Subject:   [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Flyer / Newspaper / Sticker Bombing
 

It's come to my attention that word and interest of occupy wall street

has not been circulating as much as some people (myself included)

would like in other parts of New York. I met with someone yesterday

(Who's looking to join the media team) who specializes in alternative

advertising, as well as taking the time to talk with some people

involved in the Arab Spring and the Spanish Revolution. They were all

surprised that we have been operating in such a limited space and

making people come to us, or watch online, if they are interested in

learning about the revolution.

 

Some of the suggested ideas in this discussion were:

-Getting teams on the subways handing out papers and flyers to inform

people of the revolution

-Getting teams of 15-20+ to go in to different areas of the city every

day with hundreds of flyers or stickers about Occupy and taping /

sticking them to walls so that everywhere you go you see something

about the revolution

-"Sticker Bombing" was a suggested idea, so that you cover whole

walls / blocks / avenues with stickers about the revolution.

 

 

 

The idea being that you don't need a computer or a camera or the

internet to help spread the word of the revolution, but you can peak

someones interest because if every time the get on to or get off of

the subway, or everytime they leave they apartment building they see

100 flyers and stickers of the revolution, they are going to want to

see what it is about and want to check it out.

 

 

(Also, who would I speak to about a proposal to move in to our second

camp, because it's getting to the point where so many people come to

our first and only camp that it's counter-productive because there is

no room to move, sleep, work etc.)
