May Day in Denver 2013 - Photos
Oh My God - not a typical spring day - more like a bad winter dream - cold, wet, snow. Perhaps the theme should have been "Global Warming" or "Mother Nature Strikes Back". But it was - Labor Call To Path to Citizenship, rally and march in support of comprehensive, common sense, immigration reform.

Occupy Denver - Stop The Empire - Protest The Presidential Debate!
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)...

S17: 1 Year Anniversary Occupy Wall Street - Denver Photos
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.

A mildly hot Saturday in downtown Denver with few protestors but a previous chalking on the sidewalk on Colfax shows the movement is still alive and kicking! And at long last the barrier fences are down so City Center Park is really open again! Meanwhile at the amphitheater - a music festival with food, beer and lively music. Good Vibrations for the day.

June 16, 2012 - Occupy Denver at Pridefest Photos
Downtown Denver Civic Park and surrounding streets virtually exploded with a celebration of Pride in the alternative community. Part parade, part carnival and part just plain fun. From Lockheed Martin to turkey legs and beer. Support your interests and support your focus but come out and enjoy!

June 9, 2012 - Occupy Denver & Occupy Obama Campign Headquarters
A quiet but very hot day, 90 degrees plus, in downtown Denver on Saturday at Lincoln Park. But just down the street at 9th and Broadway at the Obama Campaign headquarters things were heating up. On a hunger strike since Tuesday two young people were confronting the issue of "illegal aliens" by asking for an executive order "prohibiting the deportation of undocumented youth" like themselves.

Overcast skies, threat of rain, cooler temperatures brought a quiet and reserved day to the Saturday afternoon turnout for Occupy Denver protests on Broadway by Lincoln Park. Plus at the same time an all day statewide Peace Conference was going on at the First Unitarian Society of Denver Church at 14th and Lafayette. Also protests are continuing against the Downtown Denver Partnership Support for "Urban Camping" Ban...The photos are minimal so included some leftovers from previous days...

May Day (May 1, 2012) - Occupy Denver Photos
A beautiful warm and sunny day in Civic Center Park for the Occupy May Day celebration. Partly a "Be-In" and partly a "Protest" and "Teach-In" - this was mostly a groovy gathering of organizations and like minded people from all strata of society. The Occupy movement had called for a general strike on May Day to point out the importance of the 99% - the workers who make it work - and many were obviously heeding the call.

April 22, 2012 (Earth Day) - Photos Occupy Denver
A calm and peaceful observance of Earth Day at the state capital building. At the same time there was a real concern for the future of civilization on the planet because of the widespread environmental destruction due to abuses such as fracking, wars, pollution as well as the lack of dedication to changing priorities on both a local and international level.

A very pleasant day - mild and sunny changing to clouds in Lincoln Park for the Occupy "Tax Justice Day". (Talks and information - to inform and educate on the injustice that tax systems impose upon the community.) At the same time buttons were being sold to raise bail money for arrested occupiers. (The ACLU of Colorado has requested a formal investigation of the Denver Police Department's conduct with Occupy Denver during the past six and a half months so one has to consider the charge of police harassment very seriously.)

April 7, 2012 - Occupy Denver Photos
Another beautiful day with mild temperatures and plenty of sun for the occupiers in Lincoln Park. Unfortunately the Denver authorities came by the previous day and picked up much of the campers bedding, supplies and personal items including medicines. So the mood along the row was slightly wary. Plus Monday morning the recently arrested members of the Occupy community go on trial on dubious charges - after spending three weeks in jail.
