Rochester, N.Y. - "Occupy Rochester," demonstrators said they would be back out protesting on Saturday night, after 32 people were arrested as part of their gathering in Washington Square Park Friday night.
"This is a big question we all have to ask right now. Why in Rochester are they doing this?" said Kathy Castania, who was one of the demonstrators arrested on Friday.
Castania and 32 others were charged with trespassing after police arrested them for not vacating the park by midnight.
"I pay for that park, I have a right to be there... this is ridiculous," Castania said after making her first court appearance Saturday morning.
Police Chief James Sheppard said the arrests were only made because demonstrators were violating park rules.
By Saturday afternoon, the group had gathered back at the park and were discussing the events of Friday night.
"Mayor Richards decided that Rochester, New York would be the first city in New York State to forcibly remove protesters exercising their first amendment rights," one man told the crowd.
Defense attorney Brian DeCarolis says protesters are looking at minor charges if anything at all.
The group is demonstrating in support of other "Occupy Wall Street," movements going on across the country.
