Occupy Wichita

Events in support of the Wall Street Occupation have spread across the country. Even Wichita.

There was a rally of sorts Sunday in downtown Wichita with perhaps fifty attending.

There were a few of us from Wichita Democratic Socialists of America there, getting signatures for Congressman John Conyers full employment bill.

I didn't stay for all of the general assembly, but I understand there is going to an effort to form something ongoing.

Locally, as nationally, real success will depend on linking up the young (and no so young) activists of the occupy moment with unions, progressive groups, community organizations and the like..

Here's a little video, I put together.

And, here is a photo slide show.
