Taking Action

There are lots of ways to take action - some are more in-your-face than others, some take more people, some are easier to organize, and some involve risking arrest. The only "musts" in organizing an action are: choose a target that makes sense (someone who can give you what you want); do your research (so you know what you're talking about and sound like it); and be aware of and prepared for any possible consequences. Below are some ideas for kinds of actions - mix and match them any way you want - your imagination is the limit when it comes to designing an action!
