This video is a document of the projection project that came to be known as the "99% Bat Signal," or "OWS Bat Signal." On November 17th, 2011, a series of images and texts were projected onto the so-called "Verizon Building" in lower Manhattan, as part of a nationally coordinated #occupywallstreet and organized labor day of action to push back against looming austerity measures and demand economic policies that benefit the 99% rather than the 1%.
