Some are veteran activists; some have never held a protest placard before. Some favor a flat tax; others want to nix the Federal Reserve. Some want to see corporations held accountable for what they call systemic exploitation of workers; some want to end factory farming.
Their voices and goals vary widely, but the demonstrators of Occupy Fargo-Moorhead have at least one thing in common: In the words of Prairie Johnson, “All of them are just a little pissed off.”
Johnson is among the activists who’ve helped man the corner of Broadway and Second Avenue North around the clock since the group rallied there at noon Saturday. The group is demonstrating in solidarity with the broader Occupy Wall Street protests that have spread across the globe.

I have a soft spot for Fargo, North Dakota. And, I also enjoyed the movie.
