ID Resist

(1/61) > >>

Claire:
All right, guys. The Agitator forum is usually not my hangout. But it's time to strategize ...

We need to create an ID Resistance movement/network. It needs to be a resource center for actions people can take against Real ID and similar stuff. And it needs to break way out of the libertarian movement.

It needs to offer strategies (and an idea exchange) to people who think in terms of new-left style civil disobedience, quiet Mole-ish non-cooperation, and flat "Hell no, I won't" resistance. Big tent. Something for everybody, to encourage everybody to know they can fight this.

If Real ID isn't repealed, we need to have such a network in action before we're fatally ID'd and so it's already in action to help people make their decisions.

Many questions: What's the best way to do this and what are some resistance strategies that might appeal to people who wouldn't be caught on the same planet as suijurisfreeman or Delos?

Couple of thoughts: A "comply-in" where instead of bringing in the required four ID documents, they bring huge folders full of their grade school report cards, etc. and dawdle at the DMV counter going through it all. And for the more radical types, a kind of services directory of businesses that will help people who can't show ID.

Your thoughts?

What? You mean Suijuris and Delos are on THIS planet?  :blink:


My initial thoughts...
Do everything to call attention to it and how UN-AMERICAN it is (since everyone seems so patriotic now days). We know we won't get into the media, so we would have to get out and beat the streets. Flyers on cars, signs in lawns, T-shirts, bumperstickers. This stuff would have to be eye catching...Bar Codes, Uncle Sam tattooing numbers on citizens, "Don't worry, it only stings for the first few decades.", "Got ID?", Govt workers gossiping about citizen's private info, etc.

Stage protests outside DMVs to try to keep people from getting the IDs. Get lots of people to go in and take those stupid numbers they give you in the waiting room, really clog up the works..."opps, I forgot my papers" or other nuisances.

We definitely need to be networking, so that we won't be cut off from essentials. A directory of services is a good idea. There may have to be some kind of referral system for that to keep it safe guarded.

I'll have to chew on it more...

 

Joel:
Agitation is even less my field than yours, Claire.  But I agree that this is important.

Websites all over the place, fer shur.  In fact it would be interesting to open a site just for encouraging ideas, and advertise it on all the lefty forums.  They do incrementalism better than we do, and might come up with some delicious ideas for monkeywrenching.

Tim Osman had some interesting ideas a few months ago about guerilla advertising; this is a page we could swipe from the leftists.  Big signs on freeway overpasses, that sort of thing.

How about a rubber stamp (which can be used in all SORTS of places :-) with "Your papers please!" and maybe a swatstika or similar on it?

Something along those lines,  anyhow...

That'd get some agitation going,  for sure.

Misfit:
I like the same slogan everywhere thing, but watch the swatstikas...people see them, assume it's a neo-nazi group and throw it away without reading it. There is a white supremacist group here in Vegas putting up billboards and sticking flyers on cars. I could see people confusing the two.

I'm probably an agitator at heart...at least that's what all my friends and family would say. I just have an aversion to being shot at or involuntarily disappearing. :ph34r: How about extra large "Claire Wolfe Time" T-Shirts to wear over body armor? (I still think the wrist watch is a snazzy idea.)
