An Idea For Activism

I wonder if it would be possible to "recruit" teams of people willing to make daily phone calls to media outlets, elected officials' offices, etc...

Let's say we get 10 people willing. One week, 2 people would be responsible for the daily phone calls. The next week, 2 new people would be responsible, and so on. At the end of 5 weeks, we'd start over,

This would be the type of thing people could do if they're retired, or have a lot of time on their hands.

The focus of the phone calls could be that the families are calling for a new investigation, or both the families and the people are calling for a new investigation.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Volunteers?

Thought and Suggestion

My thought is it needs some polishing.
My suggestion is that you post a sample script or scripts that people could use when calling. Maybe one for "the families are calling for..." and one for "both the families and the people are calling for...". We can see which version works best. Which do you think would be more powerful?

Script...

"Hello. I'm calling you today on behalf of the 9/11 Families, and the people of the United States.

Within the last 6 months, the following has happened.

On May 22nd, a Zogby Poll showed that 45% of Americans suspect that, "US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their [the 9/11 attacks] success.

On August 1st, a Scripps Howard poll showed that "more than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East."

On October 14th, a CBSNews/NYTimes poll showed that only 16% of Americans believe the official story of 9/11.

On August 4th, 9/11 family members Lorie Van Auken, Patty Casazza, Mindy Kleinberg, and Monica Gabrielle released a statement that questioned the "entire veracity" of the 9/11 Commission's report.

On September 5th, a documentary endorsed by the families that fought for the creation of the 9/11 Commission was released entitled, "9/11: Press For Truth."

On September 11th, at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., family members Donna Marsh O'Connor, Michelle Little, and Christina Kminek asked for, "a new investigation into the events of September 11th, and this time, a truly bipartisan, global, with families invested from the beginning, middle, and throughout the end."

On October 14th, Monica Gabrielle, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg, and Patty Casazza released a petition that calls for, "the immediate declassification and release of all transcripts and documents relating to the July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice" as well as "the declassification and release of both the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Into The Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 (JICI) and the CIA Inspector General’s report, "CIA Accountability With Respect To The 9/11 Attacks".

We are demanding that a new investigation into 9/11 take place.

There is no excuse not to."

How's that?

A bit too long?

Perhaps "recent polls inidicate..." and "we invite you to visit (website) for more information and join us in demanding a new investigation". Longer messages will be more difficult to convey over the phone.

Well...

I think any of the points are worth mentioning. Depending on how long you have to talk, might dictate what you actually recite.

I just called the NYTimes...

And didn't go by the script, but I said, "Hi, is this the New York Times news desk? It is? Really? Then why aren't you covering the fact that the the people affected by the most horrific attacks in the city your paper is named after, are calling for a new investigation?"

Can you believe they said, "Sir, we've covered 9/11..."

After 9/11 blows open & some of the horrors are rectified, I'm

really going to want exact answers as to why O'Reilly, Hannity, the rest of FOX & CNN have been deliberately bullshitting all over us for the past 7 years!
