FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- When we stopped by Occupy Fort Wayne, only two people were occupying Freimann Square and vowed to stand in solidarity with their fellow protesters in the Big Apple as well as those across the nation.

"I believe it's a pretty tense situation, and I hope the lines of communication will be open between both parties so it doesn't result in violence,” says David Graves, Occupy Fort Wayne. “I don't think it will or should. I do stand in solidarity with what's happening on Wall Street and I will remain here in Freimann Park until either change happens or I am physically removed.”

He went on to say that many of the people participating in the occupy movement in Fort Wayne hold down full time jobs, and return in the evening.
