Here's the email I sent out to volunteers. I need more people. Email me at

Daly City - Can you do a protest on Monday - between 8 or 8:30 and 11am or so?

I am planning a protest outside the SAME banks that started the whole thing last week when they called the cops.

They are across the street from the Westlake shopping center in Daly City.

I would like to set up another protest, but I cannot join it directly, as they have targeted me and built a file on me.

Instead, I'd like to help organize a team of 3-4 people to go back and hand out pamphlets on Monday morning. The Daly City BART is just 5-8 min walk from there. I can help the printing, bring flyers and legal info, and point the way, but once the protest starts I will have to go elsewhere. I will be doing a protest in Santa Clara instead, with another set of volunteers.

It's quite safe, we've already established that the sidewalk is not private property and that people have the right to be there. But it will piss them off, and make them even more worried if they see a whole bunch of new faces and a more organized group!!

This time, you could get some great video too.

Anyone up for a repeat prformance on Monday morning?

We will need to fill 3-4 roles:

One or two pamphleteers, in suits. (J? are you available?)
One person to help with printing and act as a witness and hold personal belongings/bags while the protest happens
One or two people to do video, photos and act as legal observers.
One person to do a "sandwich board" or picket sign, I have some great slogan ideas.

Ideas for slogans for a sign:

"Do I look too big too fail in this outfit?

Help me shrink!

Move Your Money"

on sone side and on the other:



Ok, reply if interested. If we get enough people I will help organize, meet you there and provide instructions and material and get your started.

Keep in mind: If you offer to volunteer, the team and I will depend on you. If you don't show up we may have to cancel the whole protest because we are missing a key role (they're all key!). So please if you volunteer, MEAN IT and be there.

Once I have enough people, I will get back to you with a "green light" email tonight.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
