I think the most effective strategy would be a hunger strike.
Not only is it (relatively) painless, but with a handful of
us dying every day, RSI would have no choice but to capitulate
quickly. The hard part will be publicising that there are
thousands of us out here willing to die for...what was
the name of that format, again?

Power to the people!
