    Members of Occupy Miami stayed downtown Saturday night, despite the rainy weather, as they waited for their voices to be heard.

    The rain didn't keep occupiers away from downtown Miami Saturday night for what they called an occupalooza.

    Despite the bad weather, there was music and dancing as more than 100 people gathered downtown as they waited for their voices to be heard, they said.

    Stephanie Garcia says families like hers are suffering, and that's why she's been so vocal in meetings held here daily.

    "I wish we could leave tomorrow," Garcia said.

    Josh Lucie was also a part of Occupy Wall Street and he says a little rain is nothing compared to the cold.

    Members of Occupy Miami braved the elements Saturday as they continued to strive for what they call equal rights for the 99 percent.
