Another one for Strike! magazine, accompanying an article called Recuperating Democracy - From Turkey to Occupy, by Marina Sitrin.  It talks about the global sense of dissatisfaction of the majority of people, and how this is a global phenomenon.  The lack of representation that people feel from the political elites; and how this translates into direct action and massive, public shows of anger in the form of demonstrations and occupations; are presented, not only as a growing movement, but one linked by the same ideals and the same loud demands for change.

I tried to show the global nature of the phenomenon, by including drawings of people from demos all over the world, from the recent occupation and protests in Tahrir Square, Egypt (the crowds in the background of the letters), to Istanbul, South Africa, and the US.
