Arraignment Outreach
« on: September 04, 2010, 10:29:05 PM »
Thanks to Richard and Meg, we now have outreach fliers explaining the benefits of refusing to take a plea bargain!

NOW VERSION 2.0 for both National and NH!  Download here:
http://freekeene.com/2011/03/03/new-flyer-dont-take-the-plea-deal-now-for-nh-and-national/

What is done at the arraignment outreach, each morning:
Hand out "Don't take the plea deal" fliers to the victims of state aggression before arraignments.  Arrive at the city building at 8:00am, head up to the 2nd floor, offer fliers to all who are already up there waiting, then go back to the lobby and offer fliers to everyone coming in for court.  Continue until 9:00 to reach those who are running a little late.  You'll need the fliers and a partner is nice to have, so please use this forum thread to get organized.

Thanx also to you, Ian, whose essay I merely adapted.
These things seldom attain the expectation of my conception, but this exceeds it!  The graphics are sublime!
"No revolutionary movement is complete without its poetical expression. If such a movement has caught hold of the imagination of the masses, they will seek a vent in song for the aspirations, the fears and hopes, the loves and hatreds engendered by the struggle. Until the movement is marked by the joyous, defiant, singing of revolutionary songs, it lacks one of the most distinct marks of a popular revolutionary movement; it is a dogma of a few, and not the faith of the multitude."  — James Connolly
____

...the freedom songs are the soul of the movement. They are more than just incantations of clever phrases designed to invigorate a campaign . . .  We sing the freedom songs today for the same reason the slaves sang them, because we too are in bondage and the songs add hope to our determination that 'We shall overcome...  We shall overcome someday.' — Martin Luther King

"Newer and Bluer Meanies have been sighted within the vicinity ...There's only one way to go ... Singing!"  —John Lennon

Very nice. Where do I send the silver? :)

Other than saying loud noises is a victimless crime, I like it.

huzzah!  the first thing i thought when i was finished with them was "Sam A. Robrin" isn't gonna like it.  boy was i wrong! :)

i made a colored version, if anyone is inspired to get some printed, i'd gladly fold them and hand them out.

also, i'd like to make a more generic version to post online so people outside of keene can participate in this outreach in their hometowns.  if someone could go through this and note where/what changes can be made, i am a little too busy to take care of that myself.  so, just message me with suggestions, and i'll update the files.  thanks ya'll!

I love UPrinting.com (they did the PorcFest Maps)

Lets start a chip-in and order 1000

Last time I checked tri-fold brochures were 10% off!

http://www.uprinting.com/print/Brochures.html

Looks like 1000, 8.5"x11", 100lb matte card stock (no gloss finish), tri-fold, 4 color front & back, 3-day turn-around, 5-day ground shipping would cost $220 (or less).

Did I mention I love UPrinting?

A. Would we consider not putting a Uprinting order in until Wednesday's outreach is completed? Meaning we wouldn't want to order a bunch if outreach goes poorly for some reason.

B. To whoever wants to organize the cost collection. I'm in for $100

C. I think the brochure lacks incentive for people to plead not-guilty besides "clogging the system". Would be great if it had things like "It's your right to have a trial - and the State can't wait for you to waive that right" and "Often, prosecutors don't come prepared enough to trial" and "Prosecutors sometimes drop charges or offer even better deals closer to trial" and "waiting for trial means you don't have to pay today". There are reasons besides slowing the system to take your case to trial.

D. Despite C, B still applies.

Good suggestions from Coconut - if Meg wants to implement them somehow, it's up-to-her.

That's misquoted.  It's the 100lb paper that is cheaper (you wouldn't want a trifold on cardstock), and going glossy puts the price just above $200.  I'm in for $50.
