Occupy Sydney

Occupy. A single word that has unified people and countries around the world, people of all race, age and background. As the divide between the top 1 % of the worlds wealthiest people and the rest of the world continues to grow, Occupy is a physical demonstration of the unhappiness of the path the world is heading. A demonstration for change.

These photos were taken in the heart of Sydney's CBD - Martin Place, during the peak of the occupation in October 2011 when Sydney joined the rest of the world in demonstration.
