Another member of the 1 percent is lending support to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Pop singer Miley Cyrus has decided to step into the political arena in a big way, releasing a music video backing the protests.
The video footage features visuals of Occupy protest activity that has taken place across the globe. At the current time it has been viewed by almost 400,000 people.
The video is posted to Cyrus’ YouTube account and has as its background music her 2010 song “Liberty Walk.”
Song lyrics encourage the protestors not to “give up,” as clips of individuals in various clashes with police are displayed.
“This is dedicated to the thousands of people who are standing up for what they believe in,” the former Disney star’s tagline underneath the video feed reads. Her music video begins with graphics that display the same message.
One of the leaders in the Occupy effort evidently wants even more from Cyrus.
Priscilla Grim, co-editor of “The Occupied Wall Street Journal,” told TMZ the video “rocks" in spirit. However, Grim puts out a challenge to Cyrus to directly participate in the Occupy protests.
“I double dog dare [her] to fight on the front line of economic civil rights at L.A. City Hall,” Grim goads.
“Revolutionaries occupy, Ms. Cyrus,” she adds.
