Protesters occupied downtown Houston for the fifth day this week.

Protests continued Sunday in spite of the rain.

Demonstrators pitched tents at Eleanor Tinsley Park to dodge the downpour.

The Occupy Houston protests started Monday.

Occupy Houston is one of many nationwide spin-offs of the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York.
