ALBANY, N.Y. -- That was just one of the chants Occupy Albany protesters were shouting outside Governor Cuomo's office Thursday.

More than 100 protestors were demanding more education funding, a ban on hydraulic fracturing, and an end to tax breaks for high-income New Yorkers.

The doors to the governor's office remained closed through the demonstration, but that didn't stop protestors from making noise.

Several were arrested after the protest attracted a dozen state troopers.

The protest comes just 11 days before lawmakers have to pass a completed state budget.

The new fiscal year for the state starts April 1.
