Not Gonna Lie: I’m Proud Of Our Banner

September 1, 2011

Spent today shopping for an East Bay Solidarity Network sign-making party, agonizing for an embarrassingly long time over what color (and heft) of banner fabric to get, and what color felt for the letters, and later (with William) what font to use. But now it’s finished — grommets and all — and looks F%*@IN’ SICK, if I do say so myself. :)

Between printing the letters, cutting them out, tracing them onto the white felt, and then cutting out the felt and gluing the letters onto the banner, our core organizers also called all the people on our phone tree to mobilize for the next action, coming up on Wednesday. Cooperating on mini-projects over weeks and months is cultivating a beautiful ease among us. We crack each other up; we respect each others’ opinions. We brew each other tea. (Louise, if you’re reading this: we will miss you!)

Next week, after the action, I’ll share photos of the fight-specific signs we made. Right now it’s time to sleep the deep, delicious sleep of the DIY-satisfied.

    Love the banner. Just checked out SeaSol’s site as well, and noticed they have a “donate” page–wonder if that would take much to set up for all y’all…? http://seasol.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=43&Itemid=31

    Thanks Jeff! I guess we figured no one would donate, especially not until we get a couple wins under our belt. But I’ll ask folks at the meeting and see what they think.
