I started a new swap-bot swap: Occupy our Future.
Here is the description:
Most of us have heard about the Occupy Wall Street movement at this point.
There are critiques that the movement has not identified demands. Here is a chance to create your own dreams and hence demands.
What future would you like to see for the United States of America? What could we do with the money that Wall Street, other corporate executives, and elites are hoarding for themselves?
You will have two partners. I ask you to make each a handmade reflection to these questions. This is an international swap. The focus is on U.S. politics and its influence on international politics, which is why the entire planet has an opinion.
Please remember the handmade, reflective element. No rants without handmade, reflective elements.
If you send me a photo of what you receive or swap, I will do my best to post it to my blog http://www.canimailthis.wordpress.com.
I will also angel those that do not receive anything from their partner. This has not been a problem in the past.
I would love folks that don’t usually participate in swap-bot to consider participating.
As a handmade sign at the Occupy Spokane demonstration basically stated a week ago:
Art will make the difference.

I wrote this post last night, and by morning my swap had been cancelled. I guess that it was too political. I will not protest but I still want to do it. Anyone interested in doing an exchange? If so, let me know. I haven’t figured out how to organize it. I am open to ideas.
More to follow…

Apparently the swap is still on. Not sure why. I thought that Swap-bot had cancelled it. You can learn more about it here.
