Occupy Wall Street 2011 by rottenart Occupy Wall Street 2011 by rottenart
This is a tribute to the brave souls currently taking part in the 'Occupy Wall Street' protests. I figured they needed some graphic support.

I plan on doing a limited edition screen-print in the near future, but for now here's the digital goods...

Alex Jones is calling also for a protest against the people that run and enable wall street. The Federal Reserve. They will be trying to assemble a Protest at the regional FED offices, starting with Kansas.

Capitalism is not the problem, it's the people who use capitalism and corner the rules for their own benefit.

Agreed these men and women are true American heroes. I don't use the word Hero very often but these protesters are heroes.

American Heroes? What? Don't you think that is a little bit nationalist and falls into fake patriotism? Don't mean to be offensive, what they are doing is really really great. But this is not just about america. This is about all the transnationalist compannies America themselves have implanted all over developing countries to assambly their products and then sell them for cheap without giving anything back to the countries themselves. This occupy wallstreet thing is about an imperialistic government who uses the resources of your nation to create wars. Who uses the resources of other nations, to create and justify their wars. This is a global movement, not just American. This are not American heroes. This are heroes of the world.

Oh, I'm very sorry if I've offended you! I didn't mean to come across as a flag-waver, but I can see how I did. I realizing they are protesting imperialistic corporations that oppress workers across the globe, but what I meant was that these are American people, protesting on American soil- which is surprising, we don't get as many high-profile protests in America as other countries. It's only natural for an American girl to be pleasantly surprised that her largely apathetic countrymen are finally taking a stand against these enormous corporations that have been degrading the world's quality of life for years.

They are the heroes of the world, yes. I agree. And they are American heroes too, just as the nonviolent resisters of days past were Indian heroes as well as heroes of the world.

Do we understand each other a little better now? :aww:

Well, I agree with the first part. A lot, makes lots of sense that you (and i and everybody) are surprised by this minority of protesters, protesting for the big big majority, taking actions right now. In the scenary that their protest is taken into recognition, which would be a really great thing, I have the feeling it is only going to be modified distorting the real message behind it. Of course Goldman Sachs is not going to want the economical model right now to be restructured, for example, which right now is really nescesary: to implement externalities in the general system or to abolish NAFTA. We should care about that stuff as well. I think the true revolution will come when we restructure the state capitalism system and abolish all those neo-liberal policies.

About the passive indean thing. If i had been an indean an i had gotten an invasion from a bunch of blondie blue eyed parasites: i would have taken their hair and ears of their wifes and children. I don't give a shit for passive resistance in that matter. As a matter of fact, i believe the land which right now the New York american population is occupying, belonged to the Wampanoag Indians. Those were Americans. "Americans" right now are immigrants who came from a lineage of barbaric criminals and invaders. To recognize this and ask for forgiveness to them would be the appropiate thing to do. I nthe other hand: To say their right to defeand themselves (by cutting scalpts and ears) was not righteous and that they (the invaders) were "civilizing them" would be an hypocrisy.

I think we understand ourselves and I do hope you can comprehend where I am comming from. The american media is based in hypocrisy and apologetics.

Here is an thinker which says it in a more correct way: [link]
