> We also encourage everyone to not only sign the letter, but also

> We are planning send out the letter to each administrative office
> via emails (and in some cases through regular mails) on September
> 15 and address it to the current presidents of national assemblies 
> <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_current_presidents_of_assembly>,
> or similar authorities. As we have looked through this list, it has
> come to our attention that some of the information on national
> assemblies is out of date. We are working to verify the data
> ourselves, but if you can provide verification for who the head of

> We are excited to send a clear, global message to legislatures --
