Hi! I'm writing to let you know about a little anti-war performance I didwith my family over Thanksgiving weekend. I heard about this lady on theradio doing it (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5021524)and we copied it.We took toy soldiers and put a label on them that says "bring me home fromIraq for the holidays" and we placed them all over stores -- in Best Buy andthe supermarket - and then customers or employees find them on top ofgranola bars or iPods, etc.The idea is to confront consumers for a brief moment -- to ask them to thinkabout Bush's approach (failure!) and what they're going to do about it. Italso offers an encouragement to other activists, citizens of conscience, andmilitary families, in that someone is doing something to bring soldiershome!So, it's extremely easy (and relatively cheap) to do! Look for toy soldiersat your local dollar, toy, or department store, glue them on to some paper,and write/print "Bring Me Home from Iraq for the Holidays," then walk aroundstores and leave them (in)conspicuously on shelves!We're psyched, we wanna get it in blogs and news media and work a snowballeffect and have this protest-performance-action sweep the nation, and be thenext Cindy Sheehan anti-war strategy.I've started a blog to keep track of where these are popping up.
