This is one way to get politicians' attention.

Yesterday, around 150 activists descended on the offices of Senators Michael Bennet and Mark Udall to urge them to avoid "fiscal cliff" negotiations that protect the wealthy and burden the middle class. Protesters did so in 24 different shifts every twenty minutes, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event, in which activists urged the officials that "no deal is better than a bad deal" when it comes to the looming "fiscal cliff," was organized by Colorado Fair Share, an advocacy group known for its colorful protests and creative tactics to pressure elected officials on various issues.

In Aurora, the organizers went after Representative Mike Coffman, one of the group's regular targets, to ask him to extend middle class tax cuts and to raise taxes on the wealthiest 2 percent.

Below are photos from the protest, courtesy of Jenny Davies-Schley, one of the organizers.

Oh look, it's the 47%, and they seem to have plenty of time and energy to do something other than earn a living.


Good work Colorado Fair Share! Both Udall and Bennet are both poor excuses for Democrats and are nothing more than republican-lite. Both of them need to be primaried with Progessive Dem candidates! D.I.N.O.s, the both of them!
