On April 18, 2007, Open Source Resistance hosted a gathering in LA. Musicians, artists, and ordinary people
gathered in support of a simple message: speak up to defend the things that matter to you. The concert
planned to end the evening was broken up by police.
If They stop you from speaking, theyíre killing freedom. If you just canít be bothered to speak, freedom will
die just the same.
Wake up and give a shit.
To use Open Source Resistance, you must submit one of the following:
Content: You care about something: global
warming, election fraud, book banning, civil rights.
Youíve made an issue ad, a cool Flash movie, a bumper
sticker, an audio file. Send it to me.
Platforms: You have a website, a small
press, a job at the local copy center. Youíre a DJ or a
librarian or a mailroom guy at a big company. You want
to help get subversive stuff out into the world and have
access to some sort of communication platform.
Send it to me.
If your content or platform passes the exacting standards of the selection committee (meaning, if I think itís cool
and Iím not so swamped with regular life that I donít get to it) Iíll set up the match, and push the content out over
Thatís all you have to do. Send me content or a platform, and someday soon you might just find your message
inserted in a major newspaper, or posted somewhere for the world to see.
Itís resistance made available to everyone.
