I heartily encourage and would love to participate in all of these activities - despite the fact that, excepting chalk drawings, they are illegal!

Please be aware that stickers, too, are illegal, just as much as graffiti with ink, acid, scratch and paint. Please advise all participants of this fun and risky fact.

Stickers are cheap, people like putting them places and they can be made quick! 1-800-Postcards is in downtown Manhattan, they're fast, cheap and could maybe even be down with our cause and give us a discount? That last bit might be wishful thinking but regardless, we need to get in people's faces.

I was just surprised that people outside of Century 21 or around the
9/11 memorial were oblivious to the OWS that was happening around the
corner and some well placed chalk lines with arrows pointing the way
could be a fun way to let them know.

together!
