ROLL YOUR OWN BLACKOUT THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER
JUNE 21, 2001 THURSDAY, 7-10pm worldwide, all time zones.
As an alternative to George W. Bush's energy policies and lack of emphasis
on efficiency, conservation and alternative fuels, there will be a voluntary
rolling blackout on the first day of summer, June 21 at 7pm-10pm in every
time zone (this will roll it across the planet). It's a simple protest and a
Turn out your lights from 7pm-10pm on June 21. Unplug whatever you can
unplug in your house. Light a candle, kiss and tell or not, take a stroll in
the dark, invent ghost stories, anything that's not electric - have fun in
the dark. Tell as many people as you can, your government representatives
and environmental contacts. Let them know we want global education,
participation and funding in conservation, efficiency and alternative fuel
efforts -- and an end to exploitation and misuse of the earth's resources.
Anyone knows that the Cheney-Bush team is blowing smoke when they tell us
that "... conservation can't help, it'll just be too expensive to implement
those technologies ..." While on the other hand, technology to develop and
deploy weapons to blow incoming ICBMs out of the sky is easy to come by?
Enjoy. And spread the word.
