Are your students following the Occupy Movement as they study recent events?  These images are here to provide an unbiased look at the movement.  We have kept our captions to a minimum, merely giving locations (and in some instances, transcribing hard-to-read protest signs).  What image do students have of this protest without journalistic input?  How is the Occupy Movement similar to and different from the Tea Party Movement?  What types of people are drawn to the Occupy Movement?  What is meant by the terms "1%" and "99%", and into which group do students fall?  What are the goals of this movement?  What do students predict will become of this movement? This movement began in New York City on September 17, 2011.

More Occupy Movement PostersYour life belongs to you and no one else - We are not meek because we love--because we have thus far refused to take up arms. It is not that we fear what might happen if we fight back, but because you are one of us, though you harm us every day. When all of us cease being afraid of what another world would look like and begin living it out now, then we would know the strength of love. Union Square Park, NYC (3/23/2012).

This revolution is not solely about...This revolution is not solely about putting an end to exploitation and oppression. We want to overthrow the prevailing culture. In our civilization it is acceptable for some of us to go hungry, never reach their full potential, feel stifled by custom, endure terrorism at the whims of the powerful due to the chance of birth. Some of us believe that this is not because of the evil acts of individuals, but because of a system in which all of us are complacent. Each act of love we share is the beginning of this new world where no one is left behind and all of us can be happy. Don't wait to live. REVOLT. Union Square Park, NYC (3/23/2012).
