It is a campaign designed to encourage voting to the most apathetic in our society; 18—24 year olds.
The project imagines what headlines could look like if the Conservative Party are re-elected at the 2020 general election. By dissecting cabinet positions, and bills they have proposed/passed, we show potential voters what the government is currently doing and where this trend could lead to upon re-election. Through agitating, educating and hopefully organising we aim to rally the youth to vote.
To order a newspaper (wrapped in one of three letterpresses) please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The price is £20.20.
We must vote, we must rally the non-voters, apathy can no longer be an option, we must engage.
IN TIMES OF AUSTERITY, WE MUST STILL SEEK PROSPERITY.
We can no longer be betrayed, for too long the norm has been dictated by the conglomerates, the privatised and the establishment.
They act on a false mandate and twist and squirm to ensure it never slips from their grasp.
What is imposed on us is drip-fed, we must open our eyes rather than have the wool pulled over them.
WE HAVE BEEN QUIET AS THE CUT IS DEEPENED.
They try to distort and drown and defeat our words - but we stand on the shoulders of giants.
They have robbed us. We are willing to give whereas they only take.
Their cohort isn't real, the businesses do not exist, the only real collective are the active.
We must be aware of the exploits. We must observe the media. We must care for our rights when there are so many wrongs.
Raise the alarm. For what they have imposed must lead us to fight for peace.
They don't understand and we are misunderstood—either way we stand.
START THE CONVERSATION. DEMAND THE DEBATE. DISCUSS THE ISSUES.
Our potential is only to be realised. Bless the nationalised. Call for change.
Be the cause and demand the affect.
Through actions we will realise our strength. In unity we will fight.
Campaign and protest and picket and network and produce and blast and support and march and react and understand.
The voice of the youth is now needed to protect and prevent, to stand and cry, to unite and act. As the voice of the people is the voice of the loud.
From local, to community, to grass roots, to activists, to the group, to society, to the public, to the national, to the government, to the collective…
POWER TO THE PEOPLE, POWER TO THE MASSES!
