Given that we know MAL - Prometha’s new product, and set to make them a lot of money - is derived from Murutaibo DNA, how do we get proof without the evidence being destroyed?
So - we need two things: a sample of MAL from Prometha and DNA from the Murutaibo.
I’ve spoken to Alison Streatwell from DEPAA, and she nearly agreed to use her contacts in Peru to get samples from the Murutaibo in hospital out there. I say nearly: she doesn’t quite believe that I’m serious enough about her cause.
I’ve got a plan. I think we can get her on-side if we help her out first.
There’s a page on the DEPAA site about how they think grass-roots activism on the internet can help spread word of their cause. They even give examples of the kind of thing you can do:
You can save the amazon!
It’s easier than you might think. The first step is raising awareness, and to do that you can:
- Tell a friend
- Make a petition
- Put up a banner
- Hold a protest march
- Create a website
- Write a letter to the editor
- Use your imagination… what can YOU do?
Protest marches are going to take too long to organize, but surely we can whip up an online storm in support of DEPAA? We just need to get word out there, and make sure she knows that it’s us doing it…
Here’s what I need you to do:
Read the stuff on the DEPAA site. Download the badges, put them on your facebook pages, your blogs, your myspace. Tell your mates. Stick up a poster or two. Twitter it. Take pictures.
Most importantly, take a record of what you’ve done, and email DEPAA. Tell them what you’re doing, and tell them that you’re doing it because Matt Blacker asked you to, and he needs DEPAA’s help .
If we can get Alison’s help, then we just need to get to Prometha. It goes without saying: please don’t contact Prometha directly to ask questions about this.
