Hi Evan,

For an "International conference call" you need to provide a time in UTC.  

Most of us don't understand "EST".

We have been sort of lurking on this BestBits list, wondering what others are planning for December 3rd We're hoping to work with others around the world to mobilize a big day of action for that date using an online phone call / email tool and an interactive map that encourages people to organize meetings outside their country's ITU representative's office.

The purpose of this call is to bring together groups from around the world  who are working on ITU activism to coordinate a final push in the week leading up to WCIT. We want to know what everyone else is doing and how we can all work together to keep the pressure on as the ITU goes to vote.

So far we know we will have representatives from Mozilla, the AFL-CIO (who are working with their international partners on this), Center for Democracy and Technology, and we have invited many other groups from around the world.
