> This week, Scalia, one of the villains in the Supreme Court's
> misnamed Citizens United decision, callously said if people don't
> like all the political ads unleashed by the new multi-million dollar
> super-PACS they helped create, then people can just turn off their
> TVs. We now know that the giant conglomerate Viacom Inc, through
> their MTV division, has a different solution, refuse to take any ads
> for movies with content they don't like.
> But we have a third and much better answer, speak out with courage
> now to demand the end of corporate control and censorship of our
> media. And you can also see the ad MTV refuses to run on this same
> action page.
> Protest Viacom Censorship Action Page:
> http://www.peaceteam.net/viacom_protest.php
> Already more than 6,000 of you have submitted this action page, to
> send your personal messages of protest directly to Viacom's main
> corporate headquarters, and we will soon be getting major media
> attention about this, whether they like it or not. That's all the
> more reason why we need to keep the heat on and keep those protests
> coming.
> We had thought it would be good to put some video from the movie on
> MTV's high definition screen in Times Square. But they demanded first
> a synopsis of the film, and blithely admitted in writing that they
> were likely to reject any ad on a possibly arbitrary political basis.
> One of our participants pointed out in their protest message, that
> Viacom claims as their corporate responsibility mission that they
> "educate[s] employees and audiences key pro-social issues to inspire,
> enlighten and ignite action". Whoever wrote those words was probably
> either fired by Viacom the day after or was apparently snickering
> while they were doing so.
> So please submit the action page now. This is potentially a game
> changing action for retaking citizen control over our public
> discourse, if only we can mobilize each and EVERY one of you to
> simply speak out.

> And you like rock and rock, check out the theme song of the movie,

> There's one more thing we want to ask you about. We were invited to
> participate in an event for Rocky Anderson, former mayor of Salt Lake
> City, who is working on putting together an independent campaign for
> president. We'd like your feedback. You may remember, in the
> aftermath of the health care bill debacle, we vowed to only work for
> independent candidates. As our participants, is this something you
> would like to see us get involved in?
> Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
> to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
