Occupy Denver has just issued a call to protest at the first presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.
The first of the three Presidential “debates” will take place in Denver, Colorado on October 3rd. We have no doubt that this charade will produce plenty of false promises, lies, empty platitudes and misleading statements. [...]
