Occupy Seattle!

Saturday was the kick off day, so to speak, and between a hundred and fifty and two hundred people were there at Westlake Park to express their dissatisfaction with Wall Street, with corporate capitalism, and with corruption in politics. The folks in attendance were as diverse as our political culture, ideologically speaking, with anti-Fed Libertarians rubbing shoulders with socialists, as well as moderately liberal people who were upset about corruption taking part in discussions along with anarchists. About thirty people camped there last night and people are meeting at four o'clock today, and daily after that, in order to let their voices be heard, to lend support to the people who are staying there, and to discuss issues such as logistics.
