About 500 activists are expected this weekend to descend upon Wichita, KS, the home of David and Charles Koch’s Koch Industries. The “Occupy Koch Town” event is a joint effort of the Kansas and Missouri chapters of the Sierra Club and of several nearby Occupy groups, who see the company as a prime example of corporate dominance of politics and science. A Koch spokeswoman told the AP, “This protest is a politically motivated attack and an attempt to harass and demonize an American company.”
