HELP Stop the #FERCus with Social Media!

fork_road_FERC_meme_v2
There will be more than 500 participants throughout our week of actions in DC!  With this in mind, some of us on the ground will plan on reporting back live to social media.  What we need from our friends and family who may not have the ability to be with us in-person is some dedicated social media boosting — this is a critical role that only works when many people get involved.  This will ensure greater coverage within your individual communities due to your leadership and knowledge of local media and active citizens.  On the national level, we have an opportunity to expose this “rogue agency” of rubber-stamping industry supremacy so that action can be taken to dismantle this rigged process and end the enabling of fossil-foolish infrastructure projects and all related fracking industry #communicide.

For those who want to dedicate efforts above-and-beyond what is laid out below, PLEASE fill out the form at the bottom of this page 🙂

To assist in timing your much needed and appreciated social media skills, please keep our Stop the #FERCus Schedule of Events handy:

The bulk of our live twitter activity will be during weekdays from 7AM-4PM for your re-tweeting and custom tweeting excellence.  We anticipate anywhere from 3-6 facebook postings in a day and would appreciate you sharing these with your communities (on facebook pages, facebook groups, on your timeline and your friends’ timelines)

Photos from the action will also be available in our Flickr Group entitled “FERCus” — this can be accessed by contributors who can upload photographs from the actions.  In order to contribute to this group, you must have a registered Flickr.com account and send a request to the admin of the group to be added:

Be sure to use this primary hashtag (for twitter and facebook):

#FERCus


Please include this hashtag which includes communities beyond FERC that are exploited by dirty corporate energy systems and government enabling:

#Communicide

Facebook Action
Like our facebook page first: Beyond Extreme Energy #BXE
Please check back directly for action updates throughout the 21st-31st — we are planning on publishing articles, sharing press coverage, developing video and image memes, posting photo galleries and more from our skilled media team’s dedicated efforts.

If is great and simple to “Like”, but remember to please use the “Share” feature to spread these postings to as many people you know on facebook.  This is important to develop more engagement beyond our present networks.

If you are feeling ambitious, please feel free to “Tag” your friends in images or videos to draw them into the conversation.
