Yesterday I created a facebook group of the same name. The idea is to have a place where people can get together and design material suitable for getting the Occupy message out to the general public by handing out in the street or door dropping.
This group is a meeting point for people who want to see the message of the Occupy movement available in printed form that can be used as a point of first contact to awaken more of the 99% to join us.
The Internet is ripe with information about Occupy, but what of those people who are not yet skilled enough to access it? What we need is a range of leaflets that have been designed to get the message across to the general public.
Creating such resources is phase 1.
Next is having ready to use as is or to customize for your local situation leaflets available for anyone to download.
Just a few decades ago it was people that controlled printing presses that had great political power. Now everyone with even a cheap computer printer has a small scale printing press! If we can get thousands of people to print just hundreds of leaflets each we get to reach hundreds of thousands of people who would really appreciate that wakeup call. Repeat for a few iterations and we reach billions.
Join this group and help make this dream come true!
We now have a wikki.
This is the place to work on and store source material for leaflets and viewable samples that can be referenced from back here.
It runs under the Twiki software which is a very powerful Open Source Wikki system written in Perl.
Its all a bit vanilla at the moment, help to make it look good is most welcome!
