Ready to take the gas right out of the war machine?
You don't have to block a door, or chain yourself to a tree. You don't have to wear plastic cuffs behind your back, or sport a black eye for your acts of resistance. No... you can do something much simpler and long lasting. You can scare the hell out of them with an act of defiance that they would never dream you would commit to doing
Ride your bike...to work... to the store... to get coffee...to meet friends. Each time you do, you stop funding the corporations that commit human and environmental atrocities with the simple act of not buying their product...oil. The prospect of losing money scares them more than anything else. If you're afraid that this will be a sacrifice, don't be! You will be doing it for others, and you won't be doing it alone. Each ride will have an impact. The powers that be are run by greed and the drive to exploit for huge profits. You don't have to be a part of it anymore!
