This is so cool. ice cream and activism..a match made in heaven. Quote from Eyebeam Reblog:

"The Tactical Ice Cream Unit, a project of the Center for Tactical Magic, distributes ice cream but also information at a time when most channels of distribution, communication, and social interaction are mediated and constrained by the fervor of financial exchange.

Divided into a "mother ship" (Central Command Van) and a "scout" (Tactical Ice Cream Cart), the TICU harbors surveillance devices including a 12-camera video surveillance system, acoustic amplifiers, GPS, satellite internet, a media transmission studio capable of disseminating live audio/video, and ice cream. With every free ice cream handed out, people are also handed out printed information developed by local progressive groups. The TICU's surveillance suite provides grassroots access to mobile communications technologies to produce independent community news or to monitor such "un-American" activities as corporate dumping or police brutality."
