FREE SPEECH DAY
October 13, 2004
October 13th, over a thousand 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
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 effort.
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.
We are asking for your help in posting signs and recruiting
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.
If you plan to post freeway banners, please
to let us know so that we can include your numbers in our media
outreach. If possible, please also take a digital photo of your banner and
email it to us on October 13th. We will add it to the visitorís gallery as a
resource for reporters and fellow freeway bloggers.
Please also read the How To and the frequently asked questions
sections to learn how to safely post your message, and for other important
