ADBUSTERS TACTICAL BRIEFING #1 September 12, 2017
“What the hell do all these blackspots mean?”
“I don’t know, but they’re making me uneasy . . .”
The sixth anniversary of Occupy Wall Street is approaching, and let’s see now . . . record-breaking storms and wildfires rage . . . fascists march in the streets . . . the 1% keeps getting richer . . . nuclear war looms for the first time in a generation. The corpo-capitalist doomsday machine has never been so dangerous — or more nakedly exposed.
On Sunday September 17, let a million blackspots bloom! It’s an act of aesthetic terror . . . something strange in the wind . . . an anti-logo for nihilistic times. We print them off on sticker paper . . . or just carry a big tagging marker . . . we fly blackspot flags, wear blackspot sneakers . . . a blackspot meme starts to circulate online . . . they turn up on news boxes, street advertisements, bank windows, ATMs, foreheads . . .
On September 17, we start obliterating the old world with the mark of a new world to come.
for the wild,
The Blackspot Collective
