Scope and content
Series consists of records created by Adbusters Media Foundation during the following campaigns: Buy Nothing Day, First Things First Project, Media Carta, Kick It Over, Occupy Wall Street, Mindbombs, Boycott Divest Sanctions, Occupy Silicon Valley, Black Remembrance Day, and the White House Seige. Records include paper and born-digital materials such as digital graphics, photographs, design submissions, memes, press releases, emails, and moving image and audio "subvertisements."
The series has been arranged by the archivist into separate sub-series according to which advocacy campaign they derive from:
• Buy Nothing Day campaign records (sub-series 1).
• First Things First project records (sub-series 2).
• Kick It Over campaign records (sub-series 3).
• Occupy Wall Street campaign records (sub-series 4).
• Occupy Silicon Valley campaign records (sub-series 5).
• General campaign records (sub-series 6).
