Occupy Wall Street illustrations by Molly Crabapple

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Illustration on Wednesday 26 September 2012

American artist and author, Molly Crabapple, took part in the one-year anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street Movement last week which saw Lower Manhattan once again transformed into a city under siege.

Like many, Molly was arrested and held for 10 hours in a prison cell. ‘Getting arrested for a social protest is like being put through aversion therapy’, she noted. She has since produced illustrations describing the experience, including her arrest, and promoting the ethos of the movement that has won her over. ‘I would protest again’, she says.

Occupy Wall Street vs The Empire

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in Video on Tuesday 29 November 2011

‘We’re an empire now’, said an unnamed Bush administration aide back in 2004. Empires tend to create ragtag bands of determined rebels fighting for galactic freedom and self-determination, and that’s just what we’re seeing now with the Occupy movement.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 2 November 2011

Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in Cool Websites on Friday 21 October 2011

I was ready to hate on this video accompaniment to the Tumblr Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street for being sexist, and a lot of people have, but I actually find it a bit inspiring. I think it’s done tastefully, and the beauty of these women lies more in their words, actions, and sense of […]

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Thursday 15 December 2011

This track by Lupe Fiasco is one of the better songs to come out of the Occupy Movement so far. It’s amazing that it’s cool to be political again and artists of all stripes are voicing their opinions.
