Organizer/AuthorAmanda *$
‘Rising Pirates’ a bay-area group of climate campaigners and culture-jammers are broadcasting an ‘alternative’ schedule on April 1st, including:

• The science and issues behind climate change
• Direct action ideas to topple the fossil fuel empire
• The G20 meeting, which takes place this week in London

“The mainstream media is not covering the issues we want to learn about and discuss. So we’re taking direct action and broadcasting for ourselves.” said a spokesperson from Rising Pirates.

“San Francisco residents will be able to watch the programs by tuning into Channel 13 on their analogue TV sets from 2pm on April 1st. Since the digital TV switchover, you can purchase an analogue TV for an extremely reasonable price – they are currently available for sale for as little as $1 on street corners throughout the city.”

This transmission is part of Fossil Fools – a global day of action on Climate Change.
