Human Rights Occupy

My new Occupy sign

And accompanying spiel: “First this started in Tunisia, then Egypt, then Libya; then Syria, Yemen, and Bahrain, then London, then Rome, then Greece; then Montreal, Bogota, and Tel Aviv; and now it’s in the United States.”

Of course, the struggles of the Occupy movement in New York are very different than those trying to overcome 40 years of dictatorship in Egypt and elsewhere; but the idea that the people’s demands cannot be ignored via direct occupation of public space is adopted by OWS from the Arab Spring.
