The Occupy Wall Street protests have taken on a variety of tactics since the eviction of many camps over the last several weeks.  One of the ways people have tried to draw attention to the issues of Wall Street greed and corruption is through street theatre.

And the New York-based character ‘Reverend Billy’ with the Church of Stop Shopping is one of the most well-known performers in the movement.  He’s currently on a nine-city tour, and will arrive in Portland tomorrow for a two-day stop which will include workshops and preaching.
