Rapper and activist Immortal Technique is just one of many who have taken part in and supported the “Occupy Wall Street” movement taking place in New York City this month.
Back in July OccupyWallSt.org posted a message calling for those with “an interest in returning the US back into the hands of it's individual citizens” and in mid-September the Wall Street protests began and have continued since that time.
During his most recent visit to the “Occupy Wall Street” protests Immortal Technique spoke on a number of topics including the worthlessness of American money.
“The bottom line is that the money is not gonna heal the [urge.] The money’s not gonna make anything [better],” Immortal Technique explained. “The imaginary paper that you make is really worth absolutely nothing. It’s worth absolutely nothing. It’s funny because so is metal money...We’re tired of listening to the same old lies. And at some point the people of this country will stop being pacified, will stop being placated.”
Rapper Lupe Fiasco has also shown his support for the “Occupy Wall Street” movement by taking part in protests and voicing his support.
