Before we list the Five Items to share with your friends, here are the social media hashtags developed by the organizers:
#MengWanzhou #freeMeng #FreeMengWanzhou #Cdnpoli #Elxn44 #ItsOurVote #Canada
Using these hashtags on Twitter or other social media in conjunction with the information below will increase their impact.
This is a big item. Journalists attended a press conference to mark the 1,000th day of Meng Wanzhou’s imprisonment in Canada. It is making the rounds, and you can play a role in informing people, too.
David Rennie’s great letter to the Hamilton Spectator has become the template for further letters about Meng. You can send something like this to your own local newspaper.
3. Gorilla Radio interview with Ken Stone
Coalition Treasurer Ken Stone gave an interview with Vancouver’s Chris Cook. It is detailed and informative, giving timely background about the case.
