Video from Wednesday's "Impeach Obama" overpass protest. This took place from 4~6PM (rush hour) on a bicycle overpass over Interstate 290 in Elk Grove Village. This was organized through the Facebook page, "Overpasses For Obama's Impeachment".
Except for local traffic reports and a mention on Joe Walsh's radio show, it garnered no media attention despite a local news helicopter fly-by.
More protests at other overpasses are scheduled in the coming weeks.
..another one...theres a sign that says, “Waterboard Obama See If He Knows ANYTHING”....*LOL*
Good feelings, but I don’t see what this accomplishes. Unless we can light a fire under some pathetic Congresscritters, this is just all in vain.
Can you do “Pat Quinn is an Idiot” next? People would wear their horns out,,,
If they are seen all over the nation it will show a huge number of people that Americans are fed up.
They will be more likely to talk about the issues.

If as many Americans took to the streets as Egyptians recently did, even our elected misrepresentatives would belatedly have to notice the obvious.
Great job, grate video!
Rush hour, sometimes the traffic was crawling...easy to read signs!
Lucky no arrests were made due to possible “traffic hazard”. Then again, it was in Elk grove Village and NOT in Chicago where things are handled a lot different.
How many do you think walked across the bridge during the time all of you were there?
Doesn’t seem like many, plus your group blocked MUCH less of the walkway than the police and forestry cop cars did!
Excellent! This is about 15 minutes away. I couldn’t hear the video; I’m wondering if some folks were honking horns? It looks like they need a bigger wider bolder sign, but still, wonderful idea. Does a heart good...
The “traffic hazard” threat never holds up. The very nature and purpose of a protest is to attract attention, be it an overpass or along side a busy street. It serves no purpose protesting in an empty field.
Yes, there were plenty of people honking horns and some were waving. Of course, there were Obama-bots driving by with both middle fingers extended which just made everyone laugh.
Bigger signs will appear next time. This was a practice run.
Thanks for the compliment on the video. I have a side thing where I do videos for local bands. I thought I’d try doing video of something different this time.
Bigger signs will appear next time. This was a practice run.I'm looking forward to it; and great job on the video, btw! Will you be the videographer for the next event too?
Thanks for the compliment.
There may be another event over I-355 near Lombard before the end of the month. I may be there taking some video.

instead of walking down the side of the road kicking horse turds with your head hanging down take a chance and look UP
Just got the word... July 19th on the 355 overpass during rush hour. I will more than likely be there.
Ha!!....Like NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN are going to have this on the “news”.
I suppose the people in California that first did the overpass protests figured that it was an ideal way to be unavoidably seen by a large number of people in a short amount of time.
Just an FYI here.. I only recorded event and edited the video. I didn’t organize the event.
They just got their website going.
I compliment you on the soundtrack. You could not have picked a more fitting song.
The song kept me watching. It is one of my favorite songs anyway.

For all North Texas FReepers -
Rally for Obama’s Impeachment event in Plano, TX.
Saturday July 20th, at 11:00 am @ the overpass at Ohio and Hwy 121 in Plano, TX
Thank you very much for the compliment on the video!
I’m sure I’ll be hearing from someone’s lawyer about the use of that song. I’ll have to pick something else for the next video (suggestions welcome).
This was a departure for me, but for a worthy cause that I support. I normally do video work for local bands at live shows. So if anyone has a band that needs a demo video, contact me... up to 5 HD cams, great editing, cheap! I’m unemployed since a layoff, so I could use the $$.
What was it that you put in the fence to spell out "IMPEACH OBAMA!"?
They used styrofoam cups.
Good idea on using the cups; could have been bolder, and more easy to read if the bottoms of the cups were painted or outlined in color.
Stretching it out and painting or outlining the bottoms of cups would be more readable.
Excellent work for protesters and for you, too, Outland!
I like the music. Who is the band?
The song is “Uprising” by Muse.
And thanks for the compliments.
Thanks, Outland. I've heard Muse but not enough to be able to identify them right away.
I'll check them out. Thanks again! It really fit.
