1- Educate yourself : http://www.arcc-cdac.ca/action/M-312-fact-sheet.pdf
2- Parliament is archaic and does not recognize online petitions. Please print and sign the official paper petition here: http://www.arcc-cdac.ca/action/m312-paper-petition-en.pdf
3- Contact your MP and find out how they will be voting on M-312. How to find out who your MP is and how to contact them: http://www.parl.gc.ca/Parlinfo/Compilations/HouseOfCommons/MemberByPostalCode.aspx?Menu=HOC
4- On April 25th and April 26th, express your outrage on Twitter through the #NoDebate hashtag
5- Change your Facebook profile photo to our Radical Handmaid photo
6- If you live in a community in which a rally is planned, ATTEND IT!
No event planned in your community? Consider organizing one! The joy of organizing as Handmaids is that you don’t need a large crowd to really create some buzz and get people talking. Even a handful of people dressed up in costume in front of their MPs office is effective! Please connect with us if you’re planning an event, so we can coordinate and officially endorse: firstname.lastname@example.org
7- If you’re crafty, knit/crochet a womb: http://www.facebook.com/groups/354104927964655/?ref=ts&__adt=6 We’re encouraging people to ‘knit bomb’ their communities and MPs offices. Take a photo & send it to RadicalHandmaids@gmail.com We’ll keep track of ‘Womb sightings’ on our website
8- Print and mail official Anti-M-312 postcards, available for download here: http://www.arcc-cdac.ca/action/M-312-postcards.html Reminder: You can snail mail Parliament for FREE! Find a local organization or union who is willing to get some postcards printed and go hog wild! We want MPs to be receiving a steady stream of lobby material from now until the vote in the fall
9- Make (or photoshop yourself!) in a Handmaid costume. Send us the photo and we’ll post them on our website to maintain momentum! Interpret the Handmaid costume how you’d like or check out a pattern here: http://www.ehow.com/how_8487342_make-flying-nun-hat.html
10- NEVER underestimate the power of dialogue. This Motion is purposely cryptic and can easily trick people into thinking that Canada is archaic, has no abortion restrictions and is legally irresponsible. Talk with your friends, family and colleagues and explain to them how this Motion is a thinly veiled attack on abortion rights. Nothing more.
