Occupy This Album set to raise $1m for Occupy movement

So you’re an international political movement and you need to raise some money. What to do? If you’re the Occupy movement, you prepare for the release of Occupy This Album, a star-studded benefit album that is expected to raise up to $1m for the cause.

The album is expected to feature the likes of Jackson Browne, Third Eye Blind, Crosby & Nash, Devo, Lucinda Williams, DJ Logic, Ladytron, Warren Haynes, Toots and the Maytals, Mike Limbaud, Aeroplane Pageant, and Yo La Tengo, as well as (somehow) Michael Moore.

Half the money raised by the album will go to the New York based Occupy movement, and the other half will go to movements around the world. It’s not clear yet where or when the album will be available, but if it’s in all the usual places, wouldn’t that kind of be missing the point?
