Among the many artists supporting the Occupy Wall Street encampment is the Hip-Hop artist Immortal Technique. He shares his impressions of the protesters demands with Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and performs his song, “Toast to the Dead.” “People say that you know what, I want concrete solutions, I want people held accountable for what they did wrong,” Immortal Technique says. “I want governments to realize that they’re not just going to get a free pass for their horrific record of human rights, even if you’re supported by America, because we have deals to exploit your national resources. I think that’s what people are genuinely concerned with.”
