In a show of solidarity with our brethren in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America is calling for a nationwide action asking everyone to Tie an Orange Ribbon for Democracy. Ribbons in the symbolic orange color of opposition candidate Victor Yushchenko, should be tied on trees, lampposts, street signs, etc. in your neighborhoods. The ribbons should also be tied in front of your respective government buildings. Before your local Ukrainian churches, Ukrainian National Homes and where you deem necessary.
The coordinated action is to take place on the evening of Thursday, December 2nd, so that in the morning of December 3rd towns and cities are blanketed with orange ribbons.
Dont forget to contact your local media outlets to inform them of this nationwide action. A sample press release will be available on the UCCA website on Tuesday, November 30th.
