Announcing Two New Sites
Miniprotesting HQ in Northern California
and the key swing state of Wisconsin
These will be the regional hubs for miniprotests both on an independent basis for anyone as well as for groups and organizations looking to put specific messaging on the streets on a grand (yet geographically scattered) scale. They are set up as meetup groups where any member can post an event on their calendars. If you are in these regions, or just want to see the infrastructure model, check them out. And if you have a specific messaging agenda that you're trying to spread, please join up and post on their Discussion Boards and click the option of being notified for new posts on that topic.

Compliment Overall Strategies
Apart from the political campaigns for individual politicians, there are dozens of progressive groups focusing on policies, petitions, legislation, and reshaping political dialog. For these entities, miniprotesting is a perfect fit for the intricacy of their messaging needs and smaller numbers. Here are a few miniprotesting main sign inscription sets that would be ideal for these groups.
With the recent Republican filibuster of the DISCLOSE Act in the US Senate, corporate cash unleashed by the Citizens United Supreme Court decision will remain secret, obscuring the puppet strings on GOP legislators.
Move to Amend is trying to turn the tide on this corporate infringement on the spirit and function of democracy. Here is a miniprotesting main sign set for them:
Corner #1: Don't Want America RUN BY AND FOR THE 1%? Move to Amend
Corner #2: Mad That Billionaire Koch Brothers Can Pledge $400 Million to Romney Campaign? Move to Amend
Corner #3: Join Move to Amend. Amend the Constitution so Money is No Longer Speech, Corporations Not Considered People

Another worthy cause is that of National Nurses Unitied which is trying to put a leash on the rampant nanosecond speculation on Wall Street, adding volatility and sucking money out of the system from the rest of us. The NNU is pushing for a Financial Transaction Tax which would curb some of the nanosecond speculation and add to our federal budget. Here's a sign set for that:
Corner #1: Join National Nurses United in their Call for a Financial Transaction Tax on Wall St.
Corner #2: The Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) Would Generate $350 Billion From the Bubble Bursters
Corner #3: Curb Runaway Nanosecond Speculation on Wall St. with FTT
But there are always enough lies and hypocrisy to taint the Republican brand in general, starting with the CORPservative leadership:
Corner #1: Boehner Thinks GOP = FFH: Freedom From History
