You want people to make the connection and here’s where you can see that firsthand. This cuts out the middle man of a leaflet that tells people to watch Earthlings and where instead of you approaching people, they approach you.
Quite possibly the easiest form of activism and something that every activist should experience doing. Something that you can do any time, any place with just two people.
1 You will need Earthlings on your laptop or a documentary of your choice to make a difference.
2 A mask (pref neutral). This is to attract attention to you so that people will see what you are showing and to remain anonymous so that you are representing any member of society, furthermore to keep Earthlings the focus by not speaking to encourage the viewer to investigate and draw on their own reactions alone.
3 Any public space i.e. the underground, where you can draw on the idea of a shared experience and where intimacy can bring about connections.
4 A disclaimer, a label in clear bold writing somewhere on the laptop to say ‘WARNING: this footage contains graphic content. Footage taken from Earthlings.com
