Here are some basic statements that you can copy and paste as you see fit.

Basic Statement One, best for a likeminded website/facebook group/etc
. "Hi, my name is (NAME), a representative of BlockTheFilter's (STATE) division.
. Due to the similar nature of our events/groups, BlockTheFilter would appreciate it very much if your representatives would make contact.
. In order for there to be national coherency, we're establishing contact people and lists of active volunteers for protests on the 30th.
. If this is you, or you'd like to help, please email:
. moc.liamg|htimslelorp#moc.liamg|htimslelorp (OR YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS)
. Thank you very much for your time and effort."

Basic Statement Two, best for a likeminded professional organisation/political group
. Thought I'd pass along some information.
. On the 30th of January 2010, masses will be peacefully protesting the new National Internet Filter outside government buildings, in each major city across Australia.
. We all truly are against the filter, and therefore having everyone and anyone there who feels the same would be fantastic.
. Of course, (ORGANISATION NAME) supporters, staff and members are more than welcome to attend, and will be forwarded any additional details upon request.
. Donations of time, experience and advertisement are priceless.
. Our event on facebook ,
. Our website

. Though I'm sure you're thoroughly versed in the pros and cons of the filter, further details can be found at
. If you'd be interested in learning more about this, and possibly assisting by any means, we'd be thoroughly greatful.

. Please contact us at (YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS).
. My thanks,

All speakers should follow the simple rule that the event is designed to tackle the issue of internet censorship, so speeches must be kept to the point and on topic.
It should be made clear that the protest is not just a platform to further any political careers, nor to impose any personal ideals or values upon others.
