In Washington DC, our small affinity group of 5-10 people has begun
work on the Don't Just Vote campaign. Besides contributing to getting
the website up and running we've been brainstorming various ideas for
direct action and public redecorating campaigns to make the Don't Just
Vote - Get Active campaign visible. One thing we've done is gathered
up dozens of campaign posters that have been left scattered around the
city from the failed Kucinich and Dean campaigns and reclaimed them
by screen printing and spray painting new messages on the reverse
sides, some blurry pictures are linked in the image gallery. The plan is
to take them back out to the streets where we found them and hang
them up around the city with their new messages.

A print version of the call-to-action is in the works to help spread the
word about the Don't Just Vote campaign, and the plan so far is to have
these newspapers printed by April 20. Individuals, Collectives, and local
contacts will be able to order these in bulk through this website for
distribution to their friends, neighbors, communities and fellow
activists. We want to get this idea out as far and wide as possible, and
hope that people will help with effort. Along with the call to action we
hope to include other information on the campaign including
suggestions on what types of direct actions and other projects people are
connecting to the Don't Just Vote - Get Active campaign. Also, we are
planning to mass produce a poster that will also be available in bulk
quantities, for putting up all over the country.

Right now we need people everywhere to help build this website and
make it as useful a tool as possible. We imagine a propganada gallery
full of various graphics, designs, articles, flyers and posters to be printed
and re-produced. So, if you or your group is working on anything please
send it in to be posted, and also we encourage groups to provide an
update on what their working on in relation to this project, so this
website can used as a networking and communication tool.

Expect more updates soon, and please post your own so we can all stay
connected!
