Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Occupy Denver took the city by storm last year. Six days after Occupy Wall Street's September 17 launch in New York, the local branch placed its finger on the city's political pulse. In the twelve months since then, the movement gained a reputation for sound, fury and controversy as it turned its attention to local and national politics. Much of that attention has died down, but now is a good time to revisit it: On the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, see photos spotlighting some of the most important moments in Occupy Denver's history.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
