Occupy Wall Street Prints!

A brief stroll through Zuccotti Park in lower manhattan, the ground zero of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement, is all is required to remind a person of the historic relationship between printed ephemera and political protest.

The following is a brief photo essay of what one might see on site.
