call for participation! reading of gene sharp's list of 198 methods of nonviolent action

all are invited to participate in a collaborative audio-visual reading of gene sharp's list of 198 methods of nonviolent action to be shared on youtube, and i invite your participation! would like to include folks of all ages, accents, nationalities, geographies, etc. in the piece.

if you would be interested in contributing a few lines, please choose your favorite 10 or 20 actions (or more) from the list - preferably consecutive - and videotape yourself reading them in any way you like, facing or back to the camera, in silhouette or profile, with any background or in any setting you choose. please read the number of the action as well as any subheadings/titles/text so that i can line everything up in the correct order. please send your quicktime or mp4 video file via yousendit or other filesharing service to alyce (at) alycesantoro (dot) com (please do not send files as email attachments, as i'm on internet with very limited bandwidth and will need to schedule downloads of large files!). BETTER YET: please post videos to this project's DEDICATED FACEBOOK PAGE.

please let me know how you'd like your name to appear in the credits...or if you'd prefer to remain anonymous. please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions! the moment we have all 198 actions on tape, i will edit them down into a single video. thank you so much for your participation!!
