Joystick It To The Man: Video Game Protest


Posted October 8, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

Why Is There A Dreamcast Controller At This PAX  2009 Booth?

If you've been following Jake "Muh Lord" Gaskill's excellent multi-part article on the coming potentially game changing Supreme Court gaming case, you may be filled with impotent rage over the rhetorical beatdown your favorite hobby is getting right now. The time has come to regain your potency, citizen, and actually do something.

Video Game Voters has come up with a great way to both make your voice heard and get rid of outdated hardware. The political action group is urging supporters of the first amendment to scrounge up their broken joysticks and controllers, mark them with a pro First Amendment message and mail them to Senator Leeland Yee's office. Yee wrote the law thats constitutionality will soon be decided, so he needs to hear our voices.

The full directions for the protest are below the cut.

Step 1: Gather your old or broken video game controllers and write on them, "I believe in the First Amendment."

Step 2: Put them in a box, take a picture and submit it to VGVN using the form on the website above.

Step 3: Seal up the box, take it to the post office and mail it to Senator Yee. Here's his address:

The Honorable Leland Yee
455 Golden Gate Avenue, Suite 14200
San Francisco, CA 94102

Step 4: Give yourself a high-five, and then tell your friends to join in this mass protest.
