See our press release here. This 20 foot long mobile billboard is driving around the conference area to drive the message home. With two activists inside the “Detention Center” to steer it, the group wheeled the 14 foot apparatus right up to the main entrance of the Dreamforce Conference, which expects more than 100,000 attendees
Activists work together to unload the 14 foot tall cage from a truck.
The group then circled the conference center with the cage, rolling it on wheels. The 14 foot tall, 800 pound metal “detention center” cage was assembled nearby and towed on a truck to the area of the conference.
