Summer of Love PSA Campaign
The Office of Fatherland Defense is proud to anounce its Operation
Summer of Love Public Service Announcement campaign.
As part of our effort to rebrand and reorganize our efforts in Defending
Freedom, providing Security to Americans, and rooting out Terror
in the Fatherland, the OFD is looking to graphic designers, agencies
and artists to communicate several concepts via a low intensity
Posters may be 2 colors::
and red (or blue)
live print area is: 21" X34"
trim size 22" X35"
make seperations if you use 2 colors
submissions requests and RFPs to firstname.lastname@example.org
You also need to email Director Ed "lalo" Mar to get the
required OFD logo to insert on your poster.
Please choose an idea from one of the campaign ideas below or make
up your own. We strongly emphasize that you make up your own.. Your
goal is complex. It's to help citizens realise there are ways to
defeat terror, reduce The Fear, question the authority of insane
government policies, unveil coporate crime and stop the War on Civil
Liberties at home.
We are suggesting these ideas as ones that speak volumes to us.
As an Agent or Officer in the OFD you can take any stance you like
as long as it folows our core mission in Defending Freedom, providing
Security to Americans, and rooting out Terror in the Fatherland
. The OFD will choose the best ten campaigns and print the results
in a newsprint poster format. They will be distributed via Select
or Lumpen magazine or be given away at Summer of Love Events. If
our partnership comes thru we will also do limited run screen printed
posters to be exhbited at the Buddy space, next to Heaven.
1. Snitch Culture bad
Children are taught to snitch on their pot smoking parents and to
turn in their friends. Our sister agency , the FBI, has received
over 500,000 tips related to terrorists since 9/11. We think this
is an alarming sign of pervasavie Snitch culture.We fear the citizens
are policing themselves a bit too much. We doubt many of the tips
are related to the Saudi Arabian hijackers, but we'll never know..
Its a secret.
Communicate the idea that Americans everywhere are on the alert
watching their fellow citizens to "keep them in line".
This distrust in your neighbor is a negative behavior. Fight fear
Nuclear bombs are bad. Stop
the terror of Nuclear Proliferation. The US is the leading maker
and distributer of weapons of mass destruction/. The US is also
making "smart nukes" to kill terrorists. Huh? We think
the "collateral damge" associated to this new nuke is
a crime to humanity and should be stopped. Nuclear weapons are dangerous
and uneccessary. Lets ban Nukes.
War On Corporate Terror
The recent Enron, Anderson, World Comm trading and accounting scandals
have cost Americans Billions and will cost us even more. Wall Street
is ripping off Main Street. We have to wage war on the Coporados
that are fucking the little guy over. Coporate fraud is spreading
insecurity and their economic terror must be checked.
Challenge: Create a poster to encourage citizens to Stop Corporate
Criminals or hihglight the failure of Corporations to tell the truth.
Big Brother is watching, listening, and reading you.
Remind citiznes that everything they say and do is being recorded
and digested by the Coporate Industrial Credit/Spying agency complex.
the Echelon/ Magic lantern/NSA/CIA/FBI/ INS/VISA/American Express
alliance brings us a Minority Report style total surveillance world..
Do we hide or destroy this system? (see #9)5. Join The Crusades!
Show how the American War on Terror is a redressing of the an old
idea. Show how the America:
Fights Evil Doers in faraway lands.
Defends Christianity from Mongrel religions
you get it, donthca?
6. War Of Terrorism
The War on terrorism is a War of Terrorism
The US is the leading worldwide user of terrorist tactics. From
killing Native Americans with primitive biological warfare (small
pox) to dropping the A-bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki to carpet
and cluster bombing 500,000 non combatants durng the Viet Nam war
in Laos (a neighboring neutral country) to assasinating elected
leaders in South America, the US is a leading terrorist State. read
ter·ror Pronunciation Key (trr)
1. Intense, overpowering fear. See Synonyms at fear.
2. One that instills intense fear: a rabid dog that became the terror
of the neighborhood.
3. The ability to instill intense fear: the terror of jackboots
pounding down the street.
4. Violence committed or threatened by a group to intimidate or
coerce a population, as for military or political purposes.
5. Informal. An annoying or intolerable pest: that little terror
of a child.
ter·ror·ism Pronunciation Key (tr-rzm)
The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person
or an organized group against people or property with the intention
of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for
ideological or political reasons.
7. We are all Illegal
Explore the reasons why humans can't cross borders but capital and
products can. The system of Immigration Control is being revolutionized
by the War on Terror. Institutionalization of racism and restricting
human movement is a strategy to maintain and strengthen corporate
power in a global system defended by the US led Empire. As people
in the west are electing facist governments during a period of economic
decline , blaming immigrants for our reduced standards of living,
racism has become the scapegoat and immigration policy is the enforcer.
By ignoring the real problem: the rest of the world is the West's
sweatshop, Citizens fail to realize their fate is controlled by
the forces of globalization: transnational corporations. These very
same elites buy elections and governments to promote their agendas
and exploit the world's resources at any cost. Note: The Office
of fFatherland Defense can get preachy.
Know your rights!
The ACLU has a campaign to let Americans know what rights they have
left: promote a public campign for peopel to be aware of their rights..
The pamphlet -- Know Your Rights: What to Do If Youre
Stopped by the Police, the FBI, the INS or the Customs Service
-- contains information for citizens and non-citizens alike and
is intended for those who feel at risk of becoming innocent targets
of a government investigation in the wake of the September 11 terrorist
The ACLU created the Know Your Rights pamphlets because we
are concerned that many people, especially non-citizens, are not
fully aware of their rights when being questioned or detained by
the government, said Anthony D. Romero, Executive Director
of the ACLU.

9. CCTV BAD
Surveillance cameras CCTV are Invasive and Video surveillance will
have a chilling effect on public life. The growing presence of public
cameras will bring subtle but profound changes to the character
of our public spaces.
"When citizens are being watched by the authorities - or aware
they might be watched at any time - they are more self-conscious
and less free-wheeling. As syndicated columnist Jacob Sullum has
pointed out, "knowing that you are being watched by armed
government agents tends to put a damper on things. You don't want
to offend them or otherwise call attention to yourself."
Eventually, he warns, "people may learn to be careful about
the books and periodicals they read in public, avoiding titles that
might alarm unseen observers. They may also put more thought into
how they dress, lest they look like terrorists, gang members, druggies
or hookers." Indeed, the studies of cameras in Britain
found that people deemed to be "out of time and place"
with the surroundings were subjected to prolonged surveillance.
Advocating the destruction or elimantion of CCTV is a good idea.
Do you like being watched? Then do something about it... more info>>
