Occupy Wall Street Prints!

The Occupied Wall Street Journal a kickstarter backed newspaper-style publication, distributed free all-over the city.

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. While this movement has been characterized by its savvy use of the digital publishing tools and social media, you have to admire the range of printed material produced and available in the park. The following is a brief photo essay of what one might see on site.

Zines, pamphlets, and other self-published agitprop abounds!
