Shelby, the canine leader of Occupy Denver, and noted political activist
is running for President of the United States of America.
In November of 2011, in response to these criticisms, Occupy Denver took an unprecedented step. It elected a leader. On that evening, Shelby, a border collie often seen roaming the Occupation with her owner, or lounging near Occupy General Assemblies, became the one and only elected leader in the entire Occupy movement.
In her tenure she has attended dozens of protests, slept many nights in the cold while standing up for her right to enjoy public space, and spent countless hours patiently training her subordinates. She has also dived into the all important role of ambassador, building important ties between Denver, Boulder and other regional movements.
Shelby has also stood strong in the face of adversity. She does not seek out confrontation but does she shy away from it when her values are on the line. She has repeated stood her ground when threatened by local authorities and has even been detained for fulfilling her responsibilities as an Occupier.
To the left we proudly present footage from the actual General Assembly where Shelby the Dog began her illustrious career. May she continue to serve Colorado and the people of this fine country.
