Alan Moore, still deluded as ever about Occupy movement
When the Occupy movement kicked off last year – the V from V For Vendetta mask became a major visual symbol of the movement. How did that make you feel.Boy, so even long after much of the Occupy mishmash has faded out, he remains as stubborn as can be, even after chaos took place at Picadilly Circus in London. Even if it were just the UK-based Occupy movement he was referring to, they too caused more than enough problems just like the ones in America, and some of their members even acted disorderly at the Olympics recently. All the more reason why Moore's poor perspective is disappointing.
I was flattered. I thought it was a much better organised protest movement than anything that we saw in the 1960’s. When it was happening, Channel 4 took me down to this camp, and I got to meet these guys and girls, and I think they’re terrific and really well organised. They’ve got a lot of hard work in front of them and the recent setbacks demonstrate that. But they’re resilient and they’re evolving. With a bit of luck, I think they may be around for a while yet.
I’ve just recorded a track for Occupy records and done this big piece for Occupy comics. It was originally was just going to be a short essay, but I think I’m long past the point where I can do short essays about anything. So it turned into 21,000 words and they’re print excerpts from it in Occupy comics, and then publish the whole thing as a book, with the funds going to help the movement.
And I wonder why they forgot to mention that the mask from V for Vendetta is really a Guy Fawkes mask?
