Declare Your Independence Campaign Action

Flyering events are happening in many locations leading up to the July 4th holiday. 

In NYC, Rose and Nina flyered at D’Agostino on West 110th Street on Friday, June 27.  Mort, Rollie, and Nina flyered at Gristedes at University Place in Greenwich Village on Saturday afternoon.  Chuck, Bruce, and Bernadette were at Fairway Market on the Upper West Side of Manhattan on Saturday at noon.

Chuck reports: I was spending the weekend in New York City, and I was looking forward to distributing “Don’t Do Koch” flyers as part of the “Declare Your Independence From the Koch Brothers” campaign.  I went with Bernadette to Fairway Market on Broadway between 74th and 75th Streets on Saturday, June 28, at high noon.  In a short time, Bruce joined us.  It was a sunny day.  It was a good flyering session. People were very receptive to our presence. Many people asked for additional flyers to take for friends. I have been distributing “Don’t Do Koch” flyers since the campaign started two and a half years ago, and I have never experienced the number of people who came up to me and wanted to thank us for doing this today.  I found that people where most receptive to my street hawking when I said, “Don’t support the Koch brothers because they don’t support us.”  “The Koch brothers spend more money on climate change denial than Exxon Mobil; the Koch brothers want to privatize social security; and then don’t want workers to have the right to organize.”  Bernadette, Bruce and I have different styles in the way we flyer, and that works well.
