Hello All Humans! Time to make signs to awake your zombified citizens.

Also please make stickers, photocopies, emails, costumes, art, music, puppets. Speak now or never.

Grab your paintbrushes and signboards and create the world you wish.

Easy to make 100s of signs when they are simple:
Share whatever issues are important to you.

When you compose emails or post online; include

Foam core / sign board materials scraps (foam core is water proof) are free at:
sign shops or their dumpsters
art supply surplus stores
exhibition and conference center dumpsters 12-36 hours after a trade show.
garage sales closing down afternoons

Paint is free at garage sales
dump / recycling center / toxic donation stations

Brushes are cheap or free at:
garage sales and flea markets Cheap! Or use sponges as paint brushes.

Give signs to friends. Attach to your bike or car. Set them in public places.

Place them in high traffic areas.

Professionalism is stealth. If you fit in while posting, you won't be noticed.
Signs with the most professional / clean appearance stay up longer.
Post at vacant lots and cyclone fences near highway on/offramps.
Such locations catch eyeballs fresh from low density environments.
Signs are often mistaken for those of the contractor / lot owner.

Professional or non-descript attire.
Regardless of what you are doing, if you are unsure of local laws, you are best off being
fast and professional, putting your signs up inbetween waves of passing cars, to minimize the
chance that a concerned party will see your action. Look both ways before you...

If you are doing something on fences or lots which are less vacant,
you will want to be quick with your application of fasteners.

Coat hangers are fine for supply of wire. Or attach sign to coat hanger and hand it somewhere.
Bailing wire or thicker can be pre-bent into 4 inch staples which you pre-pierce through the sign
so that you simply walk along the sidewalk, pause while you fake like you're talking on a cellphone,
or better yet, converse with a friend, adjust your umbrella, while you deftly twist your wire ties together.

No wire ties? Simply wedge the sign between fence and support wire.

Make a hundred signs, cut some wire, and make it up as you go.

For those who wish to go further than signs, to take their actions forward to challenge corrupt gov't:

By the US Constitution you are entitled to redress your government for grievances.
In fact the US constitution encourages us to overthrow our government if it does not
represent us. Our founding fathers envisioned a revolution every 20 years or as necessary.
By the Geneva Convention you are required to resist genocide by any means necessary.
Either way you are covered in court. Dismissal is confident. But court takes time.
Therefore stealth is important. That and having a pleasant attitude if talking to a cop.

Not all cops understand the first ammendment, or the constitution, or the Geneva Convention.
If you wish you may arrest these cops for impersonating an officer: citizen's arrest.
But that will take some preparation. Do google search: study the "law(s) of sovereignty".
By studying the California penal and vehicle code (available @ DMV for several $)
you will learn that if an officer arrests you s/he must
bring you before a magistrate "Immediately, henceforth, and without delay".
A magistrate is available at SF City Hall 24/7. Officer must return you
to the spot s/he took you from and is responsible for any loss or damge
to your property or vehicle. Those who do not know their rights tend to sit in jail.

Best meanwhile not to be seen.

We are fortunate as Americans to have the First Ammendment, for now.

Use it or lose it.
