Sent round a quick note to the list-serv yesterday.
US Uncut Chgo has this freeway banner, really versatile.
We can change it up with a couple of days notice, and would love to bring it out to this event.
John S responded to my email msg yesterday, and we can get it together to have this thing there for the action, however, would like very much to understand the "theme" of this action.
Last I understood, from seeing a status at the facebook page, was that the committee is working with UofC student groups to formulate a plan? If so, has anything been nailed down?
We can get something short and sweet on this banner, and are going to be discussing ways in which we can light it up. However, we don't want to go "off-topic" or take away from the creative vision.
This thing is very useful for actions like this, and if you're planning something theatrical, we can even incorporate it as a backdrop of sorts.
Here's a couple of links to pics of this type of banner being used (very effectively) at a RAN action last April in LIttle Village:

(And yes, that's a very cool puppet you see trotting around in that second one. Note to self: Discuss puppet building with A and R comm.)
So, please contact me ASAP with any info. Would love to help, but if we don't know what direction you're going, we can't very well pull this off effectively.
