I was in Springfield, Mo a small mid-western city on January 20th and I attended the Occupy The Courts protest downtown in front of the Federal Courthouse and was able to get some decent shots. The protest was put on by folks associated with the Move To Amend movement and there were quite a few Occupiers in attendance. It was quite a cold day but a decent turnout of around 30 or 40 people. There was no problems with police and all in all people seemed to consider the day a success.

Occupy the Courts will be a one day occupation of Federal courthouses across the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Friday January 20, 2012.
