Occupy Seattle protesters organizing Silent Flash March Monday

Occupy Seattle protesters are planning a Silent Flash March in downtown Seattle on Monday.

The march to mark the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Westlake Park.

Organizers are asking participants to bring a dollar bill to be taped over their mouths.

"Right now, with every dollar we spend, we give corporations more and more influence over our politics, over our healthcare, our government, our society, and our future. With every dollar we give them more and more influence over our daily lives," says the message demonstrators plan to hand out at the march. "Together let us reclaim our voices with silence."

The march is meant to be totally silent, with organizers recommending participants don't chant, speak or sing, and instead, "make our point by making eye contact with as many of the people we pass as possible and holding it just a little too long."

Occupy Wall Street protesters have also been marching in small groups around Manhattan's financial district to mark the anniversary of the grass-roots movement.

I'd like them to tape Eisenhower dollars over their eyes, too.

Is it possible to be any more pathologically starved for attention than these losers? Are their lives really that pathetic? “Look at me, Me, ME!”

I guess when you ARE stupid, looking stupid is a small thing.

I know where I’m going for my first annual booger-flicking march.

6:30 pm?

The only people left in town will be tourists and the homeless.

So grow your own food, make your own clothing, build your own houses. Nobody is stopping you!

Because the OWS protesters can sometimes be violent, Michael Moore needs to stop making bad films that inflame them.

If they had any idea how many filthy hands have fondled the money, they wouldn’t be doing this.

I’m going to run a concession stand - selling dollar bills with “Occupy” printed on them and a couple pieces of tape. I figure $20 apiece ought to be a fair price...

As an aside...

Am I the only person here who is glad this guy is covering most of his disgusting facial skin condition?

Maybe we can chip in a few bucks to finish the job.

I live near Seattle, so I'll be rejecting all bills with "#occupy" written on them. You never know what you might catch from one of those bills.

Thanks for posting this article.

Protesters having a SILENT protest?

The DNC is going to have to pay them a lot more, if they expect them to keep their mouths shut.

I would bet they CANNOT do it. (and bet there will be a lot of ‘cheating’)

You are wise. All those bills will have spent an uncomfortably long time parked beneath OWSers’ snot-pumps.

What kind of tape?

I see two choices.

Cheap DUCK (not duct) tape that really doesn't stick to much of anything... or Medical Tape, which sticks really, really well, especially to hair.

Add a picture of Mohammed to the bills, and the protests will be 'short lived'.
