The #OWS Jedi returned to DTLA for the third weekend running, and the force was with @OccupyLA with an estimated turnout of 3 to 5K for today’s Global Revolution Day march through the city’s financial district.

Added benefits to this protesting business: Marching is pretty much the same as hiking, but with more signs + you can walk the dog.

Another four-legged protester. If corporations can claim citizenship, dogs can too! #JustSaying

Protesting is thirsty work though.

The LAPD continues to be lovely…#Shame the same can’t be said for the NYPD. In New York today they arrested a group of Citi Bank customers — for trying to close their accounts — for realz! Later, 74 protesters were arrested in Times Square. Meanwhile in Denver, riot police broke things up again, and in Chicago they’re trying to evict protesters.

In NYC police have also been detaining protesters for violating an obscure law dating back to 1845 which was intended to stop tenant farmers from covering their faces during a peasant uprising (well I guess #OWS really is one of those!). Meanwhile, in London, Julian Assange was asked to remove his mask by police there. Things are going to get really confusing come Halloween. #JustSaying

Fortunately, in LA, protesting is a family affair.

Lovely weather for it too!

Imagine what the world would be like if the rich and corporations paid their fair share.

To clarify: What part of shared sacrifice don’t you get?

Contrary to what the 1% owned mainstream media would have you believe, we are not rebels without a cause.

The 99 percent are fighting for <3, =ity, & abundance 4 all. I think you should join us!

Because this 99 percenter would like a future worth looking forward to.

Dear 1%, Are you getting it yet?
