I have been saying this for a long time.. if you want people to learn the truth in a time of media blackouts and suppression then take it to the streets literally .. here is what I suggest take some wheat paste and find the stories in alternative media (like this indy) and print out the story and paste in in places where you will have a captive audience like at bus stops, smoking areas, elevators, public toilets or any place people have to stop and wait .. for instance the news about the British false flag operation in Basra or DynCorp crimes or Blackwater deployment. Of course keep the story clear, simply, short and to the point as well as documented. Imagine every other corner or wall plastered with non corporate spin. The truth is out there only waiting to be told. Remember we are in the middle of class war and your duty as a member of the underground is to get the word out!
