This week Riverfront Times profiled the people of Occupy St. Louis. Here are few additional portraits of the "99 percent."

Occupant: Diane Lee, age 67

Lives in: Edwardsville, Illinois; teacher

Time at Occupy: Since Day 1 (on and off)

Spends the night: No

Reason to Occupy: "In the '60s a guy could graduate from high school and support his family and his wife could stay home. Now, two of them can't do it. I don't want to pass that on to my granddaughter."
