Protesting Tactics 101: #DoRandomStuff


By 1776

In response to President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration, Democrats, liberals, and progressives across the world have blocked roads, gummed up airports, and urged people to delete Uber, because nothing says solidarity with immigrants and refugees like haphazard acts of civil disobedience and misdirected outrage. Here are some other things you can do to show the world how mad you are at Trump.

Run at a flock of geese

While Trump has been vilifying Islamic refugees, geese have remained decidedly casual about it all. Find a flock of geese and disrupt their apathy by running directly at them, preferably while shouting something incoherent.

Get a tattoo of Roy Orbison on your ass.

This is bound to confuse and bewilder and possibly offend everyone you come in contact with, and that’s how you make change happen in the world.

Chug a gallon of milk in under an hour.

This signals virtue. Bonus virtue if you can do it without vomiting.

Pimp slap your father with baby powder.

He’s had it coming for a while now. Plus, patriarchy.

Boycott spoons for a day

Because spoons have contributed to all of this. Somehow. I just know they have.

These are just a few ways you can let everyone know how upset you are with Trump’s immigration policies. Feel free to come up with your own #DoRandomStuff protest on social media. Just remember to meet the following criteria:

1. The logical relationship between the act and Trump’s immigration policies must be tenuous or nonexistent.
2. It should be done in the most self-indulgent and attention-grabbing way possible.
3. Ideally, it should serve to offend, confuse, and/or inconvenience random people and organizations who have no obvious connection to Trump’s executive order.

Let this be a clarion call for justice in our times.
