We have seen a dramatic raise in public support for Julian Assange among activists and regular citizens across the country and across the world.
Every Thursday (and hopefully every day) we are encouraging supporters spend ONE HOUR of their time to pressure US elected officials on the state and federal levels to immediately end the extradition of Julian Assange and ensure his health and safe release from Belmarsh prison (the Guantanamo Bay of the UK).
We will not be providing templates or pre-written messages, instead we will be providing tools for people to use. We encourage everyone to write and speak in their own words to their representatives, and other officials across the country.
All we ask is you engage politely!
Toolbox Resources –
1. https://resist.bot is an online web-tool that send free faxes for you to BOTH state or national Legislators. ResistBot can be used via text messaging, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and/or iMessage to send personally written faxes, as quickly as you can type them.
2. https://www.contactingcongress.org is a website which offers a simple search format for people to find the addresses and phones for all Federal Congressional Representatives. This includes the Phone Number and Address for their local offices inside their district. Engaging the local offices with personal phone calls and hand written letters is the most effective way to capture the attention of Congressfolk and their staff members.
3. https://www.nationalpriorities.org/take-action/contact-your-representative/ is an effective tool which provides links you to the Congressfolk’s Phone Number, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube accounts.
Please spend as much time as you can using these free tools to politely pressure your representative (in multiple ways, and through multiple avenues) with us every Thursday.
We can free Julian Assange, but only if we act together.
