Negli USA, la CBS sta
facendo una serie preziosa di documentari sui problemi connessi alla contaminazione
perpretrata ai danni dei cittadini. Il programma, che sta avendo un'impennata
negli ascolti, è in diretta e si chiama "60
minutes". Ci piacerebbe che anche i media manager europei si svegliassero.
1. Watch Fail Safe on your local CBS television station, Sunday, April 9. CBS says the show will air at 9:00 p.m. in all time zones, but check your local listings to be sure.
2. Flood the White
House with calls on Monday, April 10, a national call-in action the day
after Fail Safe airs, to demand that President Clinton take leadership
for the abolition of nuclear weapons. For a call-in day flier to
distribute to your organization or to friends, family, and co-workers,
If you can make more than one call, call the Bush and Gore campaign headquarters to demand that they address the abolition of nuclear weapons as a campaign issue. Bush HQ: (512) 637-2000, Gore HQ: (615) 340-2000.
3. Write to President Clinton -- letters are still better than phone calls. For samples, go to http://www.disarmament.org/presltr.htm
4. Write a letter
to the editor of your local newspaper. Samples were sent out last
week via email. If you didn't receive one, contact me at
As the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass said, "Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will." Let's not miss this opportunity, when millions of Americans will be re-awakened to the danger of nuclear weapons, to raise our demand to wipe this scourge off the face of the earth.
