We’ve just learned that six US activists have been detained in China. Five Americans were detained for displaying the above banner (using 500 LED “Throwies”.) Video of the action:
In addition, our friend James Powderly of the Graffiti Research Lab has been detained now for over 24 hours after police got word of his plans to project “Free Tibet” onto Beijing buildings using his new “Green Lantern” LASER stencil. The same Green Lantern LASER was recently used in New York.
We hope that everyone makes it back home safe very soon.
