BOISE -- Occupy Boise is commemorating Constitution Day -- but in a different way.

Occupiers started a vigil Monday afternoon at the old Ada County Courthouse to mark the one year anniversary of the Occupy movement.

A court injunction banned camping from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m, but occupiers we talked to say they are reconvening again to get their message out.

"My personal perspective on what we're doing right now is to keep pounding the message that big money in politics is corrupting our government," said Barbara Kemp with Occupy Boise. "It takes the people's voice away. If money is free speech and corporations have unlimited free speech, then those of us without money or without lobbying power have no voice."
 
Occupy Boise also meets every Monday.
