1) Inform your MPs, MEPs, political parties, youth NGOs & partners etc. of the Action. Remember to lobby and send the Belarus invitation that you can find on www.jef.eu
2) Translate and print the JEF Europe Global Europe flyers that will be found on: itstimeforeurope.eu. You can also print the JEF Europe Manifesto.
3) In the morning/afternoon of 18th March choose a visible part of the city for activists to hand out flyers to citizens and speak to people about the upcoming elections, outlining the importance of a European foreign policy in the world stage. Only a strong Global Europe can address the democracy problems in Belarus and other parts of the world.
4) Some activists should be gagged with a cloth while handing out the flyers. If it’s possible, try to do this near a statue and gag the statue with a cloth as well. The other activists and the flyers can explain the significance of this to passers by.
Be creative! Gag telephone boxes, people, etc.
