An artivist working independently from his living room has made a non-aligned, #TogetherWeWin Facebook art meme with the message “VOTE HUMAN” go viral to over 270,000 Facebook news feeds. This includes crowdfunded reach to many thousands of people well outside the notorious usual Facebook left-of-centre “bubble”. He is now seeking further sponsorship to turn 270,000 views into millions of views, with mass reach to people who DON’T normally see anti-Tory posts on their news feeds. [Sponsorship link…]

Over 2,000 Facebook users have shared the post, which is still growing at the time of writing. Nearly 22,000 Facebook users have clicked somewhere on the post.
The artivist-organiser, who is currently choosing to remain anonymous claiming “#GE17 is about the spontaneous eruption of a leaderless mass social movement to #StopTheTories“, now seeks further sponsorship to turn 270,000 views into millions of views.
