Downloading "the white rose" COVID stickers on Telegram?

Recommended Posts

"The White Rose" has created heaps of COVID conspiracy memes that they courage people to print out and stick up around in public.

 

A lot of their stickers are shown on Instagram:

Otherwise it seems the only other way to get their memes is to join Telegram and visit their account. Apparently a file containing all of the memes is pinned to the top.... but I couldn't find it. I tried downloading Telegram for my computer but it said I had to download it on my phone. On my phone it wanted to have access to my phone's contacts, etc, which I denied. I had to get a code on my phone to activate the app. But I was unable to get Telegram on my computer running when I used the phone's code.

 

I think they should have had a website rather than forcing everyone to use Telegram.... that would make it much easier to download the file and they could have a gallery showing all of the memes as plain images that people could easily access.

 

So I'm wanting access to their file full of memes.....

Awesome! Thanks! BTW I used to be a professional programmer and it took me ages to figure out how to download it.... I had to click "DOWNLOAD NOW" but I was used to buttons like that involving ads....

 

Here's a direct link to the file:

I right-clicked on "DOWNLOAD NOW" and chose "Copy link address"

 

There are 100+ images in there.....

I've printed hundreds of these with a label printer. Brilliant stuff. Cheap and simple.

 

The way I do it is go here for example: https://telegra.ph/ENGLISH-horizontal---The-White-Rose-Stickers-04-13#DOWN

 

Just pick the one you want, right click on it, save image as, and save it to your computer desktop. This is one of my personal favourites: https://telegra.ph/file/57caded09743b19c4dc53.jpg

 

But if you want the whole archive, just use the zip file (as mentioned above by @metak88 ).

 

Also, be sure to join or at least preview the Telegram group. There are heaps of images posted there of actual stickers placed in real world locations. This gives great ideas if you're not sure where to stick them. https://t.me/s/jointhewhiterose

 

Enjoy.

The instagram link I gave in my original post is an easier way to see 80+ real world images. Like I said it was very problematic trying to join the Telegram group - it tried to make me share my contacts on my phone, etc. Though I was able to preview the Telegram group in my browser.

BTW it's interesting that your links are about Telegraph while White Rose is Telegram....

White Rose is on Telegram, but if you visit their website then click on the top right corner 'stickers' you will arrive at the Telegraph links. That's how I found it originally. As far as I know Telegraph is owned by Telegram anyway.

 

As for Telegram, you can control it completely. No phone number or contacts required to sync. It's all in the privacy settings and what permissions you don't allow. Just make a fake name and and anon username, but don't sync any contacts from phone. Plus set phone number to be viewable to no one.

What website do you mean? I can only find their Telegram page - and instagram....

I think it forced me to put in my phone number.... at least when I tried installing it on my Mac. But then the confirmation code didn't work (it keeps saying "Invalid code") - though it worked on my phone... 

I don't see why they are trying to force me to use Telegram when a normal website could be used.... and they could just put a Telegram link on the website.... (if someone wants to use Telegram)

A normal website link would take you to the stickers and photos within a couple of seconds.... using Telegram can make it take minutes - and still not work properly (like Telegram on my Mac).

You could try deleting the existing Telegram (see:  https://www.vpnmentor.com/blog/how-to-delete-your-telegram-account-permanently/ ) and start fresh from there.

Thanks for the link. Their stickers, telegram, and instagram pages should use that link rather than just the telegram link. Their website has a shorter address and is more user friendly. Now that I have the stickers I have no need to keep trying to get telegram working.

Which printer you using? I've got the Brother QL-700. Works perfect for me, but just curious what others use.

Hi I just wanted to read all of the stickers.... rather than print any out...

btw, two good insta viewers are greatfon or dumpor, so for those who don't have an instagram account or just want to be able to click and save pics you can view an open account, like:

I've noticed that someone has been going around my neighbourhood again recently, sticking these White Rose stickers everywhere. 👍

 

They don't seem to last long though.

I have one of those at work, or something like it anyway.

 

Just be warned, to anyone thinking of buying one of these printers, they may not use any ink, but you can only use Brother's own label roll media with them, which I don't find particularly cheap.

Hi @Grumpy Owl, I actually use the non-brother rolls with no issues. Very cheap and the quality is great. Yes, the Brother ones are approx $38 Australian dollars each, however the rolls I use are about $10 or $11 AUD each (with bulk discount, even less). When I first ordered the non-brother generics, I was worried the quality might be crap, but the quality is actually fantastic.
