15 points to break with oil addiction

WELCOME ENERGY CRISIS



Communiqué

December 2006

1. Human addction to energy consumption has spiralled to an unsustainable

level in which oil is the hard drug of the global capitalist economy.

2. That this consumption is causing irreparable damage to the biosphere

and is pushing the planet into a climate collapse which condemns many

forms of life to extinction, among them probably the human species.

3. That the production and commercialization of fossil fuels worsens

social inequalities, supports dictatorial regimes and sparks off armed

conflicts around the world.

4. That oil is principally used to ensure the incessant flow of goods

worldwide, flowing the veins of capitalism.

5. That the oil corporations are anonymous financial conglomerates, legal

shields of speculators who act with impunity and as such allow those

responsible to evade legal process for demonstrable crimes against

humanity.

6. That the profits of these companies grow in proportion to how they can

increase oil addiction (in humanity), using dubious strategies like

blanket advertising, greenwash (promoting a false green image), and

political corruption.

We are decided:

7. To erradicate all kind of advertising (explicit or subliminal) of corporations that make profits generating climate change (oil companies, automotive, electric, petrochemical, airlines…).

8. To initiate legal actions Presidents and Board Memebers of the Oil

Corporations. The repeated mortal accidents, oil spills, violations to

human rights, invasion of native lands, are demonstrable crimes which must

be judged to prevent their repetition.

9. To investigate the responsability of the Petrochemical Industry for the

impacts on health caused by all their carcenogenic byproducts. To make

these companies finance the health costs of the sick, as well as the

management of toxic and plastic waste products.

10. The strengthen ties of solidarity with local victims of the oil

companies´ activities, publicizing the claims that are silenced by the

mass media sold out to corporate interests.

11. To set out on the pathhs towards individual and collective energy

autonomy, adoptingg and practisingg energy saving in everyday life and

startingg up community projects that produce solar and wind power on a

human scale.

12. To fight for good ad accessible public transport, closing the

airports, paralysing the construction of new roads and motorways,

reclaiming the city streets for the exclusive use of pedestrians, trams

and bicycles.

13. To push for a worldwide moratorium on car manufacture and the drilling

of new oil wells. It will be necessary to scrap the millions of cars and

lorries on thhe planet to bring a half to the extraction industry and

re-use the metal to construct trains, sailing shhips and bicycles.

14. To stop world trade, modifying radically our way of life and consumption.

15. To promote and accelerate a transition in energy use towards a post

oil way of life, accompanied with the necessary economic contraction to

get the human species back within thhe physical and ecologgical limits of

planet earth.

Shell kills, BP kills, Exxon kills
