EMAIL/PHONE ACTION! Contact Consulates/Embassies! (english)
03 Mar 2003
You can make a difference from your home! Take email/phone action now!
(If you've already read this section, page down!)

The Virtual March on Washington demonstrated that we can have an immediate impact by using our own home computers. Together with Indymedia, such action can achieve some specific results.

THIS PROPOSAL ENVISIONS TENS OF THOUSANDS of us checking email and Indymedia sites several times a day over the next several weeks, assessing the best ways to have an impact, and then sending emails, faxes, or making phone calls based on daily information.

The immediate goal is to flood the corporate media with specific requests, demands, criticisms about war coverage, or to ask that friends of peace remain steadfast. If we do this individually it will accomplish little. If we exercise our free speech rights in concert we may have a positive impact at very low cost.

THE PLAN works like this:

Check the newswire of your local or favorite indymedia site for messages with the starting title EMAIL ACTION! Read these specifically, for they will recommend issues on which to act, and perhaps suggest corporate media targets deserving of our attention.

Do this several times a day.

PUBLICIZE THIS EFFORT by distributing this message to organizational lists, friends, family, work associates.

INDYMEDIA WEBSITES are all over the country. Some key ones are:

http://dc.indymedia.org/
http://la.indymedia.org/
http://sf.indymedia.org/

From these sites you may navigate to a site near you.

IF YOU SEE A STORY worthy of email action, post it on the newswire using the EMAIL ACTION! prefix to the title.

Consider these four points:

o Best results may be achieved by posting to ALL Indymedia newswires.

o We cannot publicize and act on everything. Only the best stories that are really worthy of coverage are likely to have a positive result. Please use common sense.

o Our immediate concern is stopping the senseless war on Iraq. For now, other issues will only detract.

o Anyone can post to Indymedia newswires. Exercise judgment about what you read there.

URGENT ACTION NEEDED!!

Below is a listing of key UN Missions, Embassies, and Consulates for countries that the Bush administration is leaning heavy on to secure a UN resolution. We need to make visible gestures of support early this week and encourage these countries to remain firm in their opposition to a US/UK UN resolution that would lead to war.

We urge folks to:
- Set up meetings with UN missions, the embassies and the consulates of Chile, Mexico, Pakistan, Guinea,Cameroon, and Angola early this week (Monday if possible)if you are in any of the cities where they are based (see list below).
- If you can't get a quick meeting scheduled we urge you to bring or send flowers or other tokens of support to the embassies along with notes of support. Alert the press of the outpouring of support to these countries from
your city.
- At the very least we should all try to fax and e-mails strong letters of
support asking them to hold firm and not cave to the U.S.' coersive tactics.
Remind them that the world is on the side of peace and justice.
- At the very end of this e-mail is a listing of all the Security Council
Members' e-mails. At the very least please send a note to each member urging
them not to support a US/UK Resolution.

Rosalie Hoffman in NY is tracking folks' meetings or other
activities with reps from the key countries who need to be supported. Send her
the details of your meetings or activities. Her number is 718-522-4558 and her e-mail is rosaliefreepace (at) aol.com

IPS's new report Coalition of the Coerced may help you draft your letters of support or offer talking pts for your meetings.
