Billed as a foreclosure dance party and a protest in front of Wells Fargo Bank at 17th and Broadway in downtown Denver - Occupy Denver gathered to celebrate the one year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street (S17). Mild weather and a noon hour provided a good turn out of hard core occupiers as well as a small contingent of police across the street by the Brown Palace hotel. (And if one was looking for symbolism - the police were on the side of The Brown, the favorite stopping place for the 1% in Colorado.)

Speeches included one person who had been helped by Occupy in avoiding foreclosure at this very same bank as well as one who hadn't been so fortunate and had lost his home (prior to the beginning of Occupy). The mood was light - music and dancing - but determined. And again the signs reminded everyone who passed of the real issues.

The Occupy movement does not have the numbers from last year but the relevance to the current situation in the world is more than obvious.

We stopped by during the lunch hour and here are some photos. Enjoy!
