AUTONOMOUS LIGHT BRIGADE USES LIGHT TO DISPLAY MESSAGE
Gabrielle Rambo/ The Daily Sentinel
The Autonomous Light Brigade, which consisted of NacSTOP members, displays a message with lighted letters spelling out, “Tar Sands No Safe Communities Yes” on Monday night at Stephen F. Austin State University entrance on North Street. The “yes” and “no” is displayed with blinking letters, causing the “e” to be missing in the picture. Organizer Steve DaSilva said the newly formed group uses “the medium of lights to draw attention to important issues.” After what happened in Arkansas when the tar sands pipeline burst, NacSTOP was protesting against the Keystone XL pipeline, which would deliver Tar Sands oil from Canada to Texas.
