A pleasant Autumn night in McWilliams Park, the staging area for Occupy Denver, the leaves gently falling as well as the temperatures and the light ebbing away, hopefully along with the Empire.
It was a gathering together of a motley crew of activists, Green Party for President Jill Stein and her VP Cheri Honkala, the rock band Pressure Point (quite good), Chicken Man in costume, local citizens, news people, puppets (or as some would say news people puppets)- a simple speech laying out the theme for the evening - Stop The Empire - Protest The Presidential Debate!
Then the march down University Avenue and around Denver University and the scene of the crime (debate). Heavy police presence could not dim the ardor of the participants or the bystanders on the street.
As many would pontificate later about who won the debate - the answer was clear to those in attendance - Occupy Won The Debate.
Enjoy the photos!
