A Protest at Discovery

It's a nine-day protest, organized by a man who gives his name as just "Lee," against Silver Spring-based Discovery Communications. His issue, as explained on his Web site, is that he believes that the shows that Discovery airs don't help the environment. The protest was scheduled to go from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Feb. 15-23, which he admits "seems a bit long." But, the organizer says, he wants to make sure Discovery takes the protest seriously.

He's also run an ad in the Express, owned by The Washington Post Co.

And on Flickr, "chip py the photo guy" says the organizer was paying people $10 an hour to demonstrate. He posts a photograph of a man he claims wanted to be paid after it started raining.
