Occupy Wall Street video about Occupy Congress

Heading off the Occupy Congress march on January 17, 2012, singer/songwriter Joe Nolan sang his anthem “Occupy Song” on the East Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. In this film, Joe’s music accompanies the march up Capitol Hill, ending at the Supreme Court. From there, the film takes a vérité style U-turn as it follows the march down Pennsylvania Avenue, ending at the White House.

As the companion piece to a combination of “Zucotti Park Zoo: Being There” and its musical sibling “Payroll | Occupy” that I filmed in New York City last October, this film visualizes the Occupy movement against a backdrop of democratic iconography – there are weirdly beautiful moments in this film. I never expected, after moving here over ten years ago, that it would take so long to see anything of this revolutionary magnitude. The debate over Occupy’s message, its means, and its virtue is to me distinct from its extraordinary visual wealth.

    a lot of great quality uninstallers out there on the web.

    of a webpage (why anyone would want to do this
    is beyond me, but if you want to, you can).

  2. Forgetting a password for an archive created long time ago is a common annoyance.
    A plan that is held in substantial regard across the planet and
    IT neighborhood is referred to as the Ideal Uninstaller.
