Make your own signs and banners for GOTB

Make your own posters, signs and banners to bring to New York for GOTB. Group 133 just made four beautiful 12' banners last weekend with these slogans:

Sudan: Protect the People of Darfur
Ethiopia: Free All Prisoners of Conscience
Guatemala: Ni Una Mas! Stop Femicide
Yahoo! Don't Rat on Chinese Dissidents

We are also printing hundreds of posters for each demonstration.
