The Occupy Movement group is an international collective of individuals whose prime objective is to protest against the global inequalities that exist between the rich and poor. They base their arguments on the fact that the banks and financial institutions in general unfairly disadvantage the majority of the population in favour of a privileged minority. There have been many rallies worldwide in a number of major cities and certain sit- ins have been quite high profile events. In order to celebrate the cause we have put together a montage of some of the artistic impressions relating to the group.
This occupation is probably one of the most famous and a catalyst to all others. Depicting the evil of money.
