Good work, all.

One quesiton, offered in the spirit of constructive criticism--who was your audience for this banner, though? If it was BU students, is "support local struggle" a phrase that's going to resonate with them? I'm an activist and love my lefty rhetoric, but I also know that if I use it with people who don't share my values, I'm less likely to reach them. And that makes it harder for me to achieve my goals.

To be clear, I'm really glad this banner got hung! Just something to htink about for furture actions.
