Honor Fallen Soldiers

Distribute an Opt Out form to protect our youth.
Under the No Child Left Behind Act, schools automatically give military recruiters student contact information unless students and parents submit an Opt Out form to the school principal. Don't let our youth be recruited to fight an illegal war predicated on lies and fixed intelligence.
Get the forms here.

The Downing Street Minutes, also known somewhat misleadingly as the Downing Street Memo, is one of several documents damaging to the claims of the Bush and Blair administrations that have been leaked to the media in Britain. Because these are the minutes of a meeting -- which occured on July 23, 2002, at #10 Downing Street in London -- they lend themselves to a dramatic recreation. Because Prime Minister Tony Blair was present but has no speaking role, we recommend bringing a well-behaved poodle to your event to stand in for him.

Here is a guide to performing a dramatic reading. This version adds a bit of humor.

Here is a guide to performing a dramatic reading that plays it completely straight.

For $13, Chris Belcher will sell you a DVD produced in cooperation with AfterDowningStreet.org. This 40-minute video is divided into chapters that can each be played separately. It contains highlights of the June 16, 2005, hearings, delivery of letter to the White House, and rally held in Washington. The testimony at the hearings has been selected with an eye to clearly explaining the facts to a newcomer. You might want to show all or part of this DVD at an event. We recommend showing all of it and purchasing a supply of these to sell or give to participants.

For $20, TakeBackTheMedia.com will sell you a 5-hour 2-DVD set containing the complete hearings and rally in Washington, D.C., on June 16, 2005. This includes every bit of the hearings and the rally, plus Congressman Conyers' delivery of a letter and 560,000 signatures to the White House, plus interviews of some leaders of the AfterDowningStreet.org coalition. Buy some copies to sell at your events!

Do you want to see video evidence of what they said two years ago, side by side with what they said last week? Do you want to see the Rove Scandal painted clearly with no punches pulled? This is a brilliant DVD. You can get a copy by making a donation to TakeBackTheMedia. You can do that and watch a preview here.
