Calling all Boston-area librarians! Last week's protest was healthy
indeed, with passersby making the connection to the
right-across-the-street Boston Public Library. But I think I was the only
librarian there.... we need You to help speak for libraries!
If you're not near Boston, there are many other protests going at points
around the globe; to find (or start) one near you, or if you don't know
much about Dmitry, the DMCA, and the cases involved and want to learn
more, see freesklyarov.org.
Spread the word--forward mercilessly--fight for the right to read--and

Subject: [DMITRY-BOSTON] [DB-ANNOUNCE] Protest Thursday! BBQ Saturday!
This THURSDAY, Sept 6th, we'll have our second protest at the Boston
Public Library. Last week's protest went extremely well, with a surge in
attendance due to a number of factors; I encourage everyone to print out
(their favorite) flyers from
and post them around your school, place of work, etc before Thursday.
The 'livefree2' series is best for 'normal' places, use 'flyer7' around
excitable people (perhaps college students).
Possibly MORE IMPORTANTLY, on SATURDAY (sept 8) from 1-4pm we will be
having a combination cookout/organizing meeting/letter-writing session (in
conjunction with the national plans). Please RSVP ASAP to
cananian@... so I know how much food to get, etc, but feel free to
show up at the last minute even if you don't RSVP (but please don't do
this). The letter-writing component is *extremely important* in regard to
getting our voice heard outside the area, and I'd like to think Great
Things Will Happen and Fantastic Ideas Will Be Born at the organizing side
of things too. And food! Did I mention food?
Details of both events are at http://boston.freesklyarov.org.
I'm still looking for help postering college campuses and your local
community, as well as writing letters to newspapers and all sorts of other
fun stuff. Write me (cananian@...) for more info.
