Around 100 were on hand for tonight's Occupy Little Rock planning meeting, the second since the group formed in Little Rock earlier this month. Organizers and attendees struggled with a somewhat complicated voting-by-hand-signals process, but the assembly did get some key points ironed out, including the start time and place for this Saturday's march, and locations the group plans to picket.

Protestors with Occupy Little Rock will assemble this Saturday morning at 9 a.m. at Riverfest Amphitheater near the River Market. The march will begin at 10 a.m., with the group proceeding to the headquarters of Stephens Inc., the Little Rock branch of Bank of America, the U.S. Federal Building and the Arkansas State Capitol.

The group is currently compiling membership lists and plans to vote soon to choose leadership for a number of working groups within the larger Occupy Little Rock movement, including legal, medical, public relations and tech teams. Organizers said they're also currently looking for a place in Little Rock where they can camp out overnight, which will serve as a central hub for what they say will be an ongoing protest.
