Occupy/Decolonize Posters

Finn Cunningham said:

Hello,

Here are some posters that I've made that folks are welcome to print and use (some of them use the word Occupy which i know is problematic and also recognizable.) If there are any specific posters you'd like created, or certain quotes or phrases illustrated let me know. I injured myself in a fall last week so I have a lot of time right now to draw in bed. Also, if anyone wants to collaborate on larger works or be wheat pasting buddies feel free to email me.

Thanks!

Occupy Your Mind

You might think from my lack of posting that not much has been going on. On the contrary, so much has been going on, and there's so much I want to write, but I have been utterly busy in this extraordinary historical moment. This is a revolutionary time. What seems possible changes almost day-to-day. Politics are quite literally unpredictable.

I recently read a great account of a timid liberal's changes through participation in Occupy Oakland. A homeless man below tells how Occupy Atlanta has saved him from crack addiction.



The Occupy movement has changed me, too. At first, I took an observer's stance. A couple of weeks in, I joined the October 5th march around the city - a march that was extremely positive and open, without any feelings of fear or aggression. The police behaved well, blocking traffic to help the march (which I believe was unpermitted).
