Please help support the boycott of Phillips/Israel by ensuring that she does not win this award.
The voting for the award ends tomorrow, Tuesday at 10.00pm. Votes may be submitted once ever 24 hours from the same computer. (Weird, I know, but all the finalists are governed by the same rule so its a sort of democracy.)
The Weblog with the best chance of winning and which is neck and neck with Phillips for the award is the arts and culture website 'Created in Birmingham' - a decent and community orientated blog for Brummies.
I am asking all Indymedia people to network ferociously over the next day and a half to ensure that as many people as possible vote against Phillips.
Help prevent this insult to the people of Gaza. Stop Phillips.
