Images of Occupy Wall Street Everywhere – A Stunning Photo Diary of the World’s 99% Rising Up

Originally published on Daily Kos

These images tell a story that the world’s elite have been writing – unaware – for years. It is a story of those who will no longer accept the crumbs handed to them by fortune-hoarding CEOs and the politicians who hang upon their financial, marionette-like strings to do their bidding.

It is the story of a day in which I (David_EHG) began marching as my city, Pittsburgh, finally awoke. It is a day in which many thousands throughout the United States and across the globe were simultaneously marching. A day in which we – in solidarity – lifted our voices to the marble castles and demanded economic justice.

For we are all, truly, the 99 percent.

A lonely vigil in remote Alaska. I’m wearing a muskox neck warmer (that is not a beard on my face) and I am a woman. The dogs are rescues. The tundra is outside of Bethel, Alaska. The day is chill. The sentiment is solid. Find your spot. Occupy it. Even if it is only your own mind. Keep this going…

  1. Hi David: Wow! It sure looks like the world is behind the demonstration against economic and political abuse of ‘the people’…If we wud work for social and economic justice in each of our nations and regions, other problems shud fall into place…Thanks for presenting all of these photos–as with other important past movements, I notice most of the signs/banners are in English. Recently I saw Shekel banknotes with ‘Free Palestine’ written on them. An observer asked why the protester hadn’t written in Hebrew: The answer was, of course, that the message was to the world, not just Israel…Aaron Allen…

  2. more fresh photos from OWS Movement (New York, Washington, Baltimore) you can find here:
