This weeks actions will focus on getting different organizations making statements about Julian Assange and the threat to global press freedom that his case represents. We will also be continuing to contact labor organizations in the United States in an attempt to build solidarity with workers and organizers across the country.
Asking Organizations To Join The Action!
Often times organizations are willing to respond to public pressure, and providing them with updated information, link to statements from other groups, and information from the UN.

Contacting the IBEW
As part of our continuing outreach to different members of organized labor, we are randomly selecting different local and state branches of the IBEW about Julian’s situation. Please, as always, be polite when you are contacting different people and dont take any differences in opinions personally.

Local Government Education About Facial Recognition
Contact your local mayor, sheriff, police chief, and councilfolk about dangers of facial recognition and the ways others communities have banned it. Often times providing examples of other cities that banned facial recognition shows them how it can be done for them locally.
