Occupy protestors from San Diego, California are stuck at the Amarillo Greyhound station as of Saturday night after they say the bus driver kicked them off because he didn't approve of the Occupy movement.

On their way to DC for a rally, they say he called them "you people" and said they were not welcome in DC or anywhere else.

Quite an uproar on Twitter over the situation. Police were on the scene in Amarillo, heard complaints and took the bus driver's name.

After local news arrived, the manager of Papa John's pizza supplied them with pizza for dinner, and some supporters have offered to try to get airline tickets for the rest of the journey. As of early this morning, the 13 stranded occupiers were on a new bus and back on their way.
