Hey Bloggers, is tomorrow Earth Day in the world, or just North America? I received another one of those Todd Eaton emails weekly calendar protests schedules today that seem to be all protest all the time, and it had the following event listed:
Apologies for the short notice but we just found out that ExxonMobil is sponsoring tomorrow's Go Green Earth Day Festival in McCarren Park. ExxonMobil is also responsible for the largest oil spill in America's history, larger than the Exxon Valdez, just meters away from where the festival will be taking place!
Other festival sponsors include BP America, Waste Management, and Forest City Ratner Company (responsible for the Atlantic Yards project). These companies are no friend to our community, and no friend to the environment.
Please join the Greenpoint SuperFUNd SuperFriendz in taking immediate action.
Join us at McCarren Park for a protest rally. We're calling on you to help reclaim Earth Day from the greenwashers and reclaim the oil from McCarren Park!
Reclaim the Oil!
Saturday, April 19, 11:00 am
Meet at Driggs and N. 12th St.

There's oil a plenty underfoot and we oil men will be on hand with rig, drills, and buckets to reclaim our oil and our earth (day).
Dear Exxon, We Drink Your Milkshake!
The term is generally used when significantly more money or time has been spent advertising being green (that is, operating with consideration for the environment), rather than spending resources on environmentally sound practices. This is often portrayed by changing the name or label of a product, to give the feeling of nature, for example putting an image of a forest on a bottle of harmful chemicals. Environmentalists often use greenwashing to describe the actions of energy companies, which are traditionally the largest polluters.
About the Greenpoint Exxon Mobil Oil Spill:
Between 17 and 30 million gallons of oil lie beneath North Brooklyn.
And again, today on this day there was an earth quake in middle midwest america. And that reminds me of an article I read a few weeks ago about scientists hearing noise in the ocean, like earthquakes that have never been heard before or something..... Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
