Hope you’ve seen we’ve launched a petition for Europe to act on more repairable smartphones. We’re using the hashtag #LongLiveMyPhone. The clock is ticking, and we have less than two weeks to hold the European Commission to the plans they’ve hinted at. We know lobbyists are working hard behind the scenes to stymie this.
We’re nearing 15,000 signatures, but we’d like to double or triple this number.
In case you haven’t seen, we released a video about smartphones:
We would be super grateful if you could share the video and the petition (https://repair.eu/smartphones) with your grassroots community group.
Email is the best way of urging people to act. Please send it around if you can!
If you have an extra volunteer at your next repair event, you can encourage people to watch the video and sign the petition.
Here’s how you can help on social media.
Twitter: On Twitter you can retweet this post (https://twitter.com/R2REurope/status/1230543083034550273) or use this link for the video (https://twitter.com/R2REurope/status/1230543083034550273/video/1), which elegantly embeds the Campaign’s own video in your own tweet - no need to ‘quote tweet’.
Facebook: Please use our original pinned post (https://www.facebook.com/righttorepaireurope/) and “Share with your Page / Group” but remember that it’s helpful to include your own text (or simply copy/paste ours).
Instagram: Easiest to share our video in a Story (https://www.instagram.com/p/B8ygl4WHZqb/). But feel free to create a post with a screengrab, and add the YouTube link to your bio.
