    This is a prime consideration...

    The LHQ guys say as long as this is done with class and good humor, it could be a very good thing. Less of a "protest" more of a good natured promotion. Imagine signs along the theme where we "black out" the outlet we were in front of...

    (^^^ rough mock up ). Might include poking at specific shows like O'Rielly and his rivals, too.

    Basically just playing with the blackout bar...

    The Ghandi "Then you win" quote was mentioned for a sign

    BLACK THIS OUT.COM

    Etc... Promotion>Protest

    If anyone knows LHQ they will know that there is a loud voice exhorting people to "dress for presidential success!" I tend to sympathize and think a bunch of people picketing in business wear would make a sight to behold, further drawing the press...

    Getting in the crowd for the morning shows will take different strategy. More along the lines of this escapade http://www.maresco.us/activism/nyc-g...a-to-manhattan

    I think aim low, and plan for it to grow...

    LHQ has space and stuff for making signs etc.

    Could use a pdf file of quarter sheet 2 sided fliers, b/w. Those things are easy to run off on (colored?) hardstock and effective. Can someone whip one up, please?


    What do you guys think?

    Don't let others get you down. Not naysayers, not pretenders, not appeasers, not opportunists; none of em.

    I was pretty much pi$$ed off with slim numbers of people attending at FB event page, and especially with number of people invited so far, so I decided to send a message on FB to each and every member of Campaign For Liberty NYC FB group.

    Only way I can send those messages is one at a time. And there is 620 members of this group. So far around 300 messages sent. But numbers are going up. From 28 attending, to 51 attending. And from 116 invited to 334 invited. There is also 27 maybe attending, and those are usually people that would be able to attend some of these days.

    Here is message I sent:

    Please invite all your NYC friends, by clicking on "+ Select Guests To Invite" button under main picture on this event page.

    You can also share this event page on your FB wall, on a friend wall, on a wall of a FB group you belong to, or on a wall of a FB page you made, by clicking on a "share" button under title on this event page.

    For r3VOLution onward!

    Are there some volunteers to send this same message to friends of Brooklyn Libertarians FB page. There is 550 of them.

    Here is link:

    Well, there should be signs.

    I like the idea of 100 signs for $180. The printer is in Manhattan. 13x19

    I like the idea that the signs look pretty much like all the web graphics.
    I'd take whatever Justin Page Wood came up with.

    I like the sunglasses / masks.

    Good natured, not angry, I agree.

    We're increasing awareness of media bias.

    I really think that the simple Black poster with white and grey "black this out" horizontally aligned.

    Oct 19

    I'd say Rockefeller Center. Fox, MSNBC, NBC are all there.

    blackthisout.com

    our online logoage is great. we should just completely duplicate it.

    Justin Pagewood should do it.

    13x19 100 posters to pick up in Manhattan $200.

    would it be overkill?? to suggest bringing 3 mannequins labeled fox,cnn and msnbc and tar and feather them at the protest?? just another idea.. makes for good symbolism.

    Agree, I know justin could come up with a snazzy sign. Has anyone contacted him to see if he'd be able to?

    Whoever will be going tomorrow, can someone take a list to write everyone's names down and get phone numbers, so that we can follow up over the next few days to maintain attendance?

    Also, is this schedule solidified? I can add it to the web page once confirmed. However, I would recommend adding additional information for the morning shows on the 19th.

    That's it for tomorrow. We have enough time before 19th to adjust schedule for that day. A lot depends on how this goes on weekend days. I expect snowball efect - every next day more people wil know about this event and more will decide to join. You can add general informatin about protest, and specifics for Saturday at FOX HQ and Sunday at CNN HQ for now.
