Dear News Assignment Editor:
Tomorrow, Wednesday March 20th there will be an amazing event on CSUN campus featured in tomorrow's Daily Sundial and their City Editor is sending a reporter to cover the event for Thursday's paper.
KCSN Radio on campus will be announcing this event all night tonight and until Noon tomorrow.
This fax is to request that you cover it and interview prominent folks coming to help get related stories into national media spotlight as per detailed info release coming soon hereafter tonight.
Wednesday March 20th at 11:16am is the moment of the Spring Equinox and the original annual Earth Day as proclaimed by the United Nations. Come to the lawn south of Oviatt Library for the first annual CSUN Earth Day Ceremony & Council promoting The Earth Charter, with a bell rung at that moment when a similar ceremony is taking place at the United Nations and many places around the world. The ceremony takes place from 10:45am until 11:16am ringing of the bell, and will be followed by an Earth Day Council featuring futurist and former NASA scientist-astronaut Brian O'Leary, cannabis hemp re-legalization movement leader Jack Herer, Twilight Zone and Star Trek screenwriter George Clayton Johnson, medical cannabis patient Sister Somayah with the California Patient Caregiver Association who was just acquitted Monday after a week-long 3-strikes trial, and American Peace Movement organizer David Crockett Williams, a 1969 CSUN Alumnus who will be conducting the Ceremony and Council.
Thanks for whatever you can do. Will later fax you detailed press release now in composition for main LA newspapers and network TV affiliates who are expected to come to cover the event whose message we hope to get into national news from here at CSUN. Meanwhile, you can see last two recent such info releases for details in latest messages posted to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/an-american-peace-movement.
