Willie Nelson, Pete Seeger, and Arlo Guthrie at Occupy Wall Street

There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear…

The intellectuals have paid a visit to Occupy Wall Street (Joseph Stiglitz, Lawrence Lessig, Slavoj Zizek, etc.). And so have some iconic cultural figures. This week, Willie Nelson and his wife wrote and read a poem supporting the surging movement.

Then last night, Pete Seeger marched some 30 blocks through the streets of midtown, NYC. At 92, the legendary voice of protest can still raise some hell. If you have any doubts, just watch his musical protest against British Petroleum performed last year.

Near 1:00 a.m., the festivities were capped off at Columbus Circle with Arlo Guthrie and friends leading a singalong to the folk classic, “This Little Light of Mine.” As more cultural figures pay a visit, we’ll post them…
