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.
This Sunday, your local pranksters will be in town to share their bag of
tricks for the Fossil Fools industry.  Want to plug in on April 1st? Here's
your chance!  We'll share the skills, resources, and give you all the info
you need for high-impact action.  Topics covered include consensus-based
decision making, what is direct action, security culture, basic guide to
roles in an action, strategies and tactics (i.e. blockades, demonstrations,
occupations, media stunts, phone/email/website/fax clogs), know-your-rights,
jail solidarity, media/messaging, health and safety, and affinity groups.

WHAT TO BRING: Water, food, and a friend!
