Three Billboards Outside Rubio Headquarters


An image of three billboards -- evoking the Oscar nominated film of the same name -- materialized in Florida following the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL.
The ones depicted here in a tweet by activist group @Avaaz, which placed them on the sides of three trucks outside Senator Marco Rubio's headquarters in Miami, read: "Slaughtered In School," "And Still No Gun Control?" and "How Come Marco Rubio?"

The geurrilla media campaign is an homage to Hollywood favorite, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri," which has a storyline about using billboards to draw attention to a crime, shames Rubio, who has been one of the highest recipients of donations from gun lobbyist the National Rifle Association.

    Something tells me 17-year old high school students didn't pay for this "grassroots" campaign tactic.  Kinda pricey for a bakesale or magazine subscription budget, don't you think?  Why didn't you report on who paid for this?

    @Todd Gaak: We did. Re-read the story: "The ones depicted here in a tweet by activist group @Avaaz, which placed them on the sides of three trucks..."
