The Backbone Campaign, online at BackboneCampaign.org, has great ideas for props and banners and puppets.  They've even been holding training camps, teaching things like action planning, light projection, song and dance flash mobs, guerilla theatre, fundraising, giant banner construction and deployment -- including with helium balloons, blockades, rappelling, etc.  I recommend contacting them or organizing a similar effort.

Maybe TPP opposition can be a catalyst for a resurgence of Occupy Harrisonburg and Occupy Everywhere.  We are going to have to get organized and we are going to have to occupy.  We need to keep moving the money out of the big banks.  We need to advance worker ownership and community power.  We need to become independent of the outrageously corrupt political party that we're supposed to hate and the outrageously corrupt political party that we're supposed to like.  We need to stop cheering when President Obama gives speeches opposing his own policies.  I can't recall once demanding that President Bush give a speech.  We always wanted something more substantive than that.

There are places to get involved:

Also, at RootsAction.org, where I work, there is a page at which 20,000 people have already emailed Congress and the president against the TPP, and you should too.  Make your voice heard here.

This free trade agreement is not free and not about trade, and we're definitely not in agreement!
