Proposal for Tuesday 12/13 General Assembly: Direct Action Painter’s Guild

Posted by & filed under Assemblies, Past Proposals.

For the Direct Action Painter’s Guild as a subgroup of Arts and Culture to create banners and signs for the #D17 Day of Action bearing messaging crafted in collaboration with members of the Media, Direct Action, Town Planning and PR working groups. The banners will be hung at key locations, some will be carried on poles by members of OWS.

Posters will be wheatpasted on construction walls around the city as well as glued to sign boards to be carried by members of OWS. Basic messaging will contain some variations on:

Occupy the Commons

What would Jesus Do?

Occupy Wall Street 2.0
