During rush hour on Friday morning, June 16, 2006, a banner reading "REMEMBER SOUTH CENTRAL FARM--FUCK RALPH HOROWITZ--FUCK LAPD--SOUTHCENTRALFARMERS.COM" was dropped over Highway 1 in Santa Cruz, California. Countless commuters and parents of graduating UCSC students witnessed the 20+ foot long banner, which was suspended from the outside of a chain-link cage that fully encloses the pedestrian walkway over the highway, and honks of support rang out from the traffic below. The banner stayed in place for at least an hour before being removed.
