A group of activists is protesting in Denver to mark the second anniversary of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that eased restrictions on campaign spending by corporations.
Several dozen gathered outside the Capitol on Friday to commemorate the 2010 decision in the Citizens United case. The ruling allowed private groups to spend huge amounts on political campaigns with few restrictions. Occupy Wall Street activists joined the protest. Protests were planned in some 100 cities Friday.
Activists set up a mock coffin to mourn what they called the death of democracy and went inside the Capitol to meet lawmakers after the protest. A second protest was planned for early afternoon in downtown Denver.
