Tactical Briefing #4

What are the big ideas, the radical transformations – the metamemes – without which a viable future is unthinkable?

For twenty years the culture jammer movement has been building momentum for a cultural revolution that will topple consumerism and spark a new way of living. Now Adbusters and our worldwide network of activists (86,000+ and growing) is calling for a Carnivalesque Rebellion this November. Our aim is to create a sudden, unexpected moment of truth – a mass reversal of perspective; a global mindshift – from which the corporate/consumerist forces never fully recover.

Tactical Briefing:

Blackspot

In the weeks leading up to rebellion, we will release a MANIFESTO, tentatively called THE METAMEME MANIFESTO, that will go pandemic and spread from email to website and zine to word-of-mouth. What do you think should be the gist of this manifesto? What are our demands? What are the big ideas, the radical transformations – the metamemes – without which a viable future is unthinkable? Shoot from the hip to: [email protected].


Inspiration:

Tony Judt

Tony Judt passed away August 6. He was a bold meme warrior who inspired generations of social activists with the way he lived, the fearless way he fought for his beliefs and then for the courageous way he died. Check out his work at NYBooks.com, Guardian.co.uk and NYTimes.com and be inspired one more time.


Action:

For the next two weeks, take these two visual memes and circulate them widely. Post them on Twitter, Facebook and blogs or print out the PDFs and paste them to bulletin boards and street corners.
