Forum Post: What do you want? Protest in the streets or political activism? Won't happen either way unless you communicate.

You want backing and support. You want all of America to get involved. So do I. This is why I am forwarding you this video of Bernie Sanders speaking in the Senate. I think it carries a lot of weight and should go viral. You may have already seen this but if not I attached the vid link.

All of America needs to come together and unite in common cause - I believe this video can help. The more people who see it the more who will be asking questions. The more people will want to get involved. I am sharing this out to all who can get the message spread.

Nice post, Bernie S. is great (maybe one or two others out there worthy of our kind words, like Dennis Kucinich).

A heads-up I am talking with jart to see about starting a educational outreach site.

Looking at my earlier comments - some corpo-rat does not like the idea.

Sounds cool, I have a lot of education, so if I can help ... email me. I'm heading down to Manhattan now (for tonight's protest) -- hopefully see some of you'all there (I know you live in MN DKA, but anyone near NYC, come on down).

Protest in the streets

If voting changed anything they would make it illegal- Emma Goldman

OK - and then you also know that communication is needed to get people into the streets and shouting for change.

Use social media and all of the information that comes to hand that demonstrates common cause and need.

People this does not happen without communications and outreach.

What do I want? Protests in the streets or political activism?

Personally, I want to see millions, tens of millions in the street in massive strikes and demonstrations. Nothing shakes up the status quo more than that, in their face confirmation that they have lost all control. A clear message that the 'peasants and unclean masses' are pissed and are wielding pitchforks and torches in front of Congress and Wall Street.

Others are more inclined to political activism, and I have no desire to change their minds. Different tactics for different personalities.

I have spread this video to all I can.

It is not just one video. It is all good videos and articles.

Education and outreach - People.

I was having this discussion with that Misaki guy... who was getting down on the fact that many members have been seen with iPhones and iPads. I explained to him not to judge those that have chosen products like that, good reliable, well made communications equipment is a necessity for organizing and getting the word out. It's a tactical tool.

Absolutely, all social networks, email lists, friendly organizational sites should be aware and updated constantly.

I find it quite funny ( ironic ) that some of the tools used against the corrupt greedy bastards are some of their sweatshop products.
