Call to action.

by Liz Elliott Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 1:36 PM

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!

C.I.C.L.E. is a Los Angeles based, ongoing and experimental project with its primary objective being the active promotion of the bicycle as a viable and responsible alternative mode of transportation.

BOYCOTT EXXON MOBIL

by wendianna Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 3:35 PM
takeactionnow@sbcglobal.net

Those of us who cannot bike or rollerskate everywhere and have to commute long distances because we live in big ol LA which had terrible public transpo.,

if you gotta buy gas., lets pick one fucker and not support them. The wealthiest oil company of all., not to mention the one with first dibbs on Iraq., EXXON MOBIL

Drive an extra 2 blocks to the Arco or the chevron or whoever., they are all evil., but boycotts are powerful things., and EXXONMOBIL is a good target.,

it would also cause gas prices to lower while taking a stand against the war.,

thanks., spread the word., and put this into effect.,

and RIDE A BIKE OR SKATE@@!!!#$$%^@^%@

Know one is asking...

by Every day Jody Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 4:07 PM

Know one is asking that you give up your car altogether. But everyone can lose the car at least once or twice a week. If your commute to work is 10 miles or less, then an average person in good health can make this commute in about the same time as a car in a high commute time bracket. I know this from experience. If you doddle...it might take you 10-15 minutes longer. But hey...now at least you don't have to waste your precious time at the gym.

If you can't make the commute to work, ride to the corner store, or to support your local coffe house.
It's not that much too ask...and the benefits are so far reaching.

If we just boycott one or two oil companies, won't the others just prosper?

Change your life.....Change the world!!!!

Bike, Bus, Rail, Skate...even if it's a segway...get on it...and lose the car...at least some of the time.

Public Trans

by duff Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 4:18 PM

I think that it is an LA urban myth that we have a terrible public transportation system. I recently had a friend down from SF and she told me that she thought our system was easier than BART...

What would be the point

by Kerry Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 4:18 PM

Oh come on, boycott one or two gas stations! What would that do but make their competitors get your money. Look it's not easy at first, but check out their site, I just did, and I am just going to start slow. Americans are often times not willing to make a sacrifice, even if it means the world suffers for it, they don't hate us because we are free, they hate us because we are selfish and wasteful, and our need to consume has enslaved them. I can't ride that much, I am way out of shape, but I can take the damn bus. It might be a hassle, but hell I gotta start waking up, I am not the only person on this planet.

Please do this, it will make gas cheaper for me

by We need cheaper gas Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 11:32 PM

I drive 100's of miles everday on my commute to work and I think this will be a great idea. GAs will become a lot more cheaper and when the war is over, it will get down to 50 cents a gallon and I'll be savig alot of money. After all of that oil begins to flow out of a free Iraq, it will be great and with you people not using any gas, there will be more for me to use.

Thank you so much for this idea

We need Cheaper GAs

by The GAs hog Wednesday, Mar. 26, 2003 at 11:41 PM

I drive many miles everday on my commute to work in my SUV and the price of gas is rediculous so I think that this is agood idea because the price of gas will go much lower and after the war is over, all of that delicious oil will come flowing out of a free Iraq. That will bring it down to about 50 cents a gallon. That means since you guys won't be using any, there will be more for me so for this, I thanki you. I also enjoy whale hunting and this will bring down the price of fuel for my boat.
