Poster campaign targets Occupy protests

A Danish satirical group has launched a worldwide poster campaign with a cynical message about the Occupy movements.

The poster features a painted picture of a nude woman and man enjoying food, music and literature in an apartment with the message: "Don't rebel; be an escapist."

The movement against economic disparity and perceived corporate greed began with Occupy Wall Street in New York two months ago and has spread across the world.

Artist Jan Egesborg, who started hanging the posters in Frankfurt's financial district on Wednesday, said the group is trying to say the protests are a waste of time.

The group plans to put the poster up in all the cities where the Occupy movements are active.
