I see in the comments...

... that people are really upset and want to do something.

We all do. I still think sending postcards to your reps, and phoning them, is important. Visit their office if you possibly can. Throw town hall meetings if that can be arranged, too.

I see people calling for general strikes on 9/11 or on October 17th.

I don't know how big a demo you'd need to make people pay attention. I've often thought it would be most effective to demonstrate outside the buildings of the major broadcasters rather than at government buildings.

My ideal demo would be a massively-huge funeral-type event, everyone dressed somberly, everyone silent, just holding up a simple sign saying something like, "No more."
