The WMF corporate site (wikimediafoundation.org) currently has a full-page ad with the text "We are watching Earth Day Live today. Will you?". This links to an external site with the text "Click here to sign on to the US Youth Climate Strike Coalition Earth Day Demands - From congress and the next president, we demand a People’s Bailout, a Green New Deal, and Land Back for Indigenous Peoples", and prompting readers to "Pledge to vote for our future" and to subscribe to "US Climate Strike".
Everyone here already knows how unacceptable this is, and why, so I don't think this requires any further explanation. The WMF should immediately take this down, and make certain that this kind of thing can't happen again. They've failed yet again at preventing inappropriate political activism in WMF's communications, and must take serious action to fix this constant stream of terrible failures. -- Yair Rand _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
