Low Lives launches new program in partnership with Occupy With Art and The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics.

On March 3rd, 2012, Low Lives: Occupy! an international platform designed to enable artists, audiences, and presenters in alliance with the Occupy movement to support the occupation, will transmit live performances, actions, and happenings online as they occur in real time around the world. Participating artists, artist collectives, Occupy groups, and presenters worldwide will expand the reach and visibility of the Occupy protests by broadcasting to an international community and audiences. The Occupy protests, and the myriad of perspectives and experiences related to this unique moment, will be amplified, explored, and experimented with, through Low Lives’ internet-based creative platform. Low Lives: Occupy! recognizes the powerful opportunity that is the presentation of performances from around the world, and invites artists to open eyes and minds by presenting a radical re-imagining of possible ways of existing and relating.

#OcuppyDC; protesta frente a hotel de cena del 1%; desalojo de Banco de las Ideas, de #OcuppyLSX

En respuesta a la amenaza de desalojo, el movimiento Ocupa DC monta una gigantesca “tienda de los sueños”, en la Plaza McPherson, en Washington. Los manifestantes convocan a defender la comunidad creada.

Ayer, la policía de esa ciudad disparó una pistola Taser, de descargas eléctricas, contra un integrante del movimiento Ocupa DC. Al parecer, después del incidente, el hombre se convulsionó y le negaron atención médica.

Y parece que este pasado fin de semana estaba en boga semidesnudarse, porque no sólo en Suiza protestaron, con el torso desnudo, tres ucranianas contra la “fiesta de gangsters en Davos”. En Washington, manifestantes cantaron y bailaron, algunos semidesnudos, afuera del hotel en el cual se llevaba a cabo una cena de gala del super exclusivo Club Alfalfa, con Barack y Michelle Obama como invitados de honor. Mientras, los ocupas coreaban y danzaban “We’re not gonna take it”, de Twisted Sister.
