Activists Plan To ‘Occupy Koch Town’ In Wichita

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.”
