: Tuesday 5 November is the People’s Assembly national day of action against austerity, tweeting on #burnausterity
. Alongside the many events of the day, we want to raise awareness of In Actual Fact
and enourage people to use it to back their anti-austerity campaigns.We’d love you to tweet (and Facebook) on and off throughout that day direct from the In Actual Fact
site, adding the #burnausterity
hashtag at the end of tweets (you might have to modify some tweets to squeeze it into the character limit).Please also use twitter to tell people about the In Actual Fact
site: the counter-propaganda site, giving actual facts about benefits and public services cuts. Include both the #inactualfact
Event 2: Wednesday 6 November 9.00pm, BBC will broadcast Britain on the Fiddle (the first in a series of three). This is a chance to show In Actual Fact working to counter propaganda. We need you to join us, mass-tweeting on the #britainonthefiddle hashtag (you might have to modify some tweets to squeeze it into the character limit).
We’ll be tweeting throughout the hour of the programme and for the hour after, answering every single lie with relevant tweets direct from the IAF site. We’re also planning to use tweets to respond directly to misinformation and bile put out by other people on the #britainonthefiddle thread.
