Throughout 2012, You’ve Been Trumped will be screening across the UK, Europe, the USA and the rest of the world.  

The number one question asked by people who have seen the film is:  “What can I do?”



DONALD TRUMP







Got something to say to Donald Trump about the Trump golf resort development destroying the former Site of Special Scientific Interest at the Menie Estate in Aberdeenshire, Scotland? 

Write to Rhona Graff, Executive Assistant to Donald Trump by clicking here.   

Or contact Donald Trump directly via twitter by clicking here.


THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT







Want to write to Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond, whose Government gave the Trump project the go-ahead?


Email Mr Salmond’s Special adviser Geoff Aberdein by clicking here.   Or on twitter, contact Mr Salmond by clicking here whilst the Scottish Government is found here.  


Meanwhile, we’re urging the First Minister to watch You’ve Been Trumped at a public screening - at a time and place of his choosing.  Read the filmmakers’ email exchange with the First Minister’s Special Adviser here following the open letter we wrote to Mr Salmond here.  Our last email on 23 November 2011 remains unanswered. 



GRAMPIAN POLICE







Grampian Police issued this half baked apology in December 2011 following a whitewash cover-up enquiry into the unprecedented arrest of filmmakers Anthony Baxter and Richard Phinney (and the subsequent charges they faced) whilst making You’ve Been Trumped.   According to Britain’s National Union of Journalists, it’s the first time two journalists have been arrested and charged in the United Kingdom for simply carrying out an interview. 


You can read the filmmakers’ response to Grampian Police here


There is currently little point of writing to Grampian Police, as the force will send you a standard issue misleading and irresponsible letter by way of a reply.  You can read the letter being sent out to concerned viewers of the film along with our response here.  Regrettably, the Grampian Police press office refuses to retract a false statement about our arrest.  You can write to the Police Complaints Commissioner for Scotland here.  However, it is worth noting, that the PCCS is paid for by the Scottish Government, which gave Donald Trump the go-ahead to build his golf resort. 


Should you still wish to write to the Chief Constable of Grampian Police, Colin McKerracher, you can send a letter to this address or via email by clicking here (marking your email for Mr McKarracher’s attention).

Want to know whether Aberdeenshire Council will finally rule out Compulsory Purchase Orders being used against residents on the Menie Estate (i.e. forcing them to move)?


Email long time Trump supporter Anne Robertson, Leader of Aberdeenshire Council, by clicking here.  And find out what the authority intends to do about the mounds of earth constructed next to residents‘ homes without planning permission by Trump’s contractors.    What has the Clerk of Works been doing?  (Request dates and times of visits.)   What action has Aberdeenshire Council taken to halt illegal works?   And what health and safety investigations have been ordered into the cutting off of water and electricity supplies to residents by Trump’s contractors?


Please write to the residents with your support - and we’ll forward on your letters and cards.

The Trump Organization has branded the local residents of the Menie Estate ‘a national embarrassment for Scotland’ and those objecting to Donald Trump’s golf resort ‘parasites’.    Cinema audiences disagree.
