Donald Trump has continually asserted that he is building the golf course in memory of his mother who hailed from Lewis. However, this video will turn those words on their head. A puppet of Donald Trump will sing altered words to Bohemian Rhapsody. It will be produced to the highest standard, using top class musicians, puppet and film makers and will include wry humour.
We hope this video will draw attention to the plight of the families who have suffered constant intimidation by the Trump organisation and question the reasons behind his ability to bypass environmental policy.
The Trump organisation, the Scottish Government and local council have access to a wide variety of media outlets but the Menie families are limited in putting their views over - especially as the local paper, The Press & Journal, refused to report the activities of the protest group.
What We Need & What You Get
We need to hire equipment and cover the cost of the outlays for the puppet maker and musicians, including studio hire.
The professionals working on the video will give their time for free, but we need to cover their expenses. Our aim is to keep the standard high and make a polished video which people will want to view as a creative and musical work and not just a means of putting over our message. This way, more people are likely to watch it and pass it on to their friends.
We hope to release the video by the summer of 2011- understandably, time is vital.
If you support this production, we want to give something back, take a look at the perks and there may be more, so do keep in touch:
Other Ways You Can Help
Do feel free to spread the word and post on your facebook page. If you have any suggestions or think you can help in any way, do get in touch. We all have one purpose: to stand with the Menie families against corporate and governmental bullying - we want them to be able to return to their peaceful lives with the threat of CPOs removed. Governments will not listen to individuals, but we can see that they listen to Menie voices.
