Effective activism against the FISA Amendments Act won’t be accomplished through just one big action – a national protest or a call-in campaign. Rather, it’s day after day small actions accumulated that will put on the pressure necessary to undo the damage of this terrible law.
Writing for the Repeal FISA blog is an important form of activism, as the general public is very poorly informed about this legislation. However, for this great collective effort to have a strong impact, we need to follow through and promote it effectively.
One easy thing to get the ball rolling is to use social promotion sites to help like-minded activists, and people who are politically receptive to find the Repeal FISA blog.
It’s elementary, I know, but important to remember. I’ve just submitted this site to StumbleUpon.com, and I plan to add my StumbleUpon thumbs up to all the blogs written by the people contributing here.
We can Digg each other’s articles. We can submit them to activist sites like Care2 as well. You all know the sites. Now, let’s use them for this important cause.
It’s the wisdom of beginning this collective site in the first place: Individually, we won’t be heard over the mainstream media’s misinformation. Together, we can make a stir.
