Freeway Free Speech Day: Driving America to Think
October 13, 2004
October 13th, hundreds of activists nationwide will post signs
critical of the Bush Administration on area freeways, reaching
millions of voters in states from Maine to California. The Freeway
Blogger has posted more than 2000 such signs over the last year.
In addition to coordinating activists, we will launch a nationwide
media campaign to promote the fact that hundreds (if not thousands)
of these signs are going up across America on the same day, and to
highlight this newest, and oldest, form of civic dialog. We
anticipate wide-spread news coverage about this powerful grassroots
The ultimate goal is to increase voter turnout and defeat Bush.
We also hope to stimulate the democratic process in the way it was
originally intended--with each citizen being able to express their
political views directly to their fellow citizen.

activists, especially in the following states: Arizona, Arkansas,
Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota,
Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio,
Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, West
Virginia, and Wisconsin.
