Denver Direct: Is this the beginning of something…BIG?

Is this the beginning of something…BIG?

I’ve been visiting the Occupy Denver location at Colfax and Broadway on a regular basis and watching the net to try to assess where this is going. I don’t think most people are aware that Anonymous started OccupyWallStreet.

Discontent grows around the country on many fronts; the homeless, evicted, foreclosed upon, underwater, fired, laid-off, salaries reduced, hours cut, overly indebted populace seemed trapped in hopelessness. Until now. The OccupyWallStreet (OWS) movement has started to grow rapidly by forming alliances with unions and other disaffected groups. They now have posted their demands for voting.

Tomorrow, the students join:
