Occupy Hot Chicks: The New Age of Aquarius

world | Nov 9, 2011 | By Martin Barillas

Youthful protesters are descending on cities across the U.S. in emulation of the Occupy Wall Street bunch who remain at Zuccotti Park in the heart of New York's financial district.

In a revealing video, it is shown that some of the protesters find their ideological support in Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi, but also in astrology. Perhaps it is a new Age of Aquarius. Like the Woodstock concert and the many protests all over the country in the 1960s and 70s, young people are sitting down and protesting against banks, U.S. foreign policy, meat-eaters, and whatever else seems to bother them.

And like those days of bell-bottoms, paisley, patchouli oil, and Michoacan marijuana, this new breed of young people is making a mark on fashion, whether they bother to wear clothing or not.
