Occupy Denver has been no stranger to celebrity appearances and artistic expressions of solidarity. Among others, the movement has hosted Peter Yarrow (of 'Peter Paul and Mary'), Michael Moore, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and local poet Noah Gauthier.
Occupy Denver now has a music video. Filmed in Denver's Civic Center Park, '99th Problem' opens with a line from Congressman Alan Grayson on Real Time with Bill Maher:
If I am a spokesman for all of the people who think that we should not have 24 million people in this country who can't find a full-time job, that would should not have 50 million people in this country who can't see a doctor when they're sick, that we shouldn't have 47 million people in this country who need government help in order to feed themselves, and we shouldn't have 15 million families who owe more on their mortgage than the value of their home -- okay, I'll be that spokesman.
The video features Flobots frontman Jamie Laurie ('Jonny 5'), Bravo One (of One Eyed Kings), Mane Rok, Aja Black (The ReMINDers), T minus Katlyn (Kalyn Heffernan of Wheelchair Sports Camp), DJ Es Nine (Prime Element), produced by Dyalekt (of Diamond Boiz), film provided by the Lockerpartners.
