It may not be in the news at all anymore, but the revolutionary spirit of “Occupy Wall Street” is “still alive” in the U.S., according to political hip-hop artist Immortal Technique, who spoke to Raw Story ahead of a show in Austin, Texas.
“I think Occupy Wall Street is still alive,” the 35-year-old rapper said. “Those people are still out there. The difference is the TV cameras aren’t there all day. I think someone made an executive decision to say, ‘Let’s stop portraying this as a revolutionary movement. Let’s show it as some marginalized group of people.’”
