Forum Post: Ideas to generate publicity & enthusiasm

One way to get more media attention is to be flamboyant. In Brazil, protestors are carrying brooms to symbolically show that government needs to clean up its act. Perhaps hundreds of feather dusters could do the same? Let's get creative! Posters just aren't enough... Plus, efforts need to convince those on the fence to show up. Any ideas?

Topless protest while the weather still holds. Signs say, Wall street is indecent.

I say screw the media. I gave up standing on corners with "end the invasion" a long time ago when I figured out it did no good. I stopped signing letters to politicians when I also figured out that it did no good. The internet is our only hope. We need to come up with a people's candidate and get him/her on the ballot in 2012. Not a Dem, not a repug. Choose from academia or some short little unattractive person who is really on the people's side. The person must be vetted carefully.

The internet? If you think it's easy to ignore somebody with a sign, let me tell you, it's even easier to ignore somebody posting something on the internet. And there's no point in trying to elect a fair candidate when the electoral system has been completely corrupted, hijacked and broken.

Direct action, such as, I don't know, OCCUPYING WALL STREET, is our only 'hope'. And it's more fun.
