Occupy Kalispell — half a year of honk-n-waves and still going strong

More photographs below.

Tomorrow at noon, Occupy Kalispell begins its 27th consecutive honk-and-wave in support of percolate-up economics, and a fair and responsible distribution of wealth. Occupy’s chief organizer, Gil Jordan, has stayed the full hour for all 26 honk-and-waves, and intends to stay the full hour for the next 26 events.

Jordan, a life long social activist, filed for the Democratic nomination for county commissioner for the north valley seat that became open when Jim Dupont died. Unlike one of the candidates (photo) for the Republican nomination for the commission, Jordan is proud to have been photographed at Occupy Kalispell.

After Occupy Kalispell concludes its honk-and-wave at 1300, the tea party types will take over Depot Park for a three-hour protest against taxes and most everything else since 1910.
