Anti-eviction protesters demonstrated Saturday in the Austin community.

They chanted: "We gotta beat back the bank's attack. We gotta beat, beat back the bank's attack!"

The protesters waved signs and chanted slogans outside a building that they say was unfairly put into foreclosure by a bank two weeks ago. A resident of the apartment building opened a window and waved and chanted with the demonstrators.

A group called Occupy Austin said its members will engage in non-violent mass organizing to fight alleged greed and corruption that victimize lower-income people.
