Saturday's Occupy Phoenix rally in downtown Phoenix was packed with hippies, teachers, communists, anarchists, stoners, people dressed as cows, people dressed as cops, people with guns, and they all have one thing in common: they're mad as hell and they're not gonna take it anymore.

On Saturday, Maker Bench Tempe, Roosevelt Row, Tony Felice PR, MAKE Magazine, and CRAFT magazine brought science, art, and engineering together in the Roosevelt Row district in downtown Phoenix. More photos here.
