Photo gallery: Occupy Dallas drew about 500 protesters (October 6)
And a few humorous signs.
Occupy Dallas protestors were orderly, peaceful, and polite as they marched to the Federal Reserve building in Dallas on Thursday. The event was named after the first of its kind, Occupy Wall Street, which began on September 17 in New York and has since spread to many major metropolitan areas.
Protesters in Dallas carried signs and chanted against corporate greed and capitalism in America. "They say cut back, we say fight back" was a popular chant.
None of the approximate 500 participants were arrested, compared to 700 arrests at a similar protest in New York last weekend. Dozens of police watched on.
