More than 200 Occupy Austin demonstrators rallied at the Texas state Capitol, focusing on education issues.
Speakers called for more spending on education, particularly for public school teachers. Others repeated slogans calling for an end to bank bailouts and the normal Occupy protest chants of "We are the 99 percent."
Protester then marched the length of downtown Austin to the City Hall, where the Occupy Austin camp is located.
So far there have been no serious clashes between police and protesters.
The city has a designated free speech zone in an Outdoor amphitheater.
That is where the protesters are based.
Both the mayor and the police chief have said they have no intention of shutting down the protest.
Organizers say there have been 38 arrests since the protest began.
