Occupy Banned Books


In response to Arizona’s decision to ban ethnic studies and expunge associated texts from school shelves, the Occupy Wall Street Library is planning to flood Tucson with copies of the blacklisted books.

“Acting in solidarity with OccupyTucson and the students, parents, and teachers of the Tucson Unified School District we are going to send copies of the banned texts to Tucson for distribution. Lots of copies. As many copies as we can find and buy.”
