ROLL YOUR OWN BLACK OUT ~
THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER
JUNE 21, 2001 THURSDAY EVENING
7 - 10 p.m. worldwide, all time zones
In protest of 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 7 p.m. - 10 p.m. in any time zone (this will roll it across the planet).
It's a simple protest and a symbolic act. Turn out your lights from 7-10 p.m. on June 21. Unplug whatever you can unplug in your house. Light a candle to the sun god, kiss and tell, make love, tell ghost stories, do something instead of watching television, have fun in the dark.
Forward this email as widely as possible, including your government representatives and environmental contacts. Let them know we want global education, participation and funding in conservation, efficiency and alternative fuel effortsand an end to over-exploitation and misuse of the earth's resources.
