Some insider help - and help from YOU?

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.

  3. Sam R Says:

    Alison sent me some stuff a little while ago, we’ve chatted a bit through email. If you like I can email her and tell her that I trust you; maybe that would help?

  4. Matt Says:

    I am joining your internet storm and feeling hopeful about the forecast.

  5. Claire Tillyer Says:

    I have emailed the nice lady (Alison) to offer my support and also to ask her nicely to help you. Hopefully reasoned argument will convince her :-)

    Hate to be the person who states the obvious here… but if you are planning some big break-in plan, why post it on your website?
    The police warrant would mean the samples are destroyed, yes, but surely if they know that you are planning they would do the same? If I was Prometha, I would destroy the samples and catch you in the act, getting you arrested for breaking and entering….
    You’ve given them a head start Matt.

  7. Matt Says:

    Did you hear anything back from Alison yet, Tilly?

  8. Claire Tillyer Says:

    Not yet no, but I’m hopeful. I think maybe she’s snowed under with offers at the moment!
    Hopefully she’ll reply tomorrow. If not I’ll email her again.

    I don’t see any way to get in legally except getting a job there (which might be useful for Rachel seeing as she doesn’t have one at the moment) but unless you can whip a Biosciences degree out of your pocket that might be a bit difficult (also by now they probably know who you are). The best bet would be to host a rally outside their offices, distracting them long enough for someone to slip in (not that I condone that in any shape or form).

    ^^All of the campaigning that I did today is on my Blog…
    Thought you might like to see the fun I had!

    I already tried the whole “applying for a job” route in an attempt to bring down the system from with in. However they said all their vacancies were filled for the time being. Personally I think they were already closing ranks by that time.
