Call Bush For Free!

An unusual action was organized in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg: now citizens of the city and from the nearby districts can dial 002 and call US President George W. Bush in the White House. The organizers of the action say that in the network of the campaign, 987 calls to the White House have been already made and 112 people talked to an official from the US Presidential administration.

One of Yekaterinburg paging companies was the organizer of the action; officials of the company say, any citizen can call the White House in Washington, DC, absolutely free of charge. This is done for people to express their opinion concerning the US-led war campaign in Iraq.

Within the past two days of the action the biggest number of telephone calls was made between 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 p.m. Majority of calls when Russian people managed to talk to US administration representatives were made after midnight.

The paging company doesn’t comment upon the subject of telephone conversations between the US President and Russian citizens, as it would be violation of the right for privacy of telephone conversations. In general, the organizers of the action say that people called to state their protests against the US aggression in Iraq.
