99% Bat Signal
Through all of the protests this week when it comes to Occupy Wall Street, one took a comic spin as a “bat-sginal” was used projecting slogans on a Verizon building during the Brooklyn Bridge #N17 march. First reported on Boing Boing, the slogans included:
99% / MIC CHECK! / LOOK AROUND / YOU ARE A PART / OF A GLOBAL UPRISING / WE ARE A CRY / FROM THE HEART / OF THE WORLD / WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE / ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE / HAPPY BIRTHDAY / #OCCUPY MOVEMENT / OCCUPY WALL STREET / list of cities, states and countries / OCCUPY EARTH / WE ARE WINNING / IT IS THE BEGINNING OF THE BEGINNING / DO NOT BE AFRAID / LOVE.
Screwing with Verizon brings back my memories of working against FISA and doing so while renting space from Verizon. There was something entertaining about fighting a company while being inside their building. Mark Read is the person behind the signal and in an interview with Boing Boing he goes over the how and why he did this.
