Die-In, Montreal

by Mijocus September. 22, 2008 18216 views

Since I'm not as good with words and I'm kinda lazy ass I'm just gonna copy/paste:

“This weekend's die-in, a symbolic, theatrical event much like a sit-in, protests the many thousands of avoidable cyclist and pedestrian deaths and injuries caused by vehicles in Montreal and around the world. Participants - and anyone is encouraged to take part - will mimic being dead at the intersection of two streets at Phillips Square. Some will get graphic, with fake blood, bandages, gas masks, a bent bike tire or two.”

Here is the whole story. [hour.ca]

This is an excellent, beautiful, and interesting way of getting your point across. It immediately grabbed my attention and I think you did a wonderful job both conceptually and technically. Black and white was a great choice in my opinion. A+ work!

Congrats on FP. What a different idea. I fail to see how symbolism will reduce deaths, however.
