Occupy George: Money talks, but not loud enough for the 99%

Occupy George: Money talks, but not loud enough for the 99%

The 99%/Occupy movement is al about money, more precisely about the power from those who have the money. And what is a better campaign item to use for protest against the 1%? The most widespread piece of paper, the one with the portrait of George Washington.
That is idea behind Occupy George. A new website with some great examples of infographics made for DIY printing or stamping bills. The website offers some free templates to use yourself. What a great idea.

Money talks, but not loud enough for the 99%. By circulating dollar bills stamped with fact-based infographics, Occupy George informs the public of America’s daunting economic disparity one bill at a time. Because money knowledge is power.

The Occupy movement is more than a USA based protest. The next step must be an expansion of templates suitable for other currencies.
