Watch: “Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street.”

Great Video, Actually. Redefining exploitative language, along with Capitalistic society.

Don’t worry, it’s not only respectful but truly beautiful, and inspiring to watch.

“We’re not going anywhere.”

Keep the Occupy Wall Street movement “hot” by making a donation and turning up the “heat” on corporatism.

I just made a donation for the NYC OWS here: http://www.nycga.net/how-to-help/

You can find other national OWS movements to donate to here: http://occupywallst.org/donate/

I gave what I could. So should you.

And yes, there’s a Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street tumblr to go with it.

 

More Context:

Greenstreet, writing on his own website, agreed that the “Hot Chicks” idea, at first, was “admittedly sophomoric.” But once at Zuccotti Park, he wrote, “it evolved into something more”:

“There was a vibrant energy in the air, a warmth of community and family, and the voices we heard were so hopeful and passionate. Pretty faces were making signs, giving speeches, organizing crowds, handing out food, singing, dancing, debating, hugging and marching.

“It made me want to pack my bags and pitch a tent on Wall Street. And it’s in the light that we created this video.

“And we hope it makes you want to be there too.”

Greenstreet also welcomed his critics. “I encourage you to use that as an excuse to create constructive discussions about the issues you have,” he wrote. “Because, to be honest, any excuse is a good excuse to bring up the topic of women’s rights.”

Greenstreet’s street cred as a card-carrying liberal…

…One of the women in the “Hot Chicks” video, an Egyptian-born woman named Dania, wrote to Greenstreet, thanking him “for capturing the feminine side of the story and [letting] you know that i do not care if you call me a hot chick. It’s actually humorous and i love it!”
