Support Princeton Proposition 8
We believe that California's Proposition 8 is illegal and immoral. The use of a state-wide referendum to limit the rights of a minority group is the very sort of action the that the constitution ought to defend against. We hope to point out the danger and absurdity of that proposition by advocating for our own "Princeton Proposition 8" which will ban freshmen from walking on campus sidewalks. We hope to parallel the language and actions of the real Prop 8 as much as possible, as we believe the injustice speaks for itself and needs no exaggeration. We will be careful not to turn this into an attack on any particular group or organization, instead choosing to focus on the moral, legal, and logical reasons why Proposition 8 should be overturned.

To kick-off the satirical campaign, we will begin postering this Tuesday night and will have a group demonstrating at a prominent campus location (TBD) from 9:30-5 every day, starting this Thursday. We will also be writing letters to The Daily Princetonian explaining our position and advocating for Princeton Prop 8. There will be a petition for students in favor of "Princeton Proposition 8" (and thus against California Proposition 8.)
We are looking for students who share our sentiments who will be willing to help us in any of the following ways:
Signing up for brief shifts to support our day-long demonstrations
Signing the petition
Hang paper posters (a daily task - they will be removed because we are not an official student organization)
Creating posters and signs for the demonstrations
Working with music, film, t-shirts, and other artistic media to get our point across
Writing letters in support of our cause to the campus publications and student government
