Like Nash said, hold your breathes for a moment please! ;D Keep writing but hold back the sending. We'll explain... keep an eye on this thread! We'll just have to write it down. Might take a while but we'll let you know later tonight.
No, it will probably be a bit later on, but don't worrie you wont be missing anything if you have to go, it will just be a post/thread explaining our plan, but the plan willtake a few days/weeks to actually happen so tomorrow reading it should be fine xx

Hey guys, I hadn't seen that Bravo yet and I feel quite similar to all of you.
I'm going to be really honest with you all - I have supported TH a long time. Back before I started the street team, as well as for nearly a year with the street team. Initially there was some support. I say some because it has always been a somewhat shitty amount of support from the record label. And though the management have been supportive in the past, since the USA/Canada gigs were announced, there has been very little support.
I have tried to find out what is going on. Really. But they only parrot the same line - 'we believe 2008 will be the year of TH in UK.' Judging by the decisions that have been made and the schedule for the first half of this year, I really don't know if I believe that.
That is probably more honest than I should be. But, honestly, even though we're 'official', I haven't heard anything from Tokio Hotel's UK record label to do with Tokio Hotel since Ready, Set, Go was released last year. In August.
These last couple of days, the team and I have been discussing a mass UK fan action, which would involve emailing the fan email address and a couple of others. It's not wholly appropriate for me to do something like that, but I think that it's time the UK fans really made their voice heard. This really could be our last chance because I don't know how much more disappointment the UK fanbase can withstand. And, on a personal note, I don't know how much longer I can personally withstand it. We have never ever been rewarded for our time and energy and that gets to me.
The mass fan action will involve everyone emailing on the SAME day with the same subject line. In the email you can say exactly what you want in whatever way you like. We will post more details as soon as we have agreed them.
Sorry I come with such rubbishy news. I have been keeping most of this to myself and it's a much more complicated and hideous story than anyone realises. But, I don't really think as a street team we have anything to lose now. We might as well make our voices heard.
As Claire can't run the "protest" me and the other MODs will help guide you along. We will give you, a list of possible points you can make in your email and the date/time of the mass posting. expect this shortly

LOL, I can't get on Skype to talk to the rest of them, but I assume we will announce the date in the next few days/ 2moz ... but the date of sendin it will be in about a week and a half ..giving us time to make sure we spread the word and get alot of ppl doing it. Clearly we cant post about it on the ST. But I will post on www.myspace.com/uktokiohotelfansite and see if th.org.uk will post about it ... the rest is down to you guys to spread the word.

I've already started to tell people. Can we design like a little flyer or something we can hand out at school? Because it will be a bit of a rant on to have to keep telling people about it. Like a flyer we can print off to hand off, or just post on peoples myspace pages and just everywhere on the internet?
kl flyer sound good for me ... slap the st myspace ddy on there aswell .. we can get some promo out of it HAHAH. but it will be more for fans who already know TH and understand our frustration ... Ill make a banner for this aswell to spread across the internet
