As we prepared to leave the island, the Overpass Light Brigade’s letters lit up the teepee and fire circle, where tribal elders stood in the unity of reflections on water. Fire canoes went by in the foreground.

The Overpass Light Brigade held messages of water in front of a sacred fire at Indian Summer in Milwaukee last night. Representatives from multiple tribes helped us hold letters, and a First Nations Grandmother, Josephine Mandamin, from Manitoulin Island, who walked around the Great Lakes stood behind the messages. 

 

"RESPECT LABOR" bridge message over downtown Milwaukee was filmed and will be used in the future documentary movie being made about OLB

Tampa Light Brigade message for Jordan Davis, an unarmed teen who was shot by a man upset about loud music. The shooter claimed self-defense under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law.

A great closeup photo of OLB’s message at the 350.org ”Do The Math” tour visit in Madison, where we walked our message through the theater and onto the stage to start the evening.
