As I thought about it later, I realized that this is why #AfghanistanTuesday is so important:
- by using Twitter to spread the word, we can extend our reach in time beyond a given single protest, to stimulate antiwar resistance BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER an event
- by using Twitter to spread the word, we can extend our reach in space beyond a given single protest, to stimulate antiwar resistance FAR BEYOND the neighborhood or city in which a particular event takes place
- what Twitter lacks in oomph! it more than makes up for in the ease with which a message can spread -- if we grease the wheels properly!
Just look, for example, at how quickly a heavily retweeted post can cascade around the world!
Think what this can mean, for example, in connection with the protests against NATO in Chicago!
Please reach out to ten friends today and get them involved in the weekly resistance to war on #AfghanistanTuesday.
