Spain’s imminent Citizen Security Regulation is not precisely protester-pleasant — you possibly can face stiff fines only for daring to disobey police peacefully, not to mention holding a protest with out telling the federal government. The activists of Hologramas por la Libertad have discovered a intelligent workaround for that, nevertheless. Because the identify suggests, they’re utilizing holographic protesters to problem the brand new authorized restrictions. Individuals worldwide have been invited to document video (or textual content and voice, in the event that they most popular) that may be transformed into holograms marching in entrance of the Spanish Parliament. Should you aren’t allowed to protest in individual, the motion argues, you possibly can nonetheless protest as an optical phantasm.
The outcomes you see right here aren’t fairly as intimidating as sea of actual individuals, they usually need to be proven at night time to get the impact.
