LaBeouf & the Back Side of Route 66

February 20, 2017  •  14 Comments

Shia LaBeouf installed a live feed video on the west side of the El Rey Theater at Central Ave (Old Route 66) and 7th Street in Downtown Albuquerque as part of his anti-Trump campaign. Bruce and I walked down to see what was happening around 3:00 PM. Eleven young people where hanging around on the sidewalk and curb talking, messing with cameras and devices, while a young man held two signs in front of the camera that he changed every 30 seconds or so. I walked up and asked him what the signs had on them, he silently turned the signs toward me so I could read the first one. He then swapped the front sign with the back sign so I could read the second one. I thanked him and went around to the back of the building a photographed the latest street art on the backside on the El Rey Theater building. Since you are probably wondering what the signs were all about, they were protesting police and security. If you want more information on LaBeouf's installation, the Albuquerque Journal posted Actor Shia LaBeouf brings anti-Trump protest piece to Duke City by Ryan Boetel, Journal Staff Writer on Saturday, February 18th.

Hi David. I only know LaBeouf by the fact that his name's been in the news lately. I don't believe I have seen anything that he's acted in or any other art he's done.

LaBeouf was off his rocker when he went ballistic in the beginning. I think he was run out on a rail in a few places. It's okay to protest, to march, if you keep it calm. If LaBeouf started his protest like this, no one would mind. So when he shows up, people just wonder what they're getting - a crazed fool or the calm guy.
