- Make events
- some ideas are below: How to get money for your event
Offset flyer printing may be the cheapest bulk printing of small flyers. Single-color flyers are cheaper. One can get 10,000 small 2-sided flyers for less than $50 (?) if single color, and $100 (?) if multi-color.
Using pastel-color paper costs almost the same as white paper, and it adds color without having to pay for multi-color flyers. Use single-color ink like blue or green. This also adds color but is still a single-color flyer.

How to get money for your event
- make a smoke-in/hemp market with things you can easily produce and sell: hemp bakery, roasted hemp seeds..
- do an open music contest ( http://www.openmusiccontest.org/ ), sell some t-shirts and do a party..

- do a charity event, some party

- sponsors like banners on webpages or to see their logo, get announced in the context and so on
- get support from an non-profit organization, foundations
- rosa-luxemburg stiftung (.de), ..

- did you know that Rock against Racism (70/80ies) was co-organized by the Legalize Scene ? RAR exists till today
Organizing your event
You can usually march on the sidewalks without permits or insurance.
You might want to ask at your city building how to reserve a place and day for an assembly, too. While there you might ask about marching. Getting march permits on the street itself is harder. Some cities require insurance or other fees for event assemblies and/or marches on the street. Many times this is illegal on their part and an infringement of your first amendment rights.
There are usually some lawyers who will answer some questions for free about any of this. Call a few and see what they say. They usually can give you a little time to answer some questions. Ask around to find lawyers who handle first amendment stuff for free. They sometimes sue cities for monetary damages and they sometimes win!
You can sometimes get free posters from Dana Beal (or other people linked from his page).
Use full-size flyers (9 by 11 inch standard photocopies) on telephone poles and in friendly stores.
A great tool that can get a lot of people to rallies are some 4-way small flyers that you can cut four out of 9 by 11 inch photocopies. Post the small flyers on bulletin boards at universities, etc.. Be sure to be clear about the date, time, place, contact info, and purpose of the event on the flyers.
A web address on the flyers and posters is especially helpful in showing people that this is a serious event. Blogs are free web pages that you can easily create. If you can do type email, then you can easily type in a blog. Blogger.com is Google's free site. LiveJournal.com is another great free blogging site. They both allow you to post photos, graphics, flyers, etc..
Before and after your events upload lots of photos, posters, flyers, banners, etc. to Facebook and other pages. Click the "Upload image/file" link in the left column of this page. Upload to wikipedia, wikimedia, and Flickr too. All are free places to post your images. Choose the most free licenses at those places so that the images can be used by others so that the word gets out about GMM.
