The article shows several photos of Halasa in some of her outrageous costumes that she wears to these protests. She has become such a force within the protest community that she will be teaming up with many other important figures such as Elliot Crown who is an actor, director and puppeteer and even David Savage, who co-founded Occupy.com, for a panel entitled “Protests That Work” at an event called Left Forum.
