Photos: Occupy Denver marches to support 25 peers at NATO Summit

The mass protest against the weekend's North Atlantic Treaty Organization summit might be 1,000 miles from Denver, but its ties to the city are represented by at least 25 Occupy Denver protesters who traveled to attend. And when Occupy Wall Street placed a call for national action this weekend, the local branch responded with an anti-NATO march down the 16th Street Mall. Tonight, on the summit's final day, the group will continue its efforts with a candlelight vigil.
