A pair of San Franciscans has given a pointed word picture to support the Occupy Wall Street protests in the form of Occupy George, five graphic stamps placed on $1 bills. The differing red overlay graphics use stats—and even pie charts!—to vividly explain how America’s wealthiest 1% dominate the country’s financial landscape. As the Occupy Wall Street protests continue, this new movement aims to occupy American currency one dollar at a time. Already about a week old, Occupy George supporters have been working around the clock to trade run-of-the-mill bills with a bored looking George Washington for Occupy George bills with printings. The newly minted Occupy George bills then get exchanged at the Occupy Wall Street site for a fresh set of plain greenbacks. The website shows you how you can participate; and it gives sources for all the information printed on the money. Source for the information on the sample above.
