Occupy Louisville numbers dwindling, but some remain

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Though political activity and food donations have decreased, about 20 protesters remain at the Occupy Louisville protest camp.

Although the physical presence may be declining at a downtown park, the five month old occupation still has meaning for many of the remaining protestors.

One occupier says the camp gives him a voice. Many homeless also join the encampment. Some are drawn to the political advocacy, while others simply want the electricity, food and a warm place to sleep.

Many other cities' Occupy movements have dwindled due to time and cold weather, but Occupy Louisville has good standing with the city. Its current permit goes through the end of March.
