In many countries around the world, October is the month to try to stop people to smoke under the name ‘stoptober’. This morning I got invited to a Facebook group called Aficionados Liberation Front, a group that was founded to troll the yearly anti-tobacco protest in front of the Intertabac trade show. Now the group is targeting the Stoptober movement, and you can join. How? See the copied message below:
“Dearly appreciated fellow partisans,
After a 2 year silence we feel the time is right for another playful guerilla action against the anti smoking lobby. This time we will attempt to hijack the hashtag #stoptober on facebook and instagram.
Plan of action: Share pictures of the cigars you smoke in october on your personal FB page and instagram account and add #stoptober as a comment. When posting on your FB page make sure the post is set to public. Wouldn’t it be fun if people clicked the hashtag all they’ll see is pictures of cigars being smoked? 😂 We feel we actually are with great enough numbers to pull this off but please also invite other aficionados to join us.
Hopefully we can be as successful as with our last playful guerilla action in 2015 against an anti-smoking group that was protesting at Intertabac that year.
As you may remember we hijacked their Facebook page by bombing it with selfies in which we enjoyed our beloved cigars. This is what their paged looked like: http://docdro.id/atjcZ7l
When you scroll through the 137 document keep in mind their page was suposed to be anti tobacco. 😂 They haven’t been protesting at Intertabac in 2016 en 2017. 😂
Let’s see if we can be just as successful.”
