Campaign Trick #3 – Use Your Imagination

It is important for successful campaigning to use your imagination. David Nicholl, in order to highlight the abuses at Guantanamo Bay ran the London Marathon in 2005 in an orange jumpsuit with a ball and chain attached. This was high profile and several weeks before the general election that year. His feat raised cash and awareness which was a double whammy.

Campaign Trick #1 – Keep It Simple

It is important in campaigning not to ignore the simple things. A letter to your MP and others can make a difference. It is though important not to be fobbed off by a lousy reply and where necessary to write back to them. If you allow anger to turn to apathy you haven’t a chance. Amnesty activists have seen prisoners released and policies changed because they chose to write a letter so it can work.
