BEAUTIFUL MINDS

A TRIBUTE TO ARTISTS AND ACTIVISTS
The Occupy movement and has revitalized progressive culture in a variety of ways. 

It is comforting to see this in a time when so much hateful social ignorance, corporate criminality, and destructive, dangerous political policy surrounds us- and threatens our collective and individual well being on a daily basis.

Today's post is a tribute to all of the artists and activists (including those not mentioned here) who have contributed to this social awakening. Thank you for your wonderful work.

Here are a few favorites. Please share them, especially with those who are not paying attention.

This artist in Miami made a really powerful statement.

 
Hawaiian artist, Makana, is incredible. What he did at the APEC summit was amazing!

One of the best Occupy posters of all. So true!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO IS WORKING TO MAKE PROGRESS IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW. 

WE CAN CHALLENGE THE REGRESSIVE, IGNORANT, DESTRUCTIVE FORCES IN SOCIETY IN MANY WAYS.

 DO NOT BE AFRAID.


 Here are a few more great images of recent social action.
