There are lots of folks who support the Occupy Wall Street movement in theory, but when it comes to actually getting up off the couch and heading down to an occupation for the long haul, only a handful of hardcore activists end up joining the ranks. Especially here in San Diego, and particularly when it rains or the temperature is anything less than 70 degrees. ---
San Diego actor and blogger Kevin Six gets that, and in an attempt to offer people a way to join the occupation "from the comfort of his/her own home," he's launched what he's calling the Occupy This Dollar movement and asking people to download a sticker that reads Occupy this dollar/ Please listen to all the people / Not just those who can afford it ; Thanks. He wants people to attach the sticker to a dollar bill and send the cash to their elected representatives (he's compiled a list of local contacts here).
Occupy This Dollar isn't quite a wild success just yet, but, with a healthy dose of humor on his side, Six says he's going to keep pushing the campaign:
Have you heard back from anyone who's received one of the dollars?
What do you like about the medium of money?
What do you think the representatives will end up doing with the dollars they receive in the mail?
Can you point me to a list of some of your other projects?
Briefly: I was once an up-and-comer in the San Diego arts and culture scene. I was a nonprofit executive director, a board member and lead the San Diego Arts and Culture Commission. A very long time ago, I worked for Kathy Najimy in New Image Teen Theatre (a political theatre troupe attached to San Diego Planned Parenthood). Recently, I have been a published playwright and an actor whom you might have seen in a local infertility commercial, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and other things.
