Have You Seen the Signs?

Do you know what tomorrow is? May 1st, otherwise known as May Day, and the Occupy Wall Street movement has called for a May Day strike to demonstrate what happens to our system when the 99% stay home or otherwise opt out.
Below are just a few of the myriad stickers, posters, and graffiti out there in the streets of NYC promoting the strike and then a few titles on political art for those interested to delve further.
*The SVA Library will be open tomorrow for our Summer break hours, from 9 to 7, for strikers or any other members of the SVA community looking for a place to read, research, and/or relax. Happy May Day!
