On this May Day the Front Range Socialist Party, participated in a rally on the west side of the state capital. Previously, we had agreed to meet on the east side of the building before joining the main event. Three dues paying members of the party were able to join Jeremy Craig, Brittany Holmes and Thomas Muja; as well as Eric Carouthers.
Although, we don’t have an official count there about 30 people in attendance at any given time. Many people floated in and out of the protest all day, however. The majority of the attendees were from Occupy Denver with a few additional members of the IWW. The primary focus of the rally was the police brutality that has been making news lately, but there was also a highlighting of economic issues like the $15 dollar minimum wage. The event was peaceful and was reported on by the Huffington Post.
