Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Here is a suggestion for our American friends who would
like to help us expose the U.S. government's manipulation
of the gold price.

First, please print copies of James Turk's essay, "How
ESF / Bundesbank gold swap caps the gold price," which
is archived in two parts here:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gata/message/734

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gata/message/735

Then print a copy of the eight questions arising from the
U.S. Exchange Stabilization Fund's engaging in "gold
swaps," which is archived here:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gata/message/754

Then write a covering letter to your U.S. representative
and your two U.S. senators, telling them that you are
concerned about the U.S. government's policy toward
gold in light of Turk's essay, which you are enclosing,
and would like them to obtain answers from the Federal
Reserve and the Treasury Department to some questions
about their policy toward gold, which you are also
enclosing.

Mail the material by regular mail -- nobody in Congress
pays any attention to email -- and please alert us to any
responses you get. If you have received no
acknowledgement from your U.S. representative and
U.S. senators after three weeks, you should telephone
their district offices to ask for a response.

You can identify your U.S. representative and U.S.
senators and get their mailing addresses here:

Just type your ZIP code into the open field at the left
of the screen.

With your help we can put some pressure on the bad
guys.
