Beginning in January 2012, MicCheckWallSt, a subsidiary of Seattle's Occupy Wall Street group, began performing a series of silent vigils and marches throughout shopping areas and in front of banks in various Seattle neighborhoods. Images are from the first silent vigil outside of Westlake shopping center. Participants glued dollar bills to the outside of their mouths. Bills included statements such as:

Some are more equal than others
Come buy me
Define fulfillment
$ does not = speech

"No chanting, singing, or drums, etc...We make our point by engaging in eye contact with as many of the people that pass by as possible and holding it just a little bit too long".
