It is my sincere hope that everyone who believes in freedom of speech and transparency in government will take action by supporting this billboard campaign. Our government is treading in dangerous waters on this issue. We need to show our elected officials that we defend WikiLeaks, and demand adherence to the 1st Amendment and transparency in government. I stand behind WikiLeaks. Many Americans do. And though we all love our country, we want the facts and deserve the truth.
I've chosen an Epic Step billboard in Los Angeles as the venue for my campaign for many reasons, the most significant being exposure. Billboards in L.A. can produce over 1.5 million views in a single month. In addition to being one of the most crowded, diverse, traffic-ridden cities in the nation, it's also one of the best places to gain national news coverage. Lastly, I live and work in L.A. and would like nothing more than to see our pro-WikiLeaks billboard in our city.
Our billboard will demand attention and entice news outlets to cover it. It will compel our elected officials to take notice, as we loudly express our support for WikiLeaks. We have a tremendous opportunity here. We can actually make our voices heard. It's up to us to spread this message.
I am extremely passionate about this campaign, but know that with the help of my fellow Epic Steppers, we can make it even better. I came up with this message: "In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act! - George Orwell." While I like this message, I think there could be a better one out there. So, I'd like to ask all you amazing designers and writers out there to come up with witty messages and creative designs. We need to have the best options possible to choose from in order to make our billboard really stand out and capture the hearts, minds, and news cameras this cause so desperately needs.
This campaign is a reflection of all who support WikiLeaks. It isn't mine, it's ours. Let's start changing the world together. Well maybe not the world quite yet, but Los Angeles is definitely a great place to start.
