Occupy Albuquerque The Protest Heard Around the World Oct 15 2011 #ows #globalchange #occupyburque

Today was a most phenomenal day!  I arrived early at Coyote Camp and shortly before the scheduled noon protest at Wells-Fargo in Nob Hill, we gathered together to march as one to the meeting point.  There were approximately 75 of us leaving from Coyote Camp.  When the rest of the protest came into view, it was a glorious site… hundreds and hundreds had already gathered!  It is difficult to estimate the size of a crowd constantly in motion, but I would estimate there were upwards to 800 people at peak time.

Occupy Albuquerque | A day in Coyote Camp Oct 10, 2011

I spent the day in Coyote Camp, which is the home base for the Occupy Albuquerque, in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and the rest of the country.  Here are some photos taken from today. As you can see, it is a peaceful place where parents brought their children who played, and also helped carry the message of the Occupy Movement.

More photos from Occupy Albuquerque | Oct. 1, 2011

Here are more photos taken from Occupy Albuquerque on Saturday, October 1, 2011.

Occupy Albuquerque was a peaceful success.  Several of us arrived early to begin setting up, and very quickly many more joined.  At one point in time, we counted 197 people – and then, almost at the blink of an eye, the numbers nearly doubled.  Albuquerque sidewalks are rather narrow – this is a sleepy desert town – and as the crowd swelled, there was little place else to go but step in the streets.  (more…)
