Occupy Wall Street by Dena Schutzer

Some images I made from Zuccotti Park in October and early November.
"I was particularly struck by how everyone there was in the 99% - the protesters, the tourists, the police... and how Wall St. was represented by the smug suits in the store windows for me."

Occupy Chicago by Dave Wittekind

November 7, 2011
A couple of the sketches are from a rally co-sponsored by Occupy Chicago and various senior citizen’s rights groups which was held at the Federal Plaza on Nov. 7th to protest proposed cuts to Medicare and Social Security. The gathering, which featured brief appearances by Sen. Dick Durbin and other local politicians (notably absent was other state senator Mark Kirk), was followed by a march and sit-in which blocked traffic at the intersection of Clark and Jackson until police peacefully arrested some of the protesters in what amounted to a staged act of civil disobedience.

Occupy Glasgow: Wil Freeborn

On Thursday I went by George square to do a sketch of the occupy Glasgow protest. It was a lot smaller than I first thought it would be for I was sure Glasgow's socialist past would give the demonstration lots of support. As it was I started drawing this on the bench near people on their lunch break eating their sandwiches. At the time there were loads of press as members of the Glasgow council popped by for a meeting, then oddly a scuffle sparked off when a guy in a suit got upset with something. They gave a short speech where they mentioned they would move soon to the west end.

another sketch from Zuccotti Park, October 15

This is a quick sketch of a mother and son.  He had been in the navy for 10 years, he's now in the reserves.  He said, "People in the military are just like everyone else-- we know the difference between right and wrong."  His mom looked on as passerbys eagerly engaged him in conversation: "I was a single mom," she said.  I must have raised him right."

Occupy Wall Street, October 15. 2011

These were some of my first rough sketches:

"The right to protest is something every kid should learn."

"Cleaning up elections will help us address all of our grievances."
