  34. 34. Lobbying and advocacy is not only drinking a martini with a politician in the bad a of a 5 star hotel but its a long process with several intermediate steps. You dont win or lose just with a battle but you need to go trough the whole war. Be smart, be creative, be involving!
  35. 35. Be also cooperative but, if that is not reciprocal, be ready to use taugher means. I.E. Your politician refuse to keep his promises. Hold a press conference and tell everybody you are ready to go into battle to defende your rights.
