Mobile Phones and Activism
As part of the event a declaration was written. Here is the "SMS" 160 character version:
"Mobile phones serve Communication. Communication serves Humanity. Humanity should serve Humanity. Mobile phones: tech 4 people changing the world."
You can read the complete and amazing declaration, in which we declare that communications technology is a right derived from the inalienable right of freedom expression, and make other bold statements.
SFT can and should make use of mobile technology more. From sending simple text messages reminders out to get people to come to rallys, coordinating large teams of people during actions, or creating our own propaganda through ringtones.
