DOWNTOWN EL PASO- It's day three for Occupy El Paso protesters camping out in San Jacinto Park.

Protesters continue to hold signs across the street from some major banks in downtown El Paso.

Supporters of the movement are fighting against what they call economic inequality that began on Wall Street in New York. 

"It's just not fair how we bailed out the banks and they don't believe in a socialist government, but at the same time when we ask for a bailout, it never comes true. They think we are a bunch of dreamers, but dreams are the reason there is a change," said protester Edward Nathaniel.

The group plans to camp at the park for about three weeks.

Passersby continue to donate some basics like snacks and bottled water.

The President could lower the unemployment rate if he directed a drone attack on this group.

Squatters and protesters look a lot alike!
