Walmart Selling Occupy Wall Street Souvenir Posters

America’s biggest retailer is cashing in on the Occupy Wall Street protest movement. 

Walmart is selling a pair of posters depicting scenes from the main Occupy Wall Street protest encampment in New York City’s Zuccotti Park at the movement’s height in late 2011. 

One of the posters shows the tents that filled the park before it was cleared by police in November 2011. It retails for $42.75. The other is slightly larger and shows a protester holding an American flag inside the park. It is selling for $52.25.

The poster showing the tents was out of stock on the Wal Mart site on Tuesday morning, but the larger one was still available. One customer using the handle TyMcW reviewed the tent poster on the site and given it a five star rating.

“Rated excellent for the incredible irony,” the person wrote.
