Recently a website launched with people outlining other allegations against Mikkelsen. The site claims that he has a history of stalking and harassing women. It appears that the only criminal charges he is facing are in Columbia. Occupy KC released a statement on Tuesday afternoon saying that the movement reached a consensus to bar Mikkelsen from having further contact with the group. Last week Mikkelsen was part of Occupy KC's contingent that went to Washington, D.C., to be part of a mass "99 In DC" protest gathering.
Mikkelsen didn't return a request for comment Tuesday evening from The Pitch.
Occupy KC's statement reads in part, "We feel that Michael's actions have revoked his ability to have any involvement, at any level, with Occupy Kansas City. Our hope is that this action coupled with the many previous actions of other activists and community members will encourage Michael to seek the help that many of us believe he needs.
Occupy Kansas City takes the safety of our community very seriously. We seek to continue to create a space for people of all colors, sexes, sexual preferences, classes and religions to assemble peacefully. Thank you for your continued support.
