Virtual Senate Hearing
The World Mercury Project is made up of a team of passionate individuals who, like you, have witnessed what mercury can do to our loved ones firsthand. We understand how big of a toll it takes on a family to care for a sick child and know that, if you could, you would do anything to protect another child from harm.
The World Mercury Project is here to help amplify your voice, the voice of your child, and hundreds of others who have faced similar injuries from mercury. Alone, you each have a personal story, but together you can be the change that future children need. The government and media should not ignore this any longer!
The World Mercury Project is requesting your help in putting together a “Virtual Senate Hearing” – an informational montage video of hundreds of mothers and fathers of mercury-injured children. We would like you to participate by including your voice through a simple video recording in your home.
Your story will help protect a pregnant mother, infant, child, or adult from harm. We know that your everyday lives are very busy and can be overwhelming in caring for your child but we would greatly appreciate if you could take a few minutes out of your day to record a video in order to help put an end to this once and for all.
We ask that you please begin your video by stating your name and your child’s name along with where you live. (You may choose to have your child in the video with you if you would like.) From there, we would like you to record a very short 15-30 second video saying:
- My perfectly healthy son/daughter got autism (or whatever your child was diagnosed with as a result of the Mercury exposure) from whatever source, typically a vaccine
- The Mercury made him/her sick (describe how)
- It took my perfectly developing happy baby away and we never got him/her back
- Get the Mercury out of our vaccines (or other source of injury)
After the script, please record your personal story of what happened with your child in as much detail as you are willing to provide. Limit this part of the video to 2 minutes. Your story and hundreds of others will be saved and used on our website, with Congress, etc. to help inform others about the dangers of mercury and what happened to a generation of children.
When recording your video, please follow the guidelines in this video tutorial in order to ensure quality: hold the phone horizontal while recording with a steady hand, stand a few feet in front of a white background, record in a well-lit area of your home, and speak loudly. If possible, get someone else to film you. Be sure to look into the lens when speaking.
Please upload your video to our Dropbox by using this link: https://www.dropbox.com/request/QffM1tMAiXk9tfObGr4C

P.S. Here are links to three videos. The 15 to 30 second protocols weren’t set up yet so they aren’t exactly what we are asking for above, but the videos serve as examples of the type of videos we want.
