Occupy Palm Beach protester in court Tuesday

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Occupy Palm Beach protester Frazier Williams, appeared before a judge Tuesday

Arrested occupier John Pope showed up to supportĀ  Williams and said the arrest of others in the group was a huge moment for the movement.

Pope said while others are afraid to go to the lengths of an arrest, he said more people need to stand up and show they care.

"We hope to inspire other people in this country to stand up for their rights and resist. That's basically it. We are fighting for the future," said Pope.

Williams is being held on $2,000 bond. Occupy Palm Beach said it hopes to have him out of jail soon.
