Largest Protest Sign in History

2 comments | 3:57 pm | top |
Congratulations to the American Right to Life action group who have unfurled the largest protest sign in history (Guiness Book of World Records confirmation pending). This is a fantastic example of a group of people putting in a lot of time and working together to raise awareness of a social injustice, in this case, abortion. Below is a time-lapse video of the construction of the sign.

The sign was 530-feet tall and 666-feet wide, weighed more than 2,700 pounds and was sewn together with more than 4 miles of seams connecting 2,400 twin sheets.

This photo was taken 2 miles away from the sign. "To give you an idea how big those letters are, one letter takes up the space of a junior high school gym" - Jill Stanek

"The tiniest boys and girls should be loved and protected," said American RTL Action president Steve Curtis, "but as nominating Barack Obama emphasizes, the DNC [Democratic National Convention] even supports killing kids in the womb old enough to know their mother's voice, sleep and dream, suck their thumbs, and play with their toes." - ARTL
