NEW YORK -- As college students took center stage at a Tuesday afternoon Union Square rally on Occupy Wall Street's two-month anniversary, a smaller but equally loud group of younger protesters refused to miss out on the action.

"We have power, we have friends, nothing will stop us, we fight till the end!" hollered Patrick Inosanto, a 10-year-old fifth grader at Brooklyn's P.S. 261. Inosanto was dwarfed by the throngs of protesters he marched with -- but they repeated his chants and amplified his cheers through the people's mic.

Inosanto's group calls itself the "children's brigade," after a similar protest action in Oakland, Calif. It is part of the 99% School, according to the group's spokeswoman Rivka Gewirtz Little, a movement started on Oct. 3 by parents in East Harlem that works in support of Occupy Wall Street by holdin
