Over time, there has been many thousands of threads on ATS and all that seems to happen is they are debated and, over time, they die - gathering dust in the archives.
Why don't we give ATS some balls?
It can possibly be achived a number of ways, however the "basics" of it is that a button is added to the thread that allows a user to click it and automatically send a "form letter" of type to the relevant senators in the relevant country/countries/groups/organizations etc.
Over time, a database could be created that contained all the government representatives in each country and this database could be searched and then with a simple "click", a template form letter could be created and then attached to the thread with the relevant senators/government reps.
When the user wants to protest, they then click that thread button to send an email to the senator/s.
Is that a direction that ATS can take?

ATS might be a large site, I do believe it's about 1.8million unique IP hits per-day. Yet, when compaired to roughly 60million people in the United Kingdom or roughly 300million in the United State's it is nothing.
To be fair, ATS is just a place where I post things if I want to make a difference I bother to attend conferences on war or directly speak to the MPs in the U.K. and so on and so fourth.
