Fossil Fools Day 1. april 2008
...take direct action to end the fossil fuel empire

The International Rising Tide network and its allies are calling for a day of action against the fossil fuel industry on April 1st 2008 FOSSIL FOOLS DAY!

Roll up, roll up! The climate circus is in town. Confronted with melting ice caps, unprecedented species extinction, droughts and extreme weather, climate change threatens our very survival. The fools at the head of the fossil fuel empire continue to plunder the earth, with the governments as willing court jesters at their side.

They would have us believe that we can escape climate change with techno-fixes, market mechanisms and offset schemes - all technocratic acrobatics that distract us from the truth: the only real solution to climate change is to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

On April 1st, 2008, we're going to turn the tables and show them who the real fools are.

Target a local fossil fool - See the clowns investing in coal - The carbon offset contortionist or the oily strong man? and join with thousands around the world in taking one step closer to dismantling the fossil fuel industry. Find a fossil fool in your community and pull a prank that packs a punch.

If you are planning an open action get in touch with the Rising Tide in the country nearest you (links right), and if its a suprise action let us about it when it happens! And don't forget post to your local & climate indymedia.
