Attention Leonard Peltier Supporters

Mass Call-In to CNN Monday, July 11, 2011

Posted by Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee on Friday, July 8, 2011 at 2:52pm on FACEBOOK

Mass Call-In to CNN Monday, July 11, 2011

 

Join us in a coordinated mass call-in to CNN on behalf of Leonard Peltier. Shut CNN down until they realize they have a story.

 

On Monday, July 11th, at 10 a.m. (Eastern Time), start calling with your statement. It is important that the calls to CNN start promptly at 10 a.m. Insist that they cover the injustice posed by the continuing imprisonment of Leonard Peltier. Advise them of Leonard’s current situation (see http://lpdoc.blogspot.com/2011/07/leonard-peltier-in-hole-at-lewisburg.html), and tell CNN personnel that they should contact the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee at 701-235-2206 for information and referrals.

 

Then call back and ask for specific news anchors to cover/respond. Remember to be firm, but polite. Tell them freedom for Peltier is the only solution to this 35+-year injustice.

 

They may tell you that they get their stories from their affiliates (local) channels. While this is true, it is also true that they cover both whatever they wish and stories that demand coverage. We MUST demand coverage.

 

Call CNN at 404-827-1500 at 10 a.m., Monday, July 11, 2011.

Dial one for both of the first and second automated prompts/choices.

 

You also may submit story ideas online. Visit http://www.cnn.com/feedback/forms/form11e.html to submit a story idea or http://www.cnn.com/feedback/tips/newstips.html to submit a news tip.

 

Or Tweet them: @TeamCNN.
