We, independent members of the Occupy Seattle movement, are occupying this Chase bank to interrupt business as usual…
…We refuse to live in a world in which power matters more than human lives and transactions more than relationships. We refuse to live in a world where survival-“getting a job”-means increasing the wealth of our bosses. We refuse to live in a world, in a country that never outgrew slavery-only sublimated it to the point we don’t recognize it, because its whips and chains have been replaced by redlining and unaffordable healthcare, or else hidden in the prisons that warehouse the people of color once enchained out in the open. We refuse to live a world that inevitably confers privilege to upper-class, straight, white men, as it does under the rule of capital and the perpetual indentured servitude of the oppressed. We refuse to live in a world where we are accountable to anyone than our interdependent equals. We refuse to live in a world where we are anything other than absolutely free.
Live your desires. Join us. This world is ours-all of ours-and don’t let them tell you anything different. We will build it together.
Occupy Worcester (MA) Occupies a Home Foreclosure Auction
Just before 11 am today- November 8, 2011, members of the Worcester Anti-Foreclosure Team (WAFT), homeowners Pablo and Shirley Travieso and family, and members of Occupy Worcester lined up in front of the Traviesos’ two-story house at 24 Illinois St. — where the family has lived for 10 years — and drowned out the voice of auctioneer John Baker by chanting loudly, and blocked his entry to the property.

fight the vampire squid: #occupywallstreet
My attempt at creating a funny little stencil/protest sign for Occupy Wall Street
Not filling things with girlthings and curlicues is deeply against my nature, so I suggest artists actually good at the Bold and Graphic try their own. But hope mine works.
Use, post, stick on everything, make into stickers, spraypaint on walls, put on signs. And thanks Matt Taibbi for the vampire squid-ness
