What do people think about occupying major highways and streets? This would have a major impact on how cities operate -- more so than occupying parks that are relatively out of the way. It is a commonly used tactic throughout Latin America. Al Jazeera provides some excellent insight into how this will work and how it can be effective in establishing change:

I would not suggest occupying the highway unless you are willing to be hit by a car. With all the distracted drivers (and people in a rush to get to/from work or school) there could be some major consequences. And for what? At most you're just going to make the majority of the population royally pissed at you.
