Early in the morning of May Day, Beloit College radicals dropped two banners. One expressed solidarity with the striking teachers in Arizona, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Colorado, and elsewhere, and the other promoted the struggle against prison slavery. This is a modest action, but it is easily reproducible. It is also a good example of what one can do to take action in similar contexts as ours (i.e small, isolated colleges and universities with little connection to the larger left or anti-authoritarian movements). All the materials we used for this were:
-Plastic bottles, some filled with small rocks
-A measuring tape
Banner drops are a time-tested method for expressing important ideas, utilize them even if you can’t go to a march or action.
