Take Mass Action

Ever since Article 8/Massresistance's obsession with mannequins a number of new blogs have popped up. One in particular has been pretty regular with its posts, it's called Take Mass Action and it's run by Chris Mason of Cambridge.

Chris has already had a very interesting life and he's just 24. From his concern for the environment (starting a group at 9 years old to protect the rainforests) to his opposition in high school to anti-gay military recruiters, Chris has shown that the youth of today are concerned about the world and people around them.

His lastest post takes on MassResistance/Article 8's insistence that gay youth not be protected. Cleverly he also uses the tactics of anti-gay forces against them:

Anti-gay organizations are having hundreds of people make calls to a targeted group of state legislators to try and stop the funding for gay/straight alliances. They are even having people that live in other states call OUR state legislators!

We need to be calling these same legislators and telling them to vote to override the governor's veto. Start by calling your own legislators.

Next, we will use the list provided by the anti-gay group to call the same targeted group of legislators. Start with the top of the list and work your way down. Their WebPages are included so you can send them an email as well. When you call you will be speaking to an aid. Politely tell this person why you think our schools should be safe for ALL students and urge them to vote to override the governor's veto.

It's good to see younger people getting involved in issues that are directly affecting them. Their passion is a wonderful contrast to the hate filled rhetoric erupting from the Right.
