Demonstrators are protesting everything from corporate greed to joblessness to economic inequality.  Occupy KC has set up a site, on September 27, 2011, at 1 Memorial Drive, in an amazing location just south of Liberty Memorial, just West of The Federal Reserve Bank, and just east of the public art installation, created by artist, John Salvest that is titled IOU/USA. OccupyKC has held several rallies attracting over 700 people, and growing.  They marched from Liberty Memorial to The Plaza on Sunday, October 9, and organized a march on Sunday, October 16 to Troost Park. More info at: OCCUPYKC.COM
