I met up with a few members of the KC-area Russian community at Mill Creek Park on the Plaza Saturday afternoon to get a couple pics at a small protest of the allegedly fraudulent elections recently held back in Russia. Large protests have happened in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Saturday Dec. 10, 2011.
Pics from the Occupy Kansas City rally downtown near City Hall on Sunday 10/30/11. The group later marched to the Northeast section of KCMO after I departed.
The Occupy KC protest picked up some steam Sunday with a round of speakers and a march to the Plaza in the afternoon from Penn Valley Memorial Park where the protest sit-in has been taking place near the IOU/USA shipping container temporary art installation by John Salvest. October 9, 2011.

This morning (Saturday June 4) a protest by local Catholics took place across the street from Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception at 11th and Broadway in downtown Kansas City, MO due to revelations of a Kansas City Diocese cover-up and consultation with their own lawyers over the discovery of child pornography on Father Shawn Ratigan’s computer in December 2010. Bishop Finn, who is being called on to resign, was inside ordaining deacons. More info can be found here. I got word of the protest this morning via this article on Tony’s Kansas City.
