Dan Michniewicz of Fort Collins Democratic Socialists of America reported on the origins of the Occupy Fort Collins demonstration:[3]

"At its monthly meeting in September, the Fort Collins Democratic Socialists of America branch did the initial organizing for Occupy Fort Collins. It then turned over all decision making to the general assembly. Many of the folks who stop by the occupation are receptive to DSA's message and interested in learning more about the organization. I managed the Occupy Fort Collins Facebook page and Twitter feed before leaving for New York to take part in the protest there."
