    Quiet Protests

    People are actually filling potholes with potting soil and planting trees to show how the items are NOT being repaired.

    Anywhere there is a pothole and no surveillance cameras or police officers watching.

    If I has a fancy cellphone, then I could take a pic but I am too frugal for the fancy cellphone!

    If you are addressing me, then why would I tell you my address? Your address is not posted underneath your forum name.

    Also, I never said that these silent protest were in my city and location.

    Then where are they? Link to a story about them? Or is this just an idea you have, or "something cute" aka April Fools joke?

    It is the spreading of "news" without citing any sources whatsoever. Much more appropriate to cite sources.

    Do we wonder how many fake or made up stories get spread around? I get it from Facebook all the time.

    I did think I had seen something somewhere so did a Google search and found:

    I heard about the anarchists in Portland filling potholes to show that they feel things will still get taken care of without government. They are not planting trees where they will get run over however. I found a couple real newspaper citations including The Atlantic

    That would be a "protest" against herself, since the pothole is in her property and not on the street.
    Here in my corner of MO, we have a phone number to call to report pot holes (which get filled in around 24 hours, depending on weather), because the city will always need help finding them. (don't know about them, can't fill them, and it helps with their need to repave statistics)
