Top Pun in Action - Pictures
Top Pun, pictured to the far left, is only one
small slice of life on the Washington, D.C. Mall on Saturday, January 27,
2007, as hundreds of thousands of Americans gathered to protest the illegal
Iraq war. As you can see, Top Pun is fully equipped as a mobile
epicenter of peacemaking. Top Pun packs and displays eight different
peace buttons, with a total stock of over 600 buttons, utilizing many
obvious and not-so-obvious "pockets of resistance." The unique "hands
down the best" self-supporting three-sided protest sign floats like an
anarchist's halo, which provides the maximum overhead for the least effort.

with thousands of other Ohioans at the Ohio Statehouse. This rally was
organized by The Campaign to Protect Ohio's Future. Top Pun participated

Future is a coalition of over 370 health, human services, primary and secondary
education and higher education organizations, which calls on Ohio Legislators to
protect Ohio's most vulnerable citizens by restoring or adequately funding vital
services through a responsible budget that as its primary priority meets basic
human needs and providing sufficient funds to invest in Ohio's future. Top
