Reclaim the Streets

So it's a lot harder to find the time to update this than I thought.  I would love to post some really in depth theory or step-by-step instructables, but at this point, that is out of the question.  I'm reading 'No Logo' by Naomi Klein for my Design Rebels class and I just started the chapter entitled "Reclaim the Streets." 

"Like adbusters, RTSers have transposed the language and tactics of radical ecology into the urban jungle, demanding uncommercialized space in the city as well as natural wilderness in the country or on the seas."
[Naomi Klein]

Here's a video of the 1996 RTS festival that blocked London's M41, a six-lane highway. 

more on this later...
