On 17th September, 2011, thousands of protesters crowded into New York City’s Zuccotti Park, in the heart of Wall Street, thrusting the issue of economic inequality into the national spotlight. Overnight, the space was transformed into the birthplace of a political movement that would change national conversation around economic equality in the United States. This was the Occupy Movement. It spoke out against the unstable way that big corporations and the global financial system controlled the world to benefit only the few. This was the 99%, the protesters announced. Although they were forced out of Zuccotti Park on 15th November later that year, by that point the movement had spread across the nation, and indeed across the world. Protesters continued to demonstrate at banks, corporate buildings, foreclosed homes and college campuses, where they knew students were accumulating staggering debt on a global scale. Their voices couldn’t be silenced. Now it’s your turn: add your voice with this retro poster style card!
