One of the most important moments in both the history of global social justice protest and popular graphic design is amply documented by this still relevant and rigorously curated portfolio. The Occuprint portfolio marks the moment of time when digital design and 21st-century info-graphic approaches joined and extended the tradition of 20th Century printed socialist and labor graphics bringing millions of citizens around the world into the conversation about global economic inequity with simple (and primarily digitally designed) imagery. Whatever revisionist B.S. naysayers will be throwing down about the failures or successes of the global Occupy movement (and there will be truckloads no doubt) there is absolutely no doubt that the Occupy movement further activated the planet-wide realization of the global intersectionality of all environmental, economic and social injustices. Occupy Wall Street put a crowbar into the widening cracks of global capitalism and that leverage has informed many acts of resistance and social justice movements since that time.
 
Occuprint emerged when The Occupied Wall Street Journal asked a group of activist artists to guest curate an issue dedicated to the poster art of the global Occupy movement. Occuprint showcased posters from the worldwide Occupy movement, all of which are part of the creative commons, and until recently were available to be downloaded for non-commercial use. The Occuprint Print Lab was a collaboration within the Occupy Wall Street Screen Printing Guild. The OWS Screen Printing Guild was an official working group within the OWS General Assembly. It was an open working group that for the duration of its existence (2012-2016) regularly incorporated new members into its process.
