In 2004, the administration at Wesleyan University decided to ban "chalking," essentially graffiti written in chalk on the sidewalks. (I am in general opposed to graffiti, because it is a form of vandalism; however, chalking is fundamentally different, because of its transient nature. The balance between free expression and property rights clearly tips in favor of chalking.) A group of students reacted by having a massive chalking party, documented in this short. The chalkers prove to be a diverse and inclusive mix. Well made, worth seeing.
