HERE ARE SOME INTERESTING ITEMS TO CHECK-OUT AND ACT ON. PLEASE DO!                                                      I'M MAKING SOME ARM BANDS FOR US RIGHT NOW! 

1.] Ask people to wear black armbands or pin-on ribbons. The black (for mourning) background with the number 3,000 in white, could be a powerful statement of sorrow and of protest in the days after that grim milestone is reached. A sample of what this can look like is pictured above. The idea is to not only wear a ribbon and/or armband yourself but to distribute these in large quantities to as many people as possible -- in shopping districts, on campuses, in front of government buildings, at busy mass transit stops, wherever there are people in motion. Many will be moved to have an armband or ribbon pinned on them. As they go about their daily routines, they will bear witness to the anger more and more people feel. This kind of easy-to-do activity can help bring new people into motion. Often, that small first step -- voting in a local referendum around the war, signing a postcard to a member of Congress, or wearing a black ribbon -- will help people think about what else they can do to help end the occupation.

2.] House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has publicly committed to cutting student loan interest rates in half within the first 100 hours of the new Congress.In order to make sure this happens we need the support of the rest of Congress. Please ask your friends to help with this campaign by contacting their representative.To spread the word, click on this link or paste it into your web browser:  http://www.uspirg.org/action/higher-education/taf?id4=ES
