It's difficult to go about.
As someone further up started, this board and the people posting information are good on the awareness side of it.
But those who put up actual plans, dates, strategies are only harming the general idea.
By making their plans public they are giving themselves to the enemy.
I think the best thing to do is to keep posting and circulating information about the rampant injusticies, then letting it soak in.
When the right time comes to act, we will know in our guts--I would keep a network of like-minded folks around me, but keep any actual plans off the internet or phone lines.

Oh and also, I'd like to say that those going on and on posting about how we should overthrow the government and have violent opposition aren't the ones that concern the eyes and ears. The ones they are concerned about are the ones preaching peace, love, unity, and the power of one. I hope the eyes and ears know that, by being paranoid about things everyone should know anyway, they are being just as naive as the people shouting angrily about revolution.
At this point, the self appointed status quo police (i.e. the brainwashed masses) do just fine handling the real threats, while giving the governments and the hidden hands exactly what they want by being afraid of the naive radicals.
I think it's a little bit of both.
Peaceful people don't shoot bullets.
Some problems can only end with led.
Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls and those walls need to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and curse the Marines; you have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives and that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use then as the backbone of a life trying to defend something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you," and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest that you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to

Seeing that there is not much of a way to reach any number of masses without communication technology, perhaps we should all work on sending each other snail mail versions of some sort of cypher that we can all use to speak openly with on the internet? Perhaps a series of cyphers so they dont know what combination we are using, just to make it harder to crack, then, we'll have made the important snail mail connections we need in order to do further communications with more intricate details of any said plan.
just an idea.
