Fun campaigning stuff: put that outrage to good use! [Feb. 29th, 2008|03:43 am]

So Dubai is whoring itself out to the UK at a major expo in Earls Court this weekend. I bring you The Dubai Show!

That's right! An entire festival devoted to sucking in more workers and investors, brought to you by the lovely folks who gave you this, this and this, amongst many other classic hits!

You can help

From Radha:

We are in need of a Team Leader to attend the Dubai Show in Earls Court, London this weekend. It will involve handing out press releases in order to raise awareness, further the campaign & highlight the extremity of the situation to the UAE authorities and international press. If you can lead the team, it would simply involve arranging to meet volunteers at a certain time with printouts. Please contact me urgently if you can help in this way.

Let's put a stop to this at the source! Anyone who's up for flyering the event get in touch with Radha at radha@futurecorp.co.uk

Pass it on!

I hope they find people for this. I'm the wrong side of the world but I'd certainly keep an eye out if they ever do one over here.

Yeah, it's all rather last-minute. We only just heard about this today.

OMG I'd not heard the poppy seed story before. This is so crazy. I hope things change now that more people are getting behind it.

Yeah, stories are coming to light that boggle the mind. Really, this info needs to get out there so no one else is compromised, at least until Dubai address this problem.

Woot!
Thanks for that! I'll be mighty chuffed that New Yorkers elect to give money to some bloke the don't know, and every bit that we get sincerely blows my mind.
Let me know the details of the event (flyers, etc) and I'll make a post about it when I get up tomorrow.
I wish Diz could see this :)

Might not need to. More later.
Looks like policy might be changing in Dubai after all...
