NEW LOITERERS EVENT
THE DATE: Saturday, 22nd August
THE TIME: Noon to 1pm
THE PLACE: The US Consulate , 3 Regent Terrace, Edinburgh EH75BW
THE EVENT: The protest banner project
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? Turn up with a banner, be prepared to be photographed for our new loiterers project.
A BANNER? Yes a banner, but make it a slogan you think will be applicable in 20 to 30 years OR will be relevant for the next 20 -30 years.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THE PHOTO? Create a living library of banners and protests online.
WHY? Well as it becomes increasingly harder to demonstrate in public space (like outside the new US Embassy under construction in London) we wanted to make a resource library of banners and slogans, so people can look through, find a protest or banner that expresses their protest and we will link our site to the US Embassy so you can mail them a picture of your protest directly for the next 20-30 years.
Think of a slogan, make a banner, come, it should take a few minutes of your time.
As always it is nice if people bring something to share with out protestors. Strawberries are nice.
