We need to organize to be active and effective. Be it a neighborhood group, or work-place generated group, a student activist group, or mosque/church/synagogue, it's simple enough to get it up and running!

There's been tremendous new interest in political activism as the natural response to the world-wide Governmental "bailouts" of mega-corporations; Israel's savaging attacks on Gaza; the BART police murder of an unarmed citizen; and the gross international negligence in prioritizing the cessation of genocidal wars, starvation, water-borne diseases, and literally billions of homeless, poverty-stricken masses. Votestrike.com has received numerous requests for information on how to set up a VoteStrike group to assist the willing to become THE ABLE.

HOW TO BUILD A LOCAL VOTE STRIKE GROUP

We need to organize to be active and effective. Be it a neighborhood group, or work-place generated group, a student activist group, or mosque/church/synagogue, it's simple enough to get it up and running!

Organize a meeting - contact local teachers unions, community groups, political and religious groups.

Produce - leaflets, send emails, create Facebook groups and ask organizations to help publicize the meetings.

Call A Protest - Invite informed speakers, sympathetic organizations, unions groups.

Use the media - The local paper, radio and TV are hungry for news and controversy. Media contacts can be found here- http://www.votestrike.com/media_contacts

PERMITS AND LEGAL ISSUES

Citizen protests seeking a redress of grievances from their government are constitutionally guaranteed provided any assembly is peaceful and law-abiding. Permits are not required.

However, public rallies involving PA systems, invited guest speakers, use of electrical supply, and use of public space do require a permit. Without a permit, property can be confiscated and people arrested. Remember, many jurisdictions require a two-week lead time or more for the issuance of public site use or street march permits.
