The party is over, now it’s time to clean up. You can see more photos from Occupy MN! at North Metro Photo. When we went down there, I expected an encampment, but never such a sea of junk. Several workers in the area said that people would just drive up and drop off stuff for them.
I’ve gone to photograph the tea parties as well, but they only gathered for a couple hours and then they picked up all the litter in the area on their way out. Afterwards, I walked around — not even a gum wrapper was left. If people think these groups are similar, they should compare the after-effects on the local environment.
