Here is something that everyone with access to a printer and some spare time can do:

(from http://miccheckwallst.org/infosert/)

Infosert in·fo·sert /ˈinfōˈsərt/ Verb: To covertly place, fit, or surreptitiously slip information into products such as clothing, books, cosmentics or any other things people use, esp. with infographics: “We infoserted every single magazine in that store!” Noun: An informational leaflet that has been inserted, typically one carrying an awareness raising infographic, into a consumer product or item. Use our infosert infographic leaflets ( 10 per page! ) with messages relating to Wall Street, the banking crisis, income disparity, and other relevant financial issues… or make your own! INFOSERT: HOW TO HAVE FUN 1. MAKE SOME INFOSERTS

DOWNLOAD & PRINT THESE INFOGRAPHIC LEAFLETS
(http://miccheckwallst.org/infographics/)
  1. ORGANIZE YOUR FRIENDS

    SPLIT INTO SMALL GROUPS

  2. PLACE LEAFLETS IN PRODUCTS

    USE YOUR IMAGINATION

    IN THE POCKETS OF CLOTHING & PURSES
    IN BETWEEN THE PAGES OF BOOKS & MAGAZINES
    THROUGHOUT PRODUCT DISPLAYS & BROCHURES
    INSIDE THE CARDBOARD BOXES & PACKAGING
    
  3. BE COVERT

    TRY NOT TO DRAW ATTENTION TO YOURSELF

  4. BE NONDESTRUCTIVE

    DON’T DAMAGE ANYTHING

  5. AVOID CONFRONTATION

    IF ASKED TO LEAVE, JUST DO SO QUIETLY

  6. CHECK-IN OFTEN

thanks! it's easy to do! you can find everything you need on the website. the infoserts even print up at 10 per 8.5x11" sheet and it's really cheap to have them cut. fedex/kinkos charges us like $4 per 500 sheets. so basically, you can turn 500 printed sheets into 5000 infoserts!!! :)

Prepare for an Article V convention with amendment countering the abrdging of free speech, reforming campaign finance and voter reform.

Yea, read the constitution. It's overdue by 100 years. Congress is evading its duty.
