Fossil Fools Day: April 1st No Blood for Oil
16 Mar 2005
Take the “No Blood for Oil” slogan to the Car Corporations!

International Day of Intervention at Ford Motor Company Dealers!
Friday, 01 April 2005

***FOSSIL FOOLS DAY CALL TO ACTION***

How many more US soldiers will have to die in wars for oil? How much more greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate chaos can the earth tolerate? How many more rainforests will we allow to be converted into oil fields? How many more human rights abuses can we bear?

How much longer can Ford Motor Company get away with having the worst fuel economy among America's major automakers?

We can't afford to wait any longer for change. The time is NOW to break America's oil addiction and Jumpstart Ford, the worst gas-guzzler in the industry

Join us on Friday, April 1— Fossil Fools Day —for an International Day of Action to intervene in Ford's oil addiction.

Here's what you can do to help us ensure a strong economy, a safe environment, a secure country, and a more peaceful world.

1. Join with communities around the world and organize an action at your nearest Ford dealership on April 1, Fossil Fools Day.

2. Join the Adopt-a-Dealer program! By enlisting Ford dealers as allies we can communicate to the corporate honchos that there's a demand for fuel-efficient and zero emission vehicles.

3. Spread the word about Fossil Fools Day by distributing No Blood for Oil leaflets at your local peace rally on March 19 or 20.

The first 50 local groups who commit to participating in the Adopt-a-Dealer campaign will receive an eye-catching pre-stenciled banner you can use at your dealership actions.

For tips on organizing a dealership action, and to receive postcards and helpful How-to kits, please contact:
