Article: Talib Kweli Shows Support For Occupy Wall Street.

By now, everybody knows about the phenomenon that is Occupy Wall Street, that has extended throughout the country.  Now, various musical artists have decided to show their support for the movement by signing on with Occupy Musicians, an online platform designed to help music people show their support for Occupy Wall Street.  The site reads:

“We, the undersigned musicians and all who will join us, support Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy Movement around the world.”

The organization is not only designed to show support for the movement, but also to help plan musical events around the protest sites.  The 99 percent can be documented through the work of artists who have signed on.

Artists who support the protests range from Talib Kweli to Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, toMerrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs, Lou Reed and Wilco‘s Jeff Tweedy.

I am sure that support from artists in new and creative ways will continue to emerge, just as Penguin Prison Video and the Kanye/Simmons collab have.
