Stop The Lens Releases Anti-Lens Video
The video is in response to promotional videos released earlier this month supporting the "Lens".
In the video shown above, local business owners and activists associated with the group "Stop the Lens" speak out against the Michael Maltzan design. The "Lens" is the pier design slated to replace the existing St. Petersburg Pier
Stop the Lens posted the video Sunday night, along with the message: "You think the pitchman Sully knows how to make some media stuff? Concerned Citizens is on the move."
Sullivan told Patch earlier this year that "Lens" supporters need to speak up because their voices were being drowned out by those opposing the project.
"If you like the 'Lens' speak up," Sullivan told Patch in October. "Don't let it be steamrolled over. People seem to think I’m anti-democracy. I would just like people who like of the idea of the 'Lens' to come out, speak up and get into conservation."
