9. Publicity




“Publicity, publicity, publicity is the greatest moral factor and force in our public life.” Attributed to Joseph Pulitzer (1847 - 1911)

You might be working in a small group, undercover or alone and may not want publicity. Alternatively you may want attention, reach out to people you want to influence and give your activities wider momentum. Here are a few fundamental ways of making your voice heard and building support for your campaign - via leafleting, working with the news media and using the Internet. They are not difficult to handle once you pick up the basics.
