27+ Ways You Can Beat the NDAA
- Why do you care? Make a public statement (post on your website, blog, facebook, or tweet about the #NDAAResistance)
- Paper petition (get signatures from friends and family, and send a copy to PANDA, P.O. Box 653, Bowling Green, OH 43402. This will help you pressure your local politicians.)
- Print Flyers (post 5 or 10 flyers in your neighborhood, take pictures, and post them online for others to copy)
- Hold a small protest (three friends + a sign + a videocamera = awesome. Send the video to firstname.lastname@example.org/panda and we’ll publish it!)
- Call in to a radio/tv show (2 minutes could educate a thousand people)
- Do a short YouTube video (get a friend, do it by yourself, or rent a studio. Here are 5 examples: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 That’s how we got started.)
- Add a banner to your website (Like the “This Site is a Belligerent Act” premade banners/ads here)
- Create an image/meme, and spread it. (Or try these)
- Create a song/piece of art, or parody an existing one to spread the Resistance.
- Change your profile picture on facebook/twitter to catch your friend’s attention (grab one here, or make your own)
- Follow your “favorite” politician with a videocamera and get them to say something stupid about the NDAA, then send it to us and we’ll take it viral. Like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFh0nIYNAyY)
- Connect and friend other people in the Resistance
- Speak at a city council meeting (bring a friend to record it!) Examples here, here, here, here, here, here, and here (you can find meeting schedules for city council online, usually you can speak for three minutes).
- Have a moment of silence, and say why (shutting down facebook/twitter/website/actual speech for a day. Unique way to draw attention to the NDAA)
- Put something on your car (a sticker, spray paint, or window paint can make your car into a rolling billboard)
- Donate $5 a month (Help us keep our servers online, and produce more pamphlets)
- Do a quick podcast on the NDAA (www.podbean.com/ is a great place to start)
- Get a couple tshirts (perhaps that say “what is the NDAA?“) and wear them around town.
- Attend a local fair with flyers, or a petition, and educate fairgoers on the NDAA.
- Attend a local fair/event with a “Free Speech Wall” (whiteboard with markers works great), and then educate attendees on how the NDAA stifles free speech in a fun way.
- Shame your congressman (post on your congressman’s facebook/twitter and ask them why they voted for the NDAA)
- Talk to a candidate running for office in your town about the NDAA.
- Stand on a street corner and hand out NDAA cards, take a selfie and send it to us
- Set up a facebook page/twitter account (share information about the NDAA in an easy way “Miami NDAA Resistance” or Stop NDAA Now are great examples.. Give us a heads-up and we’ll promote it.)
- Post a picture of you with a sign on why you’re part of the resistance (you’ve seen these before, create one yourself)
- Start a website (If you’re feeling really ambitious, start your own website or group to fight the NDAA online, or take over Google.)
- Take back your town (if you’re really ready to step up, go to alternetmedia.com/panda/takeback and start taking back your city, to make a real, lasting change.)
- Have fun! Saving your city doesn’t have to be boring, and it shouldn’t be. Invite friends over for beer, pizza, and show a movie/video clips about the NDAA, do a fun parody of pop culture, or march down the street like you own the place.
- Come chat with us! Everything you post on the resist feed can inspire others to do the same, creating a swarm politicians can’t ignore.
- Print out this guide, and give it to a friend to repeat the process.
Together, we are the Resistance. Please post what you’re doing to defeat the NDAA below.
