Oil and gas fuels capital- and resource-intensive transportation, mechanized agriculture and industry imposed on local communities in every corner of the earth by the World, Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organizations and the corporations and governments behind them. Control of oil rich regions around the world has been a key factor in US-led wars around the globe. And from Nigeria to Ecuador, Colombia, Burma and Richmond, California, the extraction, transport, refining and burning of fossil fuels has left an painful legacy of human rights abuse, militarization, environmental devastation, widespread cancer and health problems. Consumption of fossil fuels is also the cause of catastrophic climate instability (droughts, floods, rising sea levels and greater natural disasters). President Bush has openly stated that "protecting our oil interests" is behind the deadly multi-billion dollar "Plan Colombia" war on the Colombian people. This war includes massacres, widespread human rights violations, US military aid, aerial spraying of poison (fumigation), US training of Latin American soldiers at the School of the Americas, and that are fueling the violence in Colombia, devastating the environment, and displacing tens of thousands of Colombians. Everywhere people are resisting and constructing practical positive alternatives. A better world is possible and a global movement of movements is rising up to make it happen. Please join us.
