Katie Grossmith talks with Jeremy Kastner, seated, and Timothy Mansker about OccupySLO in front of the city courthouse on Wednesday. Kastner planned to spend the whole night in his tent as part of an OccupySLO protest. “I will be here a night, a week, a month. As long as it takes,” he said.

OccupySLO has staged several protests in the past weeks in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, a multifarious protest started in Manhattan, which, among other things, decries an economic and political system protesters feel serves only the rich.
