Crowdsourced Poster for May Day

Occupy Kickstarter

Occuprint, a volunteer-run collaborative project that curates, collects, prints and distributes posters and graphics produced by and for the global Occupy movement.

The group is running a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a massive print run of posters, to distribute them anywhere there are #occupy supporters, and to print a limited edition portfolio of screen printed images, which will ultimately live in the permanent collections of museums, libraries, and other arts institutions.

I’m very late posting this and the funding goal has been reached, but you can still help fund an even wider print run and receive some posters and stickers for yourself. Check the project video below:

One of the first posters to be screen printed was my own riot cop image, which is an incredible honor. Click through for a video of the printing in action.

David Harvey at Occupy London

Marxist geographer and critical urbanist, Harvey breaks it down hard:

“You cannot solve the problem of global poverty without going after the accumulation of global wealth. Until you leave your anti-poverty campaigns and join the anti-wealth campaign, nothing is going to happen.”
