Occupy Kansas City

We were up at Liberty Memorial and took a walk around the tent encampment of Occupy KC. It was quieter during the week than it has been on weekends. Someone told us it this was their sixth week in front of the Federal Reserve building. Waste was separated into compost, recycling and general trash on the side of the foot path. Blankets hung from tree limbs, trampled signs littered the grass and one woman was folding a cardboard box of laundry. The "End War" sign makes us ask whether this is still about protesting corporate greed. As Occupy Wall Street is being dismantled in New York, we wonder how much longer the remaining Occupies around the country will last.
