I've been thinking that we need to get a symbol to represent solidarity with #occupywallstreet. This is more for the people who cannot attend an Occcupy Protest themselves (for whatever reason). It's a way to show that you support them!
I think that symbol should be simple, widely available such that either everyone already has one, or it's so cheap and readily available that anyone, even someone without a sewing kit can get or make one.
I propose the Blue Band.
Blue to represent the Earth, the Blues, the 99%
It could be a blue rubber band around your wrist, a denim armband or headband, a blue belt, whatever you have that is blue, can be made into a band and worn in everyday life.
I am not saying this has to be the symbol for solidarity with the movement. But I think we need a symbol to express solidarity. This is my idea for that symbol.
I'm sure some people would dislike rubber for environmental reasons. The way I look at it is: it really doesn't matter what it is made of, if you already have it, you can put it to good use. Consider it waste reuse. I bet there are a lot of brides with something blue they could use.
Remember it should be cheap/free, and readily available to anyone.
Let me know your thoughts and other suggestions for a symbol.
