Stand Up - Sit Down - Call For Help

Stand Up - Sit Down - Call For Help

Stand Up Sit Down are now at a stage where we need to take advantage of the momentum that has been building of late. We've organised one successful protest this season already at West Ham, more are planned we've and have had had our biggest expansion in membership over the past few weeks that we've had in a year. It is clear from the feedback we are getting from supporters – regardless of whether they wish to sit or stand – that this is an issue that is effecting more and more supporters now.

What we need now is more people on board enabling us to move on and move on faster. There are currently just two of us behind SUSD (plus a website administrator) and as we both work full time our efforts are confined to what free time we have meaning we're not making as much progress as perhaps we could with more people active behind the scenes.

Whatever time you can give us would be invaluable - we need help in the following areas:

*Administering our membership
*Getting more media awareness
*Writing to various authorities using the Freedom of Information Act to see if we can unearth information we can use to our advantage
*Spreading the word on websites
*Organising protests at your club
*General raising of awareness
*Letter writing to MP's, clubs etc
*Article writing
*Fundraising
*Anything else you can think of.

If you can help please contact Amanda or Peter at info@standupsitdown.co.uk with your name, your club and what help you feel you can offer. Once we've an idea of who can do what we'll reply with a co-ordinated plan of action for the coming weeks and months and we can really start moving forward with Stand Up Sit Down.
