Subject:   [september17discuss] Media 30 seconds

Talking to the media can be really challenging. I agree with the other

messages that first we act in solidarity with one another. (We have

enough people against us.)


Those of us who have not gotten to go to a media training can still

practice a 30 second sound bite with a friend. It is hard to put it

all in such a short time span, so practice is key. What do you want to

say. Pick one message. "I am out on the street because ..." "I want to

occupy Wall Street because ..." "I believe together we can create a

different ... "


One sweet short point. After 30 seconds you are cut off, so work at

the time frame.


I am so thrilled to be a part of this action and to have already met

so many inspiring folks.


In Solidarity,
