|Guess what Adbusters did without consulting Occupy Chicago?

Greetings Fellow Comstoks!
This was the image Adbusters used to promote Occupy Wall Street.|
This is the image they used when deciding to speak for the entire movement about Chicago.
"Enough of this new fuzzy movement building shit, it's time for riot nostalgia! TURN IT UP, DUDE!"
It's important to note it originally said "The Chicago Seven" until someone pointed out they had erased Bobby Seale. Yeah, you really understand history, douchebags.
Adbusters may have coined the term, but they don't own what came next and this spotlight hogging is weak.
How many people do they think can take a month off to engage in activist tourism with a high risk of violence. Way to speak to the 99%.
Also, it's nice you decided the entire Occupy movement should be explicitly associated with potential G8 Violence AND Chicago 68. Usually one has to wait for Fox News to make such connections. I'm sure the rest of the movement is really glad you chose to offer such links on their behalf. Maybe you could work in the Days of Rage and the Symbionese Liberation Army as well.
