In case you missed it, Australians have responded in record numbers to outrageous threats from the US towards WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, an Australian citizen.
Already, 50,000 Australians have signed on to a statement about WikiLeaks, and GetUp members have contributed $250,000 so far – enough to book a full-page ad in leading world newspaper, The New York Times.
Now we need to make that statement as powerful as possible, by turning 50,000 signatures into 75,000 and even 100,000 in the next few days.
The most important thing you can do is take one brief moment to click on the link below to read and sign up to the statement:
The second very important thing you can do is tell your friends, family and colleagues about this campaign. Those you know are much more likely to open, read and take action on an email if it comes from you, so you are the key to building this movement.
So many Australians are angered by the threats to WikiLeaks and Juilan Assange from the US and by our Government’s failure to speak out against them. They want something to do about it, and you can give it to them. Forward our original email below or click here to use our handy facebook and Twitter tools to spread the word.
Thanks for standing up,
The GetUp Team
