Last week, the City of Reno granted the Occupy Reno protesters a three month permit to stay at the old Moana pool.
Tom Livingston is one of about 20 people staying in the camp on a nightly basis. Organizers say more than a 100 people show up each day to protest. Livingston says their goal is to show how unhappy they are with our country.
"At the very least, we want to educate," said Livingston. "We want to bring to light some insane deals and the insane collusion that has occurred between politics and big business."
Protesters said the old Moana pool is not an ideal location, but that's where the city is allowing them to organize.
Livingston says their movement is not affiliated with a single party and they aren't endorsing any particular candidate. He says the camp is a think tank, where people from all parts of the political spectrum can discuss the issues.
They said they represent the 99% who want a more balanced tax system.
The City granted protesters a three month permit and waived an $1,100 fee. "The City waived that fee because they realize the people who would be trying to pay those fees are people who don't have the means to," said Haley Breen, an occupy Reno protester.
There will be much more on the Occupy Reno movement this weekend on Face the State on Channel 2.
