write www.indymedia.org on dollars
For the last couple of months activists in the uk have been writing the URL on five pound notes. how about you do the same on dollars?
If you like the idea spread the word and re-post the idea every couple of weeks,(some international translations would be nice too)
ps. this is not an 'official' indymedia strategy it is my own idea and i am in no way connected to the formal indymedia organisation
I try to jam all my US currency with various crap. some of my favorites include little dialogue bubbles coming out of the prez pictures on the front. I try to include indymedia.org, corpwatch.org, zmag.org, and other good addresses. also good for jams are prepaid postage envelopes you get in unsolicited mail.
here are some, make up your own and start circulating:
are you happier now than you were before you earned
CAPITALISM DOES NOT EQUAL DEMOCRACY
YOUR DEMOCRACY HAS BEEN HIJACKED BY
dialogue bubbles from mouth of prez on front:
"You call THIS a democracy?!"
"Capitalism does not equal democracy."
"TV tells me who to be."
"You are my slave."
"Fuck democracy, Corporations rule!"
"Fuck democracy, Capitalism Rulez!!!"
"Corporations own your life."
"My media never lies."
"My government never lies."
a meaningful existence
a fulfilling life
