Rough, depressing day so I designed some messaging as a fuck you to the system that's killing me
It's got little pull tabs full of links. Obviously if you use it (you're welcome to) you should replace the bottom 2 links with local groups of your choice
(and I know you're skeptical but actually our DSA chapter, specifically, rules)
I'm glad I checked before I printed these. I was a fool and got #EarthStrike's URL wrong. Here's the fixed version in case anyone wants to use it!
Gonna hang some of these up this afternoon
Nice! I was suspecting this would happen
As soon as one person took a tab from the flyer, other people seemed to take it as "permission" to take one too. One day later and another tab is already gone!
Honestly if I hadn't seen one gone when I went up yesterday I was thinking about tearing one off myself to achieve the same effect...
Just checked on my flyers again:
The one on the bus stop has 4 tabs taken!! I may put more at other stops...
The one downtown was ripped off. I can be pessimistic and mourn the fact that it was removed - or I can be realistic and hope that one or two were taken beforehand - or I can be optimistic and say that technically that means *all* of the tabs were taken!
And the one at the community library is still at 2. But, someone took Green Wizardry home!
The last batch of pull-tab flyers went very well, so I replaced the Earth Strike link with https://www.shareable.net/how-to-share/ and changed the order of things because I'm indecisive, and now I've got 10 more to put up around town!
Again, this idea and even this exact design (replacing the Birmingham stuff with stuff local to you ofc) are free for everyone to use. It's really surprising how quickly tabs get taken, and knowing that each one is a person who's interested in activism and who now has access to the resources to get started is awesome
