The photo editors here at ABCNews.com have been covering the Occupy Wall Street protests from day one and combed through thousands of images to find the very best for our site. The protest that began with a couple hundred people camping out on Wall street in New York City has now spread to almost 1,500 cities across the world, according to Occupy Together, the unofficial “hub” for all Occupy Wall Street events.
The movement has been called disorganized, and criticized for not having a unified message, leaving many of us to wonder what exactly people are protesting about. Unorganized as it may be, the protest has completed its fourth week and shows no sign of ending soon.
Photographers have captured people camping out, marching and occasionally getting into scuffles with police. Check out our slideshow here to see some of the best images from the protests taking place across the country.
Recently, we’ve begun to notice the signs from the protest too. Some are funny and lighthearted, some are angry, but one thing is certain – they are all are creative.
Take a look at some of the wackiest and most brilliant signs we’ve seen so far:
