Occupy protestors kicked off bus in Amarillo

Amarillo, Texas - Occupy protestors from California are furious, after they say they were kicked off a Greyhound bus in Amarillo because of their beliefs.

They were stranded at the greyhound station Saturday night. And now, they're outraged, saying they were targeted because the bus driver didn't agree with their message.

Protestor Vivian McCardle says, "I was discriminated against because I was with Occupy San Diego. It's appalling that people would treat others like that. When I walked up to that door he said you're one of them. You people. You're one of them going to Washington. Umm... One of them?"

They were headed to DC to take part in a rally on Tuesday. We're told they were able to get on another bus Sunday morning.

Greyhound is not available for comment over the weekend.

We're hoping to get a statement from them tomorrow.
