Support the movement and the March on Wall Street South by bidding on original paintings of movement ancestors and elders. These paintings are the original art work in our Coalition’s placard & poster. All portraits are original art work by Occupy Charlotte member Laurel Green.
She is generously donating her artwork as a fundraiser for the March on Wall Street South. Laurel painted a series of paintings entitled In The Spirit of those who led the way. The paintings bear the faces of many of the leaders of generations past and present who have fought against injustice, especially in the South.
EACH PORTRAIT IS LISTED ON EBAY. EACH PORTRAIT IS FEATURED BELOW ON THE COALITION’S POSTER!

Can you make an urgently needed donation today of $10, $25, $50, or $100 to help us bring attention and support to the Undocubus, to help us with travel support for families whose homes are being foreclosed on to travel to Charlotte and tell their stories at the door-step of Bank of America, and to help us uplift the voices of students and the unemployed to need jobs with justice and dignity?
Thanks so much for your support! See you in Charlotte!
