As Occupiers, we love to see people taking initiative in transforming public spaces—even if doing so requires breaking some rules. So naturally we were excited to hear that the prolific street artist Banksy was visiting our home city of New York!
Then on the 4th day of his tour while visiting the neighborhood of Bushwick (Brooklyn), he did this:
Banksy, we're honored to see you paying homage to our movement by defacing our private property. You inspire as as someone who is both tasteful, and a rebel. You bring fine art to the masses where they exist rather than locking it away in an art gallery. Your work will brighten up our communities for years to come. Please keep doing what you do.
It's also worth mentioning that this isn't the first time someone has vandalized Bushwick in our honor!

via International People's Assembly:
We call on all activists fighting banker-imposed austerity – here in the U.S. and worldwide – to come to Detroit, Michigan, on October 5 and 6, 2013. Join the people of this city under siege in convening the International People’s Assembly Against the Banks and Against Austerity.
Join us in Detroit on October 5-6 to demand:
Cancel the debt to the banks which is strangling our schools, cities, states and countries.
Guarantee workers’ jobs and pensions and services for the community. No union busting. $15
End undemocratic, racist emergency management of our cities and schools.
A jobs program funded by the banks to put the unemployed to work rebuilding our cities. The banks owe our communities billions of dollars for the destruction they have caused.
Moratorium on all foreclosures and foreclosure-related evictions. Housing is a right.
Repudiate student loan debt. Education must be free and available to all. Increase funding for public education.
Stop racism and attacks on immigrants, women, the LGBTQ community and people with disabilities.
The federal government must bail out the people, not the banks.
Money for cities, not for war–Hands off Syria.
Ban Fracking. No tar sands oil, petcoke, wood ethanol, etc. Reverse climate change.
