NYC Illegal Billboards Workshop
Rami Tabello of IllegalSigns.ca and I are organizing a workshop to help New Yorkers fight illegal advertising in New York. Rami is coming down from Toronto just for this workshop, and it's a unique opportunity. I know Stay Free! readers are interested in this kind of thing, hope to see you there.
Activists estimate that half the billboards in New York City are illegal. Between fudged permits, lack of enforcement, and millions in profit, outdoor advertising has become a corporate black market that wont flinch at breaking laws to get your attention. On July 1st, the Anti-Advertising Agency and Rami Tabello of IllegalSigns.ca will give a free workshop teaching you how to identify illegal advertising and get it taken down. You will leave this workshop equipped to have illegal signs removed in your neighborhood.
Canadian activist group IllegalSigns.ca is responsible for the removal over 100 illegal billboards in the City of Toronto and will reveal how the billboard industry gets away with breaking the law and what New Yorkers can do to stop it.

Can you post more information before/after for those unfortunate enough to be out of time?

I'd also like a transcript or something similar since couldn't make it. :)
