CBS 60 minutes: 20 milioni di americani sapranno la verità (6 aprile)

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.

On Sunday, April 9, over 20 million Americans are expected to watch the live CBS television remake of the anti-nuclear drama "Fail Safe" starring George Clooney, Richard Dreyfuss, Harvey Keitel, Brian Dennehy, and Noah Wyle. Thousands of concerned citizens will gather in homes, churches, colleges and universities for Fail Safe "watch parties" to discuss the movie and raise their voices to demand the abolition of nuclear weapons. Even if you can't organize or attend a watch party, we need you to participate.  Here's how:

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, go to
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

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.

In Peace,
