Occupy this sleeping bag

Saturday, October 15, marked a day of global protest against the empowerment of big banks and corporations at the expense of the people. In Chicago, an estimated 5,000 protesters took to the streets and marched from LaSalle and Jackson to Michigan and Congress.

Last Sunday around 11:30 PM I decided to cruise by Occupy Chicago's new home in the Financial District to see if anything was actually going on there.

There were, in fact, a handful of people spending the night on the sidewalk in front of Bank of America—most were college students and recent college graduates. Check out some photographs I took below the jump (Flash required).
