Occupy Seattle protest march, 10/08/2011, a set on Flickr.
On a whim, I went downtown with my friends Anne and Julia to see the Occupy Seattle protest march on Saturday evening. It was an interesting mix of alternative folks, regular folks, old, middle and young people.
Lots of signs had valid political points. The middle class is disappearing, income disparities are growing, young people just out of school are unable to find work; housing, health care and food costs are rising rapidly. I’m not sure what the Occupy Wall Street posts are trying to accomplish, but at least they get people discussing these issues.
These are interesting photos of the people who chose to come down and march. I liked that families and kids were right there as well.
Enjoy the photos and thanks for reading!
