Occupy Denver and the Colorado Progressive Coalition take on Wells Fargo, Tom Donohue
Occupy Denver and the Colorado Progressive Coalition take on Wells Fargo, Tom Donohue

​Occupy Denver and the Colorado Progressive Coalition combined forces for a civil disobedience tour de force today, with events taking on both Tom Donohue, the president and CEO of the US Chamber of Commerce, and Wells Fargo.

The only problem: The police got there first. Both times.

All week, the CPC has organized a series of events under the umbrella title Mile-High Showdown. The six-day protest shares ties to Occupy Denver and ends on Saturday with a joint rally in support of the occupation. The group's numbers have grown incrementally at each event, CPC community organizer Brooke Shannon says, culminating in its largest gathering yet at today's march to banking behemoth Wells Fargo.

"It was an organic decision to combine with each other as far as our energies," Shannon says. "We have the same exact ideals, tactics and enemies. We want to make Wall Street pay all of us back down on Main Street."
