Public Citizen

Public Citizen | About Public Citizen: “We fight for openness and democratic accountability in government, for the right of consumers to seek redress in the courts; for clean, safe and sustainable energy sources; for social and economic justice in trade policies; for strong health, safety and environmental protections; and for safe, effective and affordable prescription drugs and health care.”

This is an American site which encourages you as a citizen to take action and show the government that you actually are not prepared to sit there and wait. There are times when normal citizens can band together to bring about change in an effective way on vital issues. We live in a democracy so it is important our governments represent us and deal with the issues we are concerned about. The “todo” list of this organisation is very impressive and just the very thing we need to be reminded about. Change is action.
