Hello, fellow Wisconsin Miniprotesters. Join us in participating in a form of curbside activism that delivers more message from less people. These boards will provide a wealth of resources, including how to make your own miniprotest on your favorite topic and where you can spread the word about it. This will also be a place to let your creative juices flow, creating clever sayings and cutting sign inscriptions that put all the damning pieces together for motorists to stew over as they sit in traffic.
We will Occupy Commute Routes, be the TRUTH TROOPS that will counteract millions in Citizens United cash with effective use of people power, progressive passion, and honorable presentation. Here's how miniprotesting works:
Unlike a generalized rally, miniprotesting uses a focused, running message conveyed through three main 30" x 40" signs displayed at eye level for motorists, each a block apart. These main signs are held waist high, while the folks surrounding them hold traditional overhead signs on the same theme. This presentation harkens back to the old Burma Shave roadside ads. Here's what we showed motorists in Santa Rosa, Cal. on tax day:
Corner #1: Isn't it Time to End the GOP's Tax Favoritism for the 1%?
Corner #2: GOP Still Backs Overseas Tax Havens, Loopholes Carved Out by Lobbyists
Corner #3: Exxon/Mobil, GE, B of A Pay ZERO Taxes. Those Billions Lost Could Fund Schools, Jobs, Roads, Police
Here's another main sign inscription set I'm readying for Wisconsin:
Corner #1: Isn't it BLUE BLOOD WELFARE When the Ryan Budget Drops the Top Tax Tier Rate by 14.6%?
Corner #2: Ryan Budget Gives Every Millionaire $146,000 For Each Million He Makes Every Year
Corner #3: The Romney/Ryan Ticket's Support of Ryan Budget Proves They're Leading the 1% Privilege Posse
