Capitalism at Work: Website Sells Occupy Wall Street Products

"Occupy Wall Street Classic Thong"
CafePress.com, a website that, in their own words, is "where the world turns for unique products that express what people love most," has a large section of Occupy Wall Street goods for sale. For example, they offer 371 Occupy Wall Street T-shirt designs, 238 tank top designs, and 155 hat designs. If you're feeling preppy, you can even purchase an "Eat the Rich" polo for $20. There is no mention of any affiliation with the movement on CafePress' website, and considering the Occupy Wall Street site says they are "currently low on food," we doubt they're seeing any of the profits from $16 "We are the 99%" baby bodysuits.

CafePress specializes in pumping out relevant designs--they estimate they make 160,000 new ones every week. Now that the Occupy Wall Street movement is so hot, naturally they added hoodies and boxer shorts bemoaning corporate greed next to their "duh...Winning!" T-Shirts.

We've contacted both CafePress and Occupy Wall Street for comment. Until they respond, we'll just wait for our Occupy Wall Street iPad case to ship.

we have a new product to help protestors protect then self during times of riots. URBAN ESCAPE & EVASION SMOKE SHELL50,000cubic feet white cover smoke generator  tactical, diversionary smoke produce a fast thick cloud of dense, non-toxic smoke particles that temporarily obscure vision. when the riots start you need a way of secretly escaping with out being detected to avoid danger. toss a few 50,000 cubic feet smokers and create a thick wall of white smoke allowing you to quietly escape in a safe direction with out being detected. toss a few 50,000 cubic feet smokers and create a thick wall of white smoke allowing you to quietly escape in a safe direction with out being detected. when the riots start you need a safe escape rout and a thick wall of white smoke will give you the advantage to escape with out detection. when the riots start you need a safe escape rout and a thick wall of white smoke will give you the advantage to escape with out detection.  employ smoke shells to achieve surprise, to conceal a change of direction, and to cover your withdrawal and escape direction. throw ignited smoke shells in a arcing fashion in front on you toward the enemy to lay down a heavy screen of white smoke between you and the progressing enemy to confuse the defenders as to the direction of their attack and to create a blinding smoke wall that will hide your exact location allowing you to escape in a safe direction with out being noticed. this method is currently being used by military forces world wide.

Tons of designs on CafePress and Zazzle by independent artists, many out of work. Some design creative; others pretty lame.  Here's my list of best designs.

Occupy Wall Streeters.  Thank you for your efforts. Your efforts however are in vain.  The true method to ending the corporate regimes is to strike at their heart.  Which is money.  It is the root of the entire system.  Organize massive amounts of people with 401k's or even a small amount of money invested in stocks and have them pull all their investments at once.  It is the only 'weapon' the people have against these corporate regimes.  Remember corporations can not survive without your money  both as buying their products and investing into their companies.  Cut ties and dependency on corporations.

you can get free printed tshirts at the occupy wall street silkscreening station.  they ask that you help make a donation to help cover the cost of t-shirts, but not necessary if you don't want to.

the t shirts are silkscreened while-u-watch, and can't get more authentic than getting occupy wall street t shirts from the heart of occupy wall street.

I sell at Cafepress and I have been donating a dollar per sale. I get around 4 dollars per sale and around two dollars if it sells through the market place.

All I know is any group that protest without goals,demands or have an exit stragedy is a mob.Plus the money the citys spending to serve and protect could be construde as the 66% taking advantage of the 33%...

right..... lets just pick out the negative in this.....lets not actually focus on what they are saying....cause they are talking about corporations in our politics not some small website selling t shirts.

these protesters are sayin about a million things, and most of it is nonsense, cause most of them don't know anything about history or economics.

and nobody is sayin how these mostly-white protests really amount to protesting against black obama, though because that would be racist they protest against white wall street.

my sisters friend makes $50 an hour on the computer. She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her cheque was $6200 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read about it here CashHard.com

Anything I produce, including what is published on this website, is available for personal use on my website for free upon request.

But if you want i on a mug or T shirt or poster you can get it from zazzle.com.

What is most important is advancing the cause, not making money off it.

As you will see, I have been all over the cause of anti-Banksterism long before it became the Cafe flavor of the month.
