Occupy Hilo, a group on Hawaii's Big Island, had originally planned to light up the island April 15 with "Tax Evaders" messages. But the group quickly regrouped on news of the Boston bombings.
"Overpass Light Brigades, projection teams, game designers and activist groups across the nation had been working for weeks to coordinate an action on for Tax Day. The goal was to shine light on the corporate tax evaders like Exxon, Google, and the Wall Street hui of Bankers," Marks said.
" Once the tragedy in Boston began to unfold, we immediately realized we needed to change our message to one of positivity and solidarity. Occupy Hilo Light Brigade took out this message to show our aloha for all the people affected by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon."
