Subject:   Re: [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Flyer / Newspaper / Sticker Bombing

another easy way to spread the word is using colorful sidewalk chalk.

as long as it's dry outside for a few days, it can be seen by

thousands. the jury is out on the legality of the matter but a chalk

artist who got arrested is now suing the city for $1 million. probably

settle for $50K... 8-)

point is, it's cheap and creates less clutter than flyers and less

waste than stickers and the production cost is $0.


please pass over to outreach if you are on that group.
