“We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we’re working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.”
99 Voices is a project documenting stories from the individuals who call themselves “The 99 Percent.” The ultimate goal of the project was to record the stories of 99 people in the #OccupyBostonmovement.
The project was suspended in January 2012, following the camp raid in mid-December 2011. During the 4 month period of occupation we were able to document over 30 members of the #Occupy movement.
99 Voices will be featured as part of FIGMENT Boston, reanimating Dewey Square Park on the Rose Kennedy Greenway with the sights and sounds of the #Occupy encampment. Images with QR codes will be installed along the original site of the Dewey Square encampment. By scanning the QR codes, park-goers to see the sights and hear the stories of the camp members.
