There are times in history that mark a turn in policy and this must be one - people turn outrage to action! Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK
Mableton, GA (PRWEB) June 6, 2010
Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Free speech exercised both individually and through a free press, is a necessity in any country where people are themselves free.”
On June 19th, using hash tag #FreedomTweet, citizens around the world will log on to http://www.Twitter.com, exercising their right to champion the civil, social, and environmental causes impacting their lives. Throughout the 19th, supporters will *tweet* their freedom sentiments while following http://www.FreedomTweet.blogspot.com and http://www.Twitter.com/Juneteenth2010 to connect with the advocacy community and learn of the many social change initiatives represented.
“We’re empowered with the gift of free speech, and social platforms that carry our voices around the world. For the global community, FreedomTweet 2010 is an opportunity to speak out in defense of what matters most.” says Luckie Daniels, the organizer behind FreedomTweet. Daniels also shares, “I cannot think of a better way to observe the 145th Anniversary of Juneteenth, than advocating for the liberation of myself and others, today”.
In its simplest form, FreedomTweet 2010 seeks to motivate everyday citizens to become civic champions by exposing them to the power behind a simple 140 character *tweet*, and the thousands of advocates presently on Twitter mobilizing for their social causes.
It was best stated recently by Medea Benjamin of http://www.CODEPINK.org, in respect to the Gaza Flotilla Crisis, "There are times in history that mark a turn in policy and this must be one - people turn outrage to action".
Now is that time! Join FreedomTweet 2010 on June 19th to share with the world what freedom means to you!
