TIMED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OTTAWA’S NEW START
Here is the next installment of your 2011 Action Kit series.
Raising awareness through blogging and social media is excellent, but can these actions alone cause fundamental change? Armed with the MP Package and a new Parliament the NHPPA is asking you to get physical for the summer.
We are asking you to commit to arranging one face-to-face meeting with your MP. There are now citizens in each of our 308 ridings across Canada. If you are still unsubscribed join today!
TWO NEW ACTION KITS ARE NOW AVAILABLE ON-LINE!
Visit your MP, take up your democratic right to have your voice heard directly. It can be an intimidating idea but the NHPPA has put together a kit to help you.
Your MP may be returned to Parliament with a renewed majority, after years in Ottawa, or they may be newly elected this year. Whoever represents you and whatever their experience they have recently felt the will of the people.
VISITING YOUR MP ACTION KIT
What to bring and what to say
Here you will find a detailed guide to making an appointment with your member of Parliament and to making the most of your time. There are links to materials you can use, both to deepen your knowledge and understanding before you go, and to supply for your MP to read and respond.
The official list of elected Members was expected to be available beginning on Tuesday, May 24th, 2011. However, when NHPPA prepared this post the link to the list was not yet live. Check back this week to see if the Parliament website has been updated: House of Commons Members of Parliament
VIDEO LINKS ACTION KIT
Short clips for Facebook and Email
Video remains a powerful medium for learning and sharing.
As the assault on the natural health community continues, as the government which began removing your constitutional rights returns with more power than ever, we need every concerned citizen to deepen their understanding of the issues. The problems are complex, the human tragedies are desperate.
In your Video Links Action Kit you will find interviews, lectures, interactive legal explanation and more. The NHPPA had compiled these accessible and engaging tools to help you learn and teach. Find suggestions for using the video links for yourself and others, with this user-friendly information you can engage your network right now.
EFFECTING CHANGE. ONE PERSON AT A TIME.
We know that time is running out, everyone who sees their ability to choose freedom eroded has to act now. We know that it can be difficult to know where and how to start. We are supplying your running blocks, but only you can run. Please, don’t rely on others to move and challenge this fight. Take issue with something specific you find personally unjust about the choices being made in Ottawa, for yourself and all of those who demand the freedom to choose.
As the Action Kit series grows to completion, only you can use the tools it offers. Make this your time.
