In this inspirational film,Velcrow Ripper captures the vibrancy of the epic Occupy Oakland general strike. Acclaimed spoken word artist, Drew Dellinger, recites his powerful poem ‘Occupy Wall Street’ as he moves through the crowd of dedicated activists. Dellinger says, “Our communities need us. We are all leaders. How could we ask for anything less than the future?” The poem is set to the hauntingly beautiful music from the ‘Saracen’ album by Jef Stott.
