Occupy Wall Street didn't just go to sleep on November 17th and wake up on May 1st. Since its triumphant trek across the Brooklyn Bridge, the movement has been marching, occupying, organizing—and training. Warm-ups at Zuccotti Park each Friday beginning in late March culminated in marches through the Financial District, where demonstrators kept the police on their toes.

This tongue-in-cheek '80s montage, produced by Waging Nonviolence, commemorates the run-up to May Day. Next up: : Summer Disobedience School.
