Raisethefist.com drops banner over West Hollywood, "CIA CREATED BIN LADEN ......

by rtf Tuesday, Oct. 02, 2001 at 10:20 AM

Raisethefist.com has dropped a wonderful banner over a freeway overpass in west Hollywood for all to see.

The banner which reads, "CIA CREATED BIN LADEN & TALIBAN. Blood on your hands USA" was dropped so conveniently, right next to an american flag put up by someone else a couple weeks ago.

The banner was dropped at aprox 4:35am Monday morning. Just in time for rush-hour traffic.

About 12 pictures from 4 different angles were taken moments after the banner was hung. The pics will be developed ASAP and then posted on LA IMC, and Raisethefist.com.

If you're in Los Angeles, you should defiantly get a picture of this before some conservative nationalist or some cop takes it down. The only shots taken of the banner so far are night-shots (with flash). Some day-shots would be nice.

If your coming from the valley, you'll want to go south on the 101 towards Los Angeles, then get off on vineland, make right, go up to Ventura, make a left, and keep going until you hit Cahuanga Blvd. (the cuhanga overpass), keep going up to Barham Blvd., then go up about another 300-400 ft until you pass the 2nd overpass. The banner is hanging facing the direction your driving so you'll want to look behind you, because it's facing oncoming traffic, make a U-turn if you have to. If you reach the Hollywood bowl you've gone too far.

If your coming from downtown Los Angeles, long beach . etc.. get to the 101 north and get on to the 101 Hollywood fwy, keep going just before you hit studio city.

We'll see how long this stay's up!!!
