Occupy Cinema Occupies Wall Street "Charging Bull"

ReelPolitik By Anthony Kaufman | ReelPolitik December 6, 2011 at 12:13PM

Long considered off-limits for Occupy Wall Street, the famous charging bull statue in Wall Street has become a symbol of the brutal ways of American Capitalism, and as reconfigured in Adbuster's imagery, a symbol worth reclaiming and co-opting for the OWS movement. Tonight, starting at 6pm, the Occupy Cinema group has come up with an intriguing way to get around the police barricades and make Adbuster's image a reality.

Long considered off-limits for Occupy Wall Street, the famous charging bull statue in Wall Street has become a symbol of the brutal ways of American Capitalism, and as reconfigured in Adbuster's imagery, a symbol worth reclaiming and co-opting for the OWS movement. Tonight, starting at 6pm, the Occupy Cinema group has come up with an intriguing way to get around the police barricades and make Adbuster's image a reality.

The dean of Brooklyn College has donated a window that overlooks the bull for this special night. The only requirement: it happens during the College’s Tuesday evening Anti-Capitalism class.
