New Protest Form: Overpass Light Brigade

A new, technologically-based form of protest has arrived in Chicago.  It is quiet, moving and makes for powerful images.  The new group is called the Overpass Light Brigade.  This is the best thing to come out of Wisconsin since cheese curds. 

From their Facebook feed:

Powerful Bridge Party last night – Chicago style! And yes, we brought out a “heroes” message on 9/11. We honor the fallen by embracing life and respecting each other. We honor the fallen by making a better world through education. There are many forms of heroism, and the quiet daily struggles of hard working people do not diminish the dramatic sacrifice that 9/11 signifies.

This is an instructional video on how to make your own light up letters on their site from the OLB website.
