ETA This Action is International, not just for US citizens. This action is ongoing, and not just for a week as stated in the misleading report in your ME/CFS Emergency Action email, sent on 10/4/10 at 21.08. Thanks to MEZombie for the info You may remember Rikva, in her Clinical Trials Now video and her one woman action outside the NIH. She was also part of the awesome meeting prior to the XMRV conference between NIH officials and ME/CFS patients. Check out the video link at the bottom of this post, and consider making this the first thing you do on your computer every morning. === Please Forward Widely === "Time for Action" Campaign For ME/CFS Patients, Their Families and Friends Organizers: Robert Miller, Rivka Solomon, Charlotte von Salis Contact: email@example.com On the heels of the September 7, 2010, historic NIH meeting with ME/CFS patients and their families, now is the time to let our federal health agencies know we are expecting big changes. The more they hear from us now, the more they'll listen to us next time we meet. Our "Time for Action" campaign is advocacy made easy -- yet it will have a huge impact. We ask patients, their families and friends to email, call and/or fax NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci with this simple question every day, starting today. (Please Cc: emails to Robert Miller at: firstname.lastname@example.org) Dear Directors Collins and Fauci, What have you done for ME/CFS today? Patients and their families are waiting.

She also suggested that we non-Americans write this: What have you done for ME/CFS today? Patients and their families are waiting, and the international community is watching.
