Let’s check out these posters for the Occupy Wall Street General Strike on the International Workers Day, May 1st by Erik Drooker. It’s going to be a big day as 125 U.S. cities and counting are joining in “solidarity for the im/migrant movements.” Get into the spirit. There’s a classic proletariat type breaking down the Wall with a swinging Hammer. There’s quirky one of a crowd wielding a Dr. Seussian trumpet contraption against an approaching fascist cop tank. But wait, what’s this? A bus. Merriment. Hmm…

Ah, Ken Kessey’s Merry Pranksters perhaps? Those were some times. Different kind of consciousness, but still, that’s a romantic allusion right there. Nice. Could do without the olde American patriot drag. Let the Tea Party have it.
