Link to 38% Campaign
Padre asked about what was going on at the moment, as the entry is in the thread about 'Hacking', I though it best to reply with a fresh thread.
Currently the 38% Campaign stands at 4112. It's therefore vital that all members keep spreading the word and encouraging people to sign up, it's simply not enought to have signed yourself, we need to get the message across to as many as possible, so please keep up the good work. If we can raise this total to over 10,000 then the 30% campaign team may get behind the campaign and help it go national.
I believe around 12,000 signed up to a separate petition under the heading Waterloo Petition, which was started some time ago by Major (Ret’d) Fowler to rasie awareness and support for the NDM. We should be able to draw on this support when the time is right.
The FOI complaint is on going but looks like it will be upheld so we await developments there, and this may yield a positive result in getting some answers to the last decision.
On the Media front several member will be taking part in a BBC Look North programme to put the case for the NDM across to the wider public. More details when known.
If you are prepared to be interviewd locally then can I suggest you contact your local newspaper and offer to tell your story and help promote the campaign. If you get a positive response then either myself, Tony or Paul will be happy to help supply the overview or any support you need.
It has been said before but it is worth repeating, the only way we will shift this Governments stance on the NDM is by massive public support and by shaming them into action. At the moment as far as the Government are concerned they have dealt with the issue, it's our job to change that attitude.
We have had a number of new members join in the last month or two so I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome them all along and hope they too will become actively involved in what will be a just but long and difficult struggle for recognition.
