Occupy Everything

(Youtube Direktoccupy, via Juxtapoz)

Ich war am Samstag zwar zu spät zur Demo, verfolge aber trotzdem alle möglichen Artikel und Dingse zum Thema. Hier, was ich seit dem Wochenende dazu gelesen, angeschaut und gehört habe. Am Interessantesten vielleicht der insgesamt ziemlich kritische HR2 Der Tag-Podcast: Gespenstisch: Klassenkampf in der Wall Street: „Tausende junger Menschen, blendend ausgebildet und bar jeder Zukunft, besetzen die Wall Street. Ihr Zorn richtet sich gegen Banken und Börsenzocker in New York, während ihnen die Politiker in Washington offenbar nicht mal mehr als satisfaktionsfähig gelten.“

Its October 14, 2011, day 28 of #OccupyWallstreet. America is rocked. The world is watching, the media is manipulating, people are energized. Citizens have come together to express their frustration with corruption through this robust and peaceful protest movement.

Occupy Wall Street is the first real protest movement of my generation. Satellite movements have sprung up in every major city across the country including Los Angeles. Making art is the best way I know how to participate and what a better way then to create a huge American Flag that breaks up into 64 individual protest signs laid on the South East lawn of City Hall. The slogans written on each sign were grabbed from the related Twitter hash tag topics on #OccupyWallstreet #OccupyLA. With the frustrations of the 99% mounting, Pandora’s Box has been thrust open. Complacency is no longer an option.
