Posts Tagged ‘protest’

Lower taxes, less government control, and more fiscal responsibility were a few of the many topics at the recent Tea Party in Kansas City, Mo. On April 15th, tax day, thousands of Americans voiced their opinion on the governments lack of accountability and responsibility. This peaceful protest was not a one party gathering, rather a group unified by the common belief of the government spending too much and taxing excessively as well. I attended both as a supporter as well as photographer. It was a great experience and opportunity for some excellent images as well. The main idea I wanted to portray was the variety of people and attitudes. I did not see just young people, or just elderly people, it was a mixture of all ages. I saw blacks, whites, and Hispanics amongst others I probably didn’t see. The enormity of these Tea Parties were downplayed by much of the local and national news organizations, even in Mid West America. This shows the declining honesty much of the media is suffering from. Even the local Kansas City Star had their own account of the event that did not give the credit due to this protest. Here are some images to show the scale and attitudes at the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City where the Tea Party was held.
