Freeway Blogger interview

I interviewed the Freeway Blogger today after videoing him putting up antiwar signs on San Francisco freeway overpasses. He’s put up over 6,000 of them on California freeways and thus has reached millions of people with an antiwar message. Yes, millions. One busy freeway alone can get 50,000-100,000 cars a day

He explains how to do this easily, quickly, and at very low cost. Use cardboard, not sheets. Paint one side white. Get a $35 overhead projector on eBay and use that to project the letters on the cardboard to make lettering easy. Then you have a “printing press for billboards” and the cost per sign is minuscule.

He says the Left “organizes too much and does too little” and that we need to get out and just do it. To reach millions, you need the message where they can see it – like on freeway overpasses.

  • This may very well be a”scoop”. To my recollection no one, none, have interviewed Freeway Blogger, though his tactics are published (and I have used them). He does indeed does a much better job of delivering the message than we.

  • Thanks. I just noticed that myself looking after looking at other YouTube videos of him. They show him putting up posters but not much on how to make them or his thoughts.

    Maybe it’s because I helped organize big antiwar demos when I lived in LA. I know how to make a 30 foot lead banner for a march and how to turn a flatbed truck into a stage and mount a banner on it. So I wanted to know how he does it too. Logistical things like this are really important. As is disseminating how to do them.
