May 1, 2012 | Death of Capitalism Street Theater Funeral Procession
ANNE WOLFE, 21
ROLE AT OCCUPY:
DIRECT ACTION, SAFETY
HOW HAS OCCUPY IMPACTED YOUR LIFE — FOR BETTER, WORSE, OR NOT AT ALL? "It's been a huge shift in my perspective. . . . Being at Tufts, it's a wonderful school — you learn a lot, you do. But at the same time, you have a very theory-based perspective on life. You are still in a very privileged community. . . . I think [Occupy] really helped me to question a lot of what I was learning."
THEN (above) "This was the march for the death of capitalism, which was the last event we held on May 1. . . . There were different parts to the march: there was the bird part, and there were also gravestones, there was a part that honored the Haymarket martyrs, and there were devils chasing the free birds that represent this kind of freedom from capitalism."

NOW "I'm back to school — taking classes full time, working on finding an internship to meet the internship requirement for my peace and justice studies major, with a concentration in activism and community development. And then my other major is international relations with a concentration in the region of Latin America."
