The Tampa Light Brigade took out this "SEQUESTER THIS! message last night.

Tampa, Fl - The recent battle over the Sequester in Washington may seem like far off politi-babble and the President and press may simply write it off as “gobbly gook” but we should really be calling it exactly what the Overpass Light Brigade and Tampa Light Brigade (OLB is an affiliation of volunteer activist groups that use LED letters to spell out messages on pedestrian overpass bridges around the country) are calling it, “CLASS WARFARE”!

The Overpass Light Brigade shine a "QUESTION AUSTERITY" message in Wisconsin.

These illuminated messages aim to awaken The People who must realize that they are being forced to shoulder the crushing financial burden manufactured by the malfeasance of the 1% through this Sequester. It is only another veiled package of austerity for the 99% and yet another bailout for the 1%. Austerity is killing Europe and now it will grip North America unless the people stand up and fight back!
