Nice photos. It's a good looking campus in the fall. Looks like a lot of it is a construction zone though!

2017-11-20 18:13:55 UTC  

Ya. Couldnt be helped. The flatirons looked too nice not to capture.
Its on campus. Students would know where.

Cincy banner drop gonna be lit af 👌🏻

2017-11-20 23:51:48 UTC  

Very nice

2017-11-20 23:52:54 UTC  

wow, looks very professional.

2017-11-21 00:30:59 UTC  

@Deleted User @Joe-MN thank you. The Cincy/Kentucky guys were a big help in providing a space to create the banner and actually crafting it

2017-11-21 00:31:16 UTC  

That looks Great ! ! Fantastic work.👍

2017-11-21 00:55:34 UTC  

@Erika Very nice. One thing I was thinking is that if you capture some of your work on camera, we can use it to make propaganda videos for youtube. Just something that came to mind.

@steph - TX thanks, girl!

2017-11-21 01:06:42 UTC  

Gotta support my fellow I E ladies. Love the banner

2017-11-21 01:42:00 UTC  

@steph - TX Texas isn't losing anything. Not if we have any say in it

2017-11-21 02:18:50 UTC  

Quin - TX Thank You, and your right! I'm just bitter over the Lee statue being removed, and the Dallas school names being changed 😥

2017-11-21 02:34:08 UTC  

@Erika Can you and your team write a guide on creating such a beautiful banner? Materials, size, paint, stenciling, etc.

2017-11-21 03:27:13 UTC  

@Argument of Perigee that’s a great request. I’ve been in touch with our new activism coordinator, @wayne peek, and having a written standardized manual, as well as accompanying videos, to show what materials to buy and the process of how to make a large scale professional looking banner is something we both want to create and release by the end of 2017.

2017-11-21 03:42:47 UTC  

Yes. We are about to be releasing all of these things. Stay tuned. By the end of the week all of these questions will have answers and directions.

2017-11-21 05:44:09 UTC  

@Erika we should share .xcf files so first timers don't have to learn GIMP from scratch. That set me back a while.

2017-11-21 07:29:13 UTC  

Wow,absolutely wonderful Banner,Very Professional Banner! My dad used to do professional hand painted signs,helped once-even he would be quite impressed! ;)

2017-11-21 16:15:45 UTC  

@Logan it would probably be a good idea to have an .xcf file dump, but I do think it’s a good idea that everyone still learn how to use the software to make their own custom banner graphics. GIMP is a pain in the ass to learn, but it’s a necessity.

2017-11-21 16:15:52 UTC  

@celticflame thanks!

2017-11-21 18:20:18 UTC  

@wayne peek Needs to includes what to look for when selecting a target overpass, how to use grommets, weighing the bottom of the banner to prevent flapping, and deployment tactics.

2017-11-21 18:44:10 UTC  

We will have a voice call soon. I want to chat will all the coordinators and get everyone on the same page. I was thinking when we have our next meeting we could catch everyone up at once.

Early morning fun

Florida IE members did a drop this morning over the I-4 overpass in Orlando

2017-11-24 17:29:53 UTC  

Someone called the cops. Maximum rustling

2017-11-24 17:31:36 UTC  

thought crime

2017-11-24 17:33:18 UTC  

It was up for a few hours though

2017-11-24 17:54:48 UTC  

No padlocks on it?

2017-11-24 17:56:37 UTC  

Cops will just cut them with bolt cutters they normally have them in the back of their car

2017-11-24 17:56:50 UTC  

Our group leaves small attack dogs nearby to dissuade anyone who'd take it down. Our banners can stay up for weeks, with enough dog food.

2017-11-24 18:01:34 UTC  

@Sam Southern - TN we put 10 grommets on it and zip tied each one. Took him a while to figure out how to get on the other side of the fence to take it down.

2017-11-24 18:07:14 UTC  

Little brain Orlando police can't operate a fence

2017-11-24 23:52:51 UTC  

@Mark Vandal so great
