Saturate D.C. and Everywhere, Part 2

ALL OUT for this powerful and compelling issue. Bush gives his State of the Union address Tuesday night. Listen to it and get ready to broadly agitate with the broadsheet in contrast. ALL OUT Wednesday morning, schools, subway stations, communities. Hold up the back page poster, shout out the first and last parts of the front page article! Discuss the paper, the articles, the graphics, the layout - take this issue out boldly. If you hear of people gathering to hear the speech, get the broasheet in that mix.

Thursday night there will be an orientation for all going to D.C. at the bookstore at 7 PM - be there to get super sharp for getting out 100,000 broadsheets and influence things on a grand scale.
