DENVER -- Hundreds of people marched through downtown Denver Tuesday morning to protest what they view as inequalities in the federal tax system.
The march began at the Colorado Convention Center at 8:00 a.m. and stopped for a rally in front of the Wells Fargo Building at 17th & Sherman Street.
Organizers cite Wells Fargo as an example of “what’s wrong with our economy,” saying the bank recorded profits of $69.1 billion over the last four years and paid an income tax rate of 3.8%. “Lower than the rate paid by secretaries, nurses and firefighters,” they said in a press release.
After the rally, demonstrators continued their march to Broadway and 17th where they performed a “flash mob dance.”
Demonstrators shouted, "We are the 99-percent," as they marched through the streets.AlertMe
