Art meets protest

Signs, flags and artwork are popping up all over Zuccotti Park in New York City

Protester concerns include jobs, economic justice, ongoing wars and more

Some want true democracy back, while others think democracy is the problem

You don’t need to be a protester to embrace some of their messages

Some protesters are painting to express themselves and help get the word out

This is one of the few pieces of art that stays in one place over time

Some may wonder whether protesters feel they exist in order to resist

A common theme among protesters is the need to treat people as individuals

Art is being created on balloons, canvas, cardboard and everyday objects

Many protester signs and bits of artwork reflect themes of human kindness
