We have a few Jacks in the Occupy Wall Street Movement, and this photo essay is about one of them– Jack the Occupy-R-Us Guy, aka Jack the Occupy-dot-com Guy, aka Jack the Coney Island Guy, aka Jack the T-Shirt guy, aka Jack the “Tear Down These Walls, America” Guy, aka Jack the Union Square Guy, among other names. Loud, brash and knowledgeable, Jack uses his protest skills to defend other protesters. As an example, in this photo essay, the police and Brookfield Security were harassing Occupiers about their Info Station. Jack came by, saw what was happening, and like a bulldog went after the NYPD and Brookfield Security. He diverted their attention, kept it, and left the police and security with nothing to do at the end but stand dumbfounded in the hot sun wondering why they bothered us in the first place.
Jack is a hard-ground warrior. Jack never surrenders. We love Jack!
