WeWontFly.com To Hold Demonstration Against Airport “Porno-Scanners”
on National We Won’t Fly Day

 

ORLANDO, FL – Grassroots airline boycott effort We Won’t Fly is organizing another educational demonstration on the main ticketing level at the Orlando International Airport on Thursday, December 23rd, between 4 and 7 PM to protest the use of recently-installed “porno scanners” at security checkpoints. Demonstrations are also planned for numerous other airports around the country. A similar demonstration held last month drew international attention.

“We had a big win on November 24th, National Opt Out Day,” says WeWontFly.com co-founder George Donnelly. “Courageous consumer advocates met up at twenty-eight airports around the country to educate flyers. The TSA dialed back their abuse for a couple days. And we reached millions of people through dozens of TV, radio and print interviews.”

“The immediate goal of the upcoming demonstration is to focus attention on the airlines and the travel industry,” explained WeWontFlyOrlando’s media director Scott Olver. “Once again, we are targeting the terminal level. That’s where the gropers and porno-scanners are. We are hoping we can convince the GOAA to junk their ineffectual, unhealthy scanners and replace them with something that actually provides security.”

Donnelly added, “We must open their hearts and show them our consumer power so they’ll get on our side. Together we have an excellent chance to replace the scanners and gropers with real security. But without the airlines on our side, further begging of congress critters is an exercise in futility.”

We Won’t Fly is a pro-consumer grassroots effort to encourage travelers to stop flying until the x-ray scanners have been removed, and to demand that airlines join with concerned consumers in opposition to the scanners and enhanced pat-downs.
