I would like to remind you all of the event tonight in which the BIS and Batelco leadership will discuss the new Batelco offerings in broadband which we object to.
It is important that you are present, please. The more there are the more we will demonstrate to the powers that be that we are serious about our consumer rights. We have to make our voice heard, but in a civilised manner.
So let me beseech you all to please respect the occasion, do not go into personal attacks, do not get too emotional, and be very subjective and be on time! I am sorry if I sound condescending here, I do not intend it and I do not presume that I speak with your voice collectively. I would be honoured to of course.
Above all please remember that courtesy is contagious! We are going to be present at the meeting tonight to show everyone that we care, not for selfish reasons only but for the good of the country.
If I may suggest, it would be a good idea to coordinate our efforts so a quick meeting would be a good idea. I know all the points have already been raised amply in this site as well as the two main boycotting sites: boycottbatelco.com and batelco.info, I shall spend some time summarising them and shall print out leaflets with the summaries to be distributed at the event tonight. I need your help and your support. If you wish to raise points tonight at the discussion and you are more than welcome and highly encouraged to, please
call me on xxxxemail me so that we can arrange a meeting at my office at 4PM this afternoon before we go to the Open Discussion. To be effective, we must coordinate our efforts, acting singly will not achieve much.
Please be there: The Crowne Plaza Conference Centre at 7PM.
update 10 Jun, ’06: please don’t call me in this regard but feel free to email me. I did not public my phone number for anything BUT the meeting mentioned in this article. Thank you.
