How to talk to your MP and change the Digital Economy Bill: training days (Thanks, Florian!)
ORG is organising training days for supporters all over the country. We kick off with a session in Manchester this Saturday, followed by Edinburgh on Sunday. We give supporters pointers how to approach, meet and talk to their MPs and made their voices heard. After a brief introduction supporters will do a dress rehearsal so that they can test what arguments are most convincing. It is important to let Parliament know that we are concerned about the Bill and how bad disconnection is. Talking to MPs is the most effective way of doing that.
Besides learning how to effectively lobby MPs this day is also a good opportunity to meet like-minded people and chat about latest ORG actions.

(Disclosure: I co-founded the Open Rights Group and am privileged to volunteer on its Advisory Board)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
