The same environmental protesters who disrupted a speech by GM's Rick Wagoner in Los Angeles have hit the New York Auto Show. Two Freedom from Oil members climbed the support structure at the Javit's Center yesterday to unveil a 20-foot banner attacking Toyota. They were arrested after police used a cherry picker to get them down. The New York protest drew very little attention compared to the stunt in LA when two of the group's members joined Wagoner on stage after finished the keynote address. That protest took place in front of hundreds of journalists listening to the speech. Hardly any auto scribe even heard about yesterday's protest until they read about it this morning.
