Tweeting our solidarity with Taksim

angry-twitter-birdWe’re doing mass mailings today to encourage our supporters to Tweet this:

@RT_Erdogan Polis ?iddetini durdur, protestolara izin ver! Stop police violence, allow protests! http://bit.ly/18Q2O8Y #direngeziseninleyiz

And we’ve explained what this means:

  • @RT_Erdogan – This is a direct tweet to the Turkish Prime Minister – his staff will see it.
  • Polis ?iddetini durdur, protestolara izin ver! – The Turkish phrase meaning “Stop police violence, allow the protests!”
  • http://bit.ly/18Q2O8Y – The address for our campaign.  People will see and more will send email protests.
  • #direngeziseninleyiz – The most widely used hashtag by the demonstrators in Turkey today.  Using this hashtag guarantees that many thousands of them will see our tweets.

Please spread the word.  I’ll report back later to see what effect, if any, this has – including on support for our Turkish-language campaign (now 303 messages sent out of 17,229).

  • Great idea and one that will hopefully not just raise our numbers but generate an increase in the Turkish numbers especially.

    That’s already happening. In the last two hours, the MAJORITY of support for the campaign is coming from the Turkish language campaign. In fact at the current rate, we’ll pick up 1,000 new supporters from Turkey today. (I doubt this rate will continue.)

  • Suggestion: A mailing to the Turkish list while this is all still hot. Ask them to pass the campaign on to all their contacts with an urgent recommendation that they all join-in.
