This website is just the start. You are the #saveFOI campaign. If you want to stand up for FOI here are a few things you can do. Remember to keep coming back as we’ll add suggestions as we go along.
Write to your MP
MPs are elected to represent the interests in Parliament of their constituents. The more people who stand up in defence of FOI, the more that Parliament will listen. You can find out who your local MP is (as well as your local councillor and local Member of the European Parliament) and contact them, through http://www.writetothem.com/
Sign our Petition
The saveFOI petition is now open. Please sign it, and let others know about it, if you value FOI and want to help persuade those reviewing it that it mustn’t be weakened.
Follow us on twitter
We are @saveFOI on twitter – please follow us for news of the campaign, and let us know if have any good examples of FOI in action, or of support or criticism of FOI. Please also use the hashtag #saveFOI so all relevant tweets can easily be followed.
And most importantly…
Stand up for FOI! We’re looking for people who are prepared to speak out, whether that be to the media, or as representatives of their organisations. Contact us via twitter, or use the form below if you want to take part.
