We urge you to join us December 8-10th for a weekend of action in supportof GI Resistance and GI Rights!
Plan a support event in your community.
Decide on what type of activity to organize. Choose a date, time and place. Make a plan to get the word out and involve other groups, communities and people.
Organize a vigil, demonstration, human billboard, non-violent direct action, procession, leafleting, etc in your community.
Organize a delegation to visit your local Congressional Representative or the Canadian Consulate or visit a US embassy or consulate if you are outside the US
This could also involve a letter writing camping, delivering letters or having many people sign a joint letter. Writing letters to the editor is another idea.
This could be a video screening of Sir, no Sir or other relevant videos, speakers, performers, food, drink and discussion.
