(If I can get the cash together I might bring a film SLR out)
If you're so inclined, it might be a good idea for everyone to read up on the recent (March 2, 2011) developments re: Bradley Manning, as they are highly relevant to the focus of Saturday's protest.
Would it be possible for me to get you to help me in planning a rally for the freedom of information in Austin, TX. Totally new to this whole thing but seeing that there isn't anything going on in Austin I wanna get it started by staging the first rally
I would like to get it set-up for sometime towards the end of the month
The first stage of planning is choosing a date and location. If there is nothing organized in your area yet, you should probably set the date a good way out, because you'll need the in-between time to spread the word. Once you have a date set you can submit it to Wikileaks Central and they will add it to the event roster on their website (submit by emailing a short synopsis and a link to the event page to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
As far as spreading the word once the details are in order, obviously there is word-of-mouth, which is very effective; you could also make informational fliers and post them in public venues (e.g. public message boards, light poles in areas with heavy pedestrian traffic, etc.) If you're a member of any local online communities, you can also spread the word there; the politics section of the forums on your area's Craigslist site, for example.
Basically, be creative.
As I'm sure you've noticed, we have a Dallas event coming up on Saturday; if it's not too far, you could always join us for this one, to get your feet wet and observe a protest IRL before jumping in. No pressure, of course, just so you know you're welcome.
My fellow anon invited me to this rally, and I've lurked for 3+ years. I'm glad to finally get out into the open and join my brethren in protesting the silence of the public.
I've followed the WikiLeaks story closely, and I'm going to plan out something friday and put it into action saturday. I'll post more as I know what our plan is.
Can't wait to see my fellow anons!
See you guys tomorrow.
Good luck all! I wish you the best of luck! Don't get arrested!
If any1 wants anything printed like flyers or anything. Send me a link or pm me for my email info, and I'll get them printed tonight.
I do actually, I'm working on it right now.
I'll post it in a few.
Yea! I will be able to make it. Starting on fliers as we speak.
And since it came up, while Dallas PD has a very clean record with protesters... rookies happen. That's about the only thing they have a clean record for, so lets not jump down peoples throats. DPD screw ups are in the national news every few weeks.
If you could make some prints of these, I'd appreciate it.
EDIT: The previous link had several typos in it that I fixed.

I'm really sorry but i wont be able to go, my dad wont let me go.
That's ok some day you can make up for it by forcing your children to go to one ;P
Well I hope by that time things have changed
Things always change... but I think the world will forever more need, Anonymous.

That is the latest planning rally for FOI.
