Occupy Chattanooga marks the first anniversary of the movement today with a pre-election Day protest.
A handful of people showed up for the "Fundraiser for the 99 Percent" at Miller Park today.
The goal...to raise awareness of how they say the voice of the 99 percent is silenced in American politics.
The group claims the one percent of Americans that controls the money, controls the election because they have access to the politicians.
Beth Foster, Occupy Chattanooga, "This is the one year anniversary of when occupy Chattanooga set up its protest camp on the County Courthouse lawn. We're back today just with the message that we need to get money out of politics, that the elections are being bought and sold."
Occupy Chattanooga also held a mock auction to symbolize that free speech has been sold to the highest bidder.
They offered free hot soup and sandwiches as a contrast to expensive political fundraisers.
