    Urgent -- Friday at 9:30am shareholders will vote on whether to keep Rupert Murdoch and his sons on board as head of News Corp!

    Large pension funds have already agreed to vote against the Murdochs, but hundreds of small shareholders are still on the fence or are unaware of this crucial vote. Today, you can help us make thousands of calls to each and every one of these investors and urge them to fire the Murdochs!

    Call this News Corp shareholder now:

    Avaaz has collected the publicly available names of all News Corp shareholders. This page shows a different shareholder each time it is loaded.

    Helpful tips for your call:

    Please be polite (every shareholder is a potential ally). Your contact may not generally receive calls from the general public, so they may be confused about the reason for your call. Tell them you are calling about the News Corp AGM. Speak slowly and clearly, and leave a voicemail if you need to.
    • Please vote against the nomination of Rupert, James and Lachlan Murdoch to the Board of Directors at News Corp during the company’s Annual General Meeting this Friday.
    • The Murdoch family has failed to change a lawless culture at News Corp that puts shareholders at risk. Widespread hacking of celebrities and even murder victims by News Corp affiliates has thrown suspicion over the entire enterprise and threatened public support for News Corp affiliates.
    • A vote against the Murdochs on Friday is a vote in favor of a more responsible media, and therefore a more functional democracy.
    After calling, post a message about what happened using the tool on the right. This will help Avaaz count the number of calls made, and demonstrate the wave of worldwide outrage at the Murdochs.
