Open Letter To Our Readers

I sent this email out to Public Access key holders yesterday as NOAD Day is shortly upon us. Not all PublicAdCampaign readers have Public Access keys but its worth a mention on this site in case those same readers have resources of thier own and want to contribute to this global initiative.

Friends and Public Access Key Holders,

It's that time of year again when we collectively take to the streets and remove advertising across the globe to express our collective discontent with the use of our public spaces for commercial messaging. Last year 62 participants took to the streets and more than 300 advertisements were removed, and we want to keep that momentum goring. We hope that you will join us in this second year, or join us again, if you participated in 2014.

The task is easy, go out on November 27th and remove at least one advertisement. Don't forget to take a photograph of the empty bus shelter, phone booth, billboard, or whatever type of advertisement you have chosen to liberate. Share this image with the rest of us by posting it to the Tumblr or Facebook, sending it directly to the NOAD Gmail, or sharing it on social media with the hashtag #NOADday. Feel free to share your experience, write about why you participated, or anything else you find relevant to the project.

**For those of you in the United States, NOAD Day is the day after Thanksgiving. Shake off that sense of gluttony with some good old fashioned civil disobedience, have fun with your relatives by engaging the city you love, or just take a damn shot of whatever is still lying around and get out there and join the fight. You can spend the rest of your lazy friday basking in the knowledge that you participated in a growing community of people who demand better cities for a better citizen.

NOAD Day is an ongoing civil disobedience project begun in 2014 as an expression of global resistance to the use of our shared public spaces for advertising and commercial media. The goal of the project is to create a global voice of dissatisfaction against the use of our public spaces for a commercial media that is a detriment to our collective psyche. The more participation we have, the greater our voice, so take a minute this November 27th to join the party.

WHEN: NOVEMBER 27th (anytime)
