Political Street Graffiti: The Thomas Jefferson Edition, Part 2
It's an interesting series and it sure beats the hell out of all the other street 'art' in Williamsburg. I'm looking forward to finding more of them.
"DOZENS of partying Occupy Wall Street protesters descended on hipster Brooklyn Saturday night, clashing with police, throwing garbage cans and drinking beer out of a vacant luxury building.
The night was billed as a “Challenge to property relations party” in which the group planned to take over a building at the corner of N. Eighth and Driggs Sts. in Williamsburg, according to a flyer.
They hung Christmas lights, spray painted slogans like “F--k the police” and “Life is Protest” on the building walls, but were civilized enough to pack some beer on ice in the empty building at 208 N. Eighth St.
When police were called to bust up the party just before 11 p.m., the group of 30 party-hardy protesters marched down to the corner of N. Sixth and Bedford Sts. — in front of a New York Muffins shop — and began to chant their slogans, block traffic and toss garbage cans in the street.
Several police were injured in the fracas and a handful of protesters were arrested, witnesses and cops said."
