St. Louis (KSDK)--   The ongoing protest at downtown's Kiener Plaza resulted in more than a half dozen participants being hauled away to jail early Thursday.

Members of Occupy St. Louis told NewsChannel 5 they are joining others in the country in a movement against corporate greed and economic inequality.

In a statement released earlier this week, Occupy St. Louis representatives said they are taking action against the richest one-percent, the bankers, politicians, and corporate officials that they say govern our nation.

The Occupy St. Louis demonstrators have been setting up camp in Kiener Plaza or the past several nights, violating the city curfew ordinance that prohibits anyone being on the Keiner Plaza grounds after 10:00 p.m.

Several citations were issued over the past two nights to violators at the park, and the arrests early Thursday marked the first time police have actually taken anyone into custody.
