Occupy Boulder march on Saturday draws 700, brings together separate groups (PHOTOS)

Last week, we reported on separate Occupy Boulder groups, and one participant's hope that upcoming events would help everyone pull together. And while it was overshadowed by Saturday's Occupy Denver arrest-fest, a Boulder march and rally appears to have accomplished this goal, with around 700 members of the 99 percent, and a few 1 percenters, peacefully sharing their views.
