Sitting mat for direct actions

Whether you meet others or choose to do it alone, you can at any time take out the seating mat, unfold it somewhere where you want to sit down in a silent protest against neoliberalism to make the consequences of this ideology visible. By improving the comfort of sitting down, you can extend the action time and thus increase the impact.


Are you tired of neoliberalism’s compulsion for efficiency whipping you around all day long, running after buses for trains or standing cramped on public transport, like a cow on its way to the slaughterhouse? Are you tired of everything you have to achieve, how successful you have to be, all the choices you’ve been given that instead of giving you an exhilarating feeling of happiness and freedom rather weigh you down? Are you tired of constantly downloading new apps, discovering that your password doesn’t work, sitting in endless phone queues or communicating with robots?

If you don’t know what to do with your rebellious streak, don’t despair. Sitting mat for sit-down actions is the equipment you need!


Foldable sitting mat, fits well in a fairly large trouser pocket.


  1. Choose a social issue you are passionate about.
  2. Ask yourself: Are the politicians doing enough to solve the problem?
  3. If the answer is no, choose a suitable place of action.
  4. Equip yourself according to the conditions and make your way to the action site in a quiet manner.
  5. Unfold the sitting mat and make yourself comfortable.
  6. Feel free to invite some collaborators with you.

If you want to make the action of protest a little livelier, the sitting mat can indeed be combined well with the Power Blower. Or you can do as the farmers of Karnataka in India did one day in 1992. After being overlooked and overheard by politicians and authorities for years, they gathered in a neat mob of 50,000 persons outside the government offices and laughed for a whole day, starting in the morning until evening. A week later the government collapsed.
