PHOTOS: Occupy Seattle Commemorates One-Year Anniversary of OWS in Silence

Occupy Seattle Silent March Mug.jpg
Monday marked the one-year anniversary of the start of the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York. Across the country, including here in Seattle, regional Occupy movements commemorated the event with marches and demonstrations. Seattle's version was designed to be silent and poignant, injecting itself into the consumerist hustle and bustle of downtown and drawing attention to the Occupy message - which 365 days later is still just as pressing to the faithful.

Seattle's "Silent Flash March," as it was branded, had a goal of filling the shopping areas of downtown with Occupiers with dollar bills taped over their mouths. "Once there, we will be silently walking / flooding into several actual shopping centers & stores," event organizers stated on the Occupy Seattle website. "We'll also be meeting up at certain times to regroup and hold brief 1/2 hour silent vigils."

If you missed it, below you'll find a peek at what the action looked like. You can see more at Seattle Weekly's full photo slideshow of the event.
