|Petition to End World Wide Fossil Fuel Subsidies
Posted: 16 Jun 2012 11:42 PM PDT
The Rio Earth Summit starts tomorrow, Monday, June 18, and there is a very important message we can be sending the world’s leaders there. That is we demand an end to government subsidies paid to polluting fossil fuel producers. Get on board with the Twitter Storm which will display, in public sites world wide, the tweets being sent making this demand. Simply sign up and tweet from 6PM Sydney time tomorrow.
There is a gathering at Portobello Cafe, No.3 Circular Quay – just in front of Sydney Opera House to watch the tweets unfold. If you’re available in the evening, feel free to drop by and say hi! Food, wine and beer for supporters are discounted at 20% 🙂 Here’s the link to it’s facebook Event page.
