In the more than two years that I’ve been running Daily Anarchist I’ve never published a post calling for a targeted mass action by the community. Today I am changing that.
One of the greatest strengths of activist websites is the ability to organize and concentrate efforts towards goals that can only be achieved by mass action. As you may or may not know, several months ago I began rejecting the Dollar in my store section. I now only accept Bitcoin as payment for my anarchist flags.
A few months ago I mentioned to my flag dealer that I would eventually like to start paying for my flag shipments in Bitcoin. I didn’t expect him to jump on it as he’d likely never heard of Bitcoin before. Again, a few weeks ago, I told him that I would soon need to order another batch of flags and that I am only interested in paying in Bitcoins. Again, he was not interested.
Today, I have officially run out of the most popular selling flag, the 3′ x 5′ free-market anarchist flag, or standard yellow and black. I would very much like to purchase some more but am unwilling to do so with Dollars. I think it would be wonderful to send a message to my flag dealer that there is a large and growing community of people who use and support the Bitcoin economy.
If you could take a short amount of your time to send my dealer an email asking him to accept Bitcoin as payment for his goods it would mean a great deal to me. If successful I am sure it would also mean a great deal to those who will be eager to purchase such a flag in the future.
The individual to address your email is Jason. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mention Daily Anarchist in your email.
Thank you very much! Let us hope this works!
