Louisville will be among the hundreds of cities where protesters will hold a modern day version of the Boston Tea Party this week.

The local event is being organized by 24 year old Wendy Caswell, who says she unhappy with
federal government bailouts and the growing national debt.

“I’ve just recently started watching politics in general in the news in the last couple of years and just have really been shocked and amazed at what I have seen. I went to look for a local tea party just to get my voice heard. There wasn’t one so i just decided to start one,” she said.

Wednesday’s Louisville event begins at 11:00am at Jefferson Square Park. Caswell says there will be a series of speakers.
