Occupy Wall Street is a protest movement that’s caught on around the country and around the world, including here in Colorado. According to Occupy-Together-dot-com, there are gatherings not only in Denver, but also Pueblo, Canon City, and Colorado Springs. Recently, KRCC’s Kate Jonuska checked in with the Occupy Colorado Springs group several times over the course of 24 hours to find out what it’s like on the ground at Acacia Park. She has this report.

    Keep up the good work! And check out http://www.iDemocracy.us it’s an idea that I think the Occupy movement should get behind. We want to fix a lot of different things, to do the we need to fix the system of making decisions in this country and then we can effectively deal with the issues that are causing so much harm and inequality.

    These guys are a bunch of hypocrites. They yell free speech, then ban you and try to silence you when you have an opposing view. How can this movement be so anti-corporate when you see them using iPhones and iPads. I am utterly amazed at the lack of direction this movement has. Some days it focuses on banks, others it focuses on MMJ or the fact that City Council won’t grant them a pass for more than 30 days. Hypocrites are what they are.

    The Occupy movement’s greatest accomplishment? Making the Tea Party irrelevant – finally!!
