Bike Ride Against the G8 and Climate Change/Int'l Day of Action
Solidarity with Heiligendamm, Deutschland.

Use pedal power to challenge oil addiction, to show solidarity with
anti-G8 mass mobilizations in Germany and resist the polluting economic
and political system of the G8. As the megalomaniac G8 leaders meet in
police-state Germany, behind fences, cops and soldiers, intent on
leading us further towards catastrophic and irreversible climate chaos,
we must shout, scream and roar 'no more'. Take action to challenge the
fossil fuelled madness of the G8 governments and their oil addicted
corporate buddies. Actions targeting the root causes of climate change
are planned in other G8 countries and around the world on this day.

We know the terrifying statistics: a million species extinct by 2050, 19
of the 20 hottest years on record since 1980, Greenland and Antarctica
melting, droughts, floods, famines ... the G8 have met for over 30 years
to further a global system that is destroying our planet and our future
while they line their pockets, and at the same time stage fake public
relations promises to confuse us. This global system is at the root of
our ecological and social problems; lack of heath care, housing and
education, war, more prisons, the rich getting richer, low wages and
lousy jobs, pollution, and attacks on immigrant, worker and civil
rights. Meanwhile, island countries disappear and hundreds of thousands
die as a result of the freak weather conditions caused by their
irrational and uncontrollable obsession with never ending economic
growth.

June 8 International Day of Action Against Climate Change and the G8 has
been called by the International Rising Tide Network.
