This is off the Hunter College branch of ISO..
Today's paper sale was decent, we sold about 10 copies of the socialist worker and received like about 6 people to sign the contact sheet and a few of them signed up for the petition on the Nader sheet.
Not bad but of course we can do better, thought this was a really cool idea to spread the world and get more people involved, sharing ideas and wotnot compared to jsut the regular emails and stuff, on here we can exchange wot works and wot doesn't for the sales and remind members of meetings and events in the local branches.
Peter has me calling up one of the people that signed the contact sheet, her name's Judy Wu...Will call her tomorrow afternoon and see if hse's read up on teh paper yet and see how she's holding up and keep an update on her...Sean has Dianne doing the same thing...(se's also a new member)....the sales can be intimidating of course...b/c people are in a hurry or that they don't want to be stopped in the middle of the sidewalk to be bothered with politics...but if you get them to express their opinion and have them be heard, it's a long shot to get them aboard and help fight with us in teh movment...obvioulsy different strategies go for different people...
....I'm going to type up a survey and see if it'll do any good for people's interest....and see wot happens from there...
There's going to be a Meeting on Saturday at Renaissance H.S. by Jackson Heights...which is on 81st St. and 37th Ave. take the V,G,R, or 7 train to Rooselvelt Ave. and walk a few blocks....not sure wot time though but will find out tomorrow and will post...we're having a group paper sale first though....will update later on..this took me a while to learn how to use the community section on the blog program so bear with me....
