OCCUPY Melbourne protesters are calling for activists around the world to wear tents after a female protester was stripped of her costume by police.

1. We need to strip some cops naked
Especially on days when it's about -14 Fahrenheit. Roll 'em in the snow for good measure.

4. That graphic is captivating.
I checked the filename, grateful you named the artist. Wonderful.

Do you know if this is something new? Is he still at work?

6. He is amazing, isn't he?
I'm pretty sure he's still going strong. As a matter of fact, he did a little graffiti at the UK riots with a monopoly board!

The guy is brilliant! Check out google images for more work.
