i'd love to see a print-team working group doing a map that would sell. the oil wars idea sounds great as do the
but, what the indy arts group is looking into is doing a more illustrative/artistic heavy project, which can be done
with limited funds and have a long shelf life. clamor's "make art not war" poster series is one model we were
discussing, as well as the No RNC poster collective's "Our City, Our Streets" book.
an idea that's been tossed around is a "who's who" of something. eg. who's who of the neo-cons, who's who of
war profiteers, etc.
i think a who's who of war profiteers would have lots of appeal. the "People's Guide to the RNC" would be one
source of info. I think Left Turn also had something on them
let me know what ya'll think.
