OWS has its own "bat signal" now

As Occupy Wall Street protesters marched across the Brooklyn Bridge last night, after an occasionally volatile day of protests, many gasped and cheered at an unexpected surprise: Their message was being projected back at them. Displayed prominently on the building at 375 Pearl Street, beneath a giant Verizon logo, was a scrolling chant in light: “99? / MIC CHECK! / LOOK AROUND / YOU ARE PART / OF A GLOBAL UPRISING,” and so on. Its creator, Mark Read, says the “bat signal” was conceived of as a “celebration of the birthday of Occupy Wall Street.” But how they pulled it off is the best part.
