Artifacts from a Little Revolt in “Little Egypt” – Oh, Carbondale

The faculty strike is over at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Here’s a look back at the outburst of pro-strike propaganda and other (visual) creativity that swirled around the strike and its interplay with the Occupy Carbondale movement. For those who don’t know, southern Illinois has been dubbed “Little Egypt” for more than a century. (For more details on the strike itself, see these earlier blog entries: 1, 2, and 3.) Most of what is below was retrieved from the Occupy SIUC blog.
