Occupy Hope

Shepard Fairey, the artist who created the iconic Barack Obama "Hope," has created a new poster to show his "support for the Occupy movement, a grassroots movement spawned to stand up against corruption, imbalance of power, and failure of our democracy to represent and help average Americans."

Fairey still has hope for our President.  He continues to "see Obama as a potential ally of the Occupy movement if the energy of the movement is perceived as constructive, not destructive" and that "we need to use all of our tools to help us achieve our goals and ideals."  He argues that "idealism and realism need to exist hand in hand."
Change is not about one election, one rally, one leader, it is about a constant dedication to progress and a constant push in the right direction. Let’s be the people doing the right thing as outsiders and simultaneously push the insiders to do the right thing for the people.
