#OpAssange - guide to citizen activism

Greetings to all people everywhere

Over the next week events may take a course, which for some may seem unacceptable,

Completely unacceptable

Of course

We refer to the supreme court hearing regarding the european arrest warrant for Julian Assange, journalist and publisher of Wikileaks, this February first and second.

If the supreme court upholds the extradition of Julian Assange, may we offer a number of legal ways in which supporters of Julian and Wikileaks can show their support

Along with the outcome of the supreme court hearing , the passage of sopa and pipa should also be held in distain as governments seek to throttle the last vestiges of freedom from the internet we all know and love so dearly.

Firstly may we suggest revisiting Op Paperstorm.
In this operation which has been highly successful in past protests,
activist use facsimile message to protest by sending messages directly to politicians and law makers.

Make leaflets and paste them in prominent locations in your community

Spray paint your message so all can see on government buildings

Make adhesive stickers and place them again in prominent spaces

Second , we suggest flash mobs.

Flash mobs have been a way in which large numbers of people from all walks of life are able to protest against injustices by turning up at locations where their presence can be most felt.

Spend the day at the largest furniture store in your area, make your self comfortable and let your children run wild. Try out the beds, the comfortable chairs, in fact try everything.

If visiting a Swiss furniture outlet is not your thing, book a test ride in a Swiss car, see what it red lines at, and for how long.

The main purpose is to agitate.

Organize your people

Network, communicate

Use all of the social media to great a wave of activesm

Make your feelings known as to the gross injustices that take place in the name of justice




Stand as one be divided by zero

Make this an event to remember

As in the not to distant future, activism in the name of free speech will be deemed a crime punishable by citizenship removal and indefinite detention
