Longtime freedom activist Jim Babb is always looking for a way to knock another brick out of the anti-freedom wall and he's found it this time in the form of the vertical pylons inside the Archives Metrorail Station near the DC Superior Court.
An average of 18,606 Yellow and Green Line riders jostle through the station on a daily basis and Babb wants them to be confronted by giant "Jury Duty" posters that declare in bright red letters "Good Jurors Nullify Bad Laws!"
"I'm working on an ad campaign," Babb told prospective supporters. "If all goes as planned something similar to the attached graphic will appear on a pylon(s) inside the Archives or Judiciary Square station."
Funds are being raised at Jury Nullification Advertising on the gofundme.com crowdfunding site. The more money that's donated means the more ads that can be posted.
Babb calls the Metro display ads "affordable" and notes "We are getting a non-profit discount." A pylon ad can be displayed for four weeks for $1,000 plus setup and fees, and larger "diorama" ads for $1,228 plus processing fees are also a possibility.
"We are getting a non-profit discount," Babb reports. "That means the first pylon is almost paid for."
At this writing the GoFundMe site has raised $870 of a goal of $1,200 for one pylon and is also receiving donations in bitcoins.
