Be sure to put "MMM"
in the email subject-title so that it is not mistaken for spam and
People can use them by downloading them,
adapting them, printing them out, and photocopying them. Use
scissors to cut
out the incorrect city and event info. Then make one copy of it. On
use a thin black marker, or a black pen, to write in your city's MMM
event date, time, location, and contact info.
The corrected flyer can then be photocopied in bulk. Copy on
white photocopy paper, or on cheap pastel-colored photocopy paper for
greater effect. Colored paper looks great even if only black text and
graphics is used on it by the photocopy machine. 100 or 200 copies is
good for posting around town.
The last week or two before an MMM event is probably the most
important time to keep MMM flyers up around town and campus.
Bulletin boards at colleges are great places. As are the usual
telephone poles around town. :)
Look for telephone poles already being used so as not to tick off the
authorities too much. If you get stopped by the police, act ignorant,
and say that you thought it was legal since there were so many flyers
already posted on the telephone pole. This worked for me once. :) And
don't cover up other event flyers that are still current.
Some of your flyers will get torn down, so it is good to repost some
more the last week before the MMM.
A staple gun is great for telephone poles. Tacks, or a
opened up, are great for bulletin boards.
If you don't already have an email
address that you can to post on a flyer, I suggest adding a free Yahoo
address. Yahoo Mail provides 100 megabytes of free email storage.
Plus it is the
one of the highest-rated free web-based email services. It also has
free virus scanning of attachments.
And you can use an alias with Yahoo Mail if you want more privacy. http://mail.yahoo.com
Analog videotapes of cannabis events
can be converted to digital video for streaming on the web, or for
CDs and DVDs. A video capture card on a computer can convert the
video to digital video. Then you can post that digital video on the
web, or have
others post it on the web. Alternatively, you can have others convert
videotape to digital video. Check out these websites for email
can use to request help: http://crrh.org/hemptv/index2.html
and http://www.pot-tv.net and http://www.hempevolution.org
The above websites have previously
requested MMM video in any form. So you may be able to mail or
videotape, digital video clips, etc.. They can put video clips and
video on the web, or on CDs and DVDs.
To avoid being mistakenly deleted as
spam please put GMM
or MMM in the subject-title of any GMM email sent to the
addresses below. Also, substitute @ for "at" in the email
addresses below. "at" stops spambots

Feb. 9, 2004.
Hello dear Legalizers from all over the World,
most of you won't know me, and i want to apologize to use dana's
adress list. But i think its the right thing. I am Martin, and i do some
stuff in the hemp museum berlin ( http://www.hanfmuseum.de/
). Some of
you will know the Hanf Parade which happens yearly in Berlin, this
organisation is located here as well. I do the "computer stuff" here.
What i want to ask you is if you can send me audio-visual material from
your Legalize Action, MMM, discussion session and all this?
I have the possibility to digitalize tapes if you do not have it in
digital. I can send it digitalized back to you.
All i want this is for my projects:
First, audio content will be used in my internet radio. It is heavily
drug related, but it is still beta. You can check it out at http://r.hanfplantage.de/ .
Second, i think nearly everyone of you who organise a MMM will have
from it. The video content will be cutted by me to make a worldwide MMM
Further details can be mailed with me, otherwise if someone of you do
have an instant messenger like ICQ or jabber ( http://www.jabber.org/
) you can contact me instantly:
Since i want to put the audio/video content on the net, be sure that
can be done - pictures are cool too, but have copyrights sometimes.
For big video data on the net i'm on the search for "free traffic", but
if you do have a dsl connection, you can help too.
