On September 19, an army of marchers created by the fierce community of independent citizens will take over the streets and flood the social media. Our message: Give us our fair share of the collective wealth so that we can contribute to the society in solving problems and building a positive future. Give us Guaranteed Basic Income.
We got this idea from Polly M. Law, a Kingston-based artist, who created a project called Puny Protest. In the months following the 2016 election, she started creating a small doll head in resemblance of Donald Trump, placing them in various public places. She takes photos of them and posts on her social media with captions of protest. (Note: we are non-partisan. Everyone is welcome to join the march.)
Course of Action
- Register at Action Network.
- Become a member in Woodstock ’20 March for the Future Facebook group.
- Make figurines, puppets, drawings, or dolls of marchers.
- Place them in a public place, either at night on September 18th or morning of the 19th.
- Take photos.
- If you have an Instagram account, post them with a hashtag #woodstockbasicincomemarch
- If you’re on Facebook, post them in Woodstock ’20 March for the Future group. If you want your marchers to be discovered, note the location.
- You can email us the photo and location using our contact form, if you prefer.
- If you make them out of plastic or metal, please pick them up at the end of the day.
- If you make them out of natural material, you can leave them in place to decompose.
- If you want to make sure you’ll get back your marchers, or want your marchers to have company, choose one of the drop-off locations (we cannot guarantee 100% they won’t get lost, so if your work is valuable, just take a photo and do not leave it in place).
