30,000 Young People Declare October 19th Energy Independence Day! Oil prices are skyrocketing. Conflicts are mounting. Mercury is causing brain damage. Global warming is hitting home. Russia is ready to sign Kyoto, but the United States is nowhere to be seen. This October our generation is ready to stand up and declare a clean energy future! On October 19th, two weeks before the election, the youth of the United States are challenging all candidates for elected office and leaders of our institutions to lay out their plan for a complete transition beyond dirty energy. Sign the Declaration of Independence from Dirty Energy and help us reach our goal of 30,000 youth declaring our freedom on October 19th, Energy Independence Day! What else can you do? 1. Meet with your group and start planning an action for October 19th. If you don't have a group use this day to launch your campaign! 2. The Declaration is youth-written but made for everybody to sign! Send this message to all of your friends and networks with a personal message on top. 3. Go to for action ideas, tools for your action, and to add your action, however big or small! It's important to get as many people as you can to sign the Declaration right away so we can call our generation to action with the power of our collective voices! Together we will fuel the clean energy revolution! -- Crystal, Nick, Kathy, Billy, Kim, Josh, Kassie, Arthur, Lindsay Energy Action political team Energy Action is a powerful new North American coalition of 17 student networks and progressive organizations committed to leveraging our collective power and creating change for a clean, efficient, just and renewable energy future. The coalition facilitated 130 youth and student-led actions across the US and Canada on Fossil Fools Day, April 1st, 2004 to prove that young people would no longer be fooled by fossil fuels and dirty energy. On October 19th, two weeks before the general election, thousands of young voters will celebrate the 63rd anniversary of the first wind turbine to go online in the U.S. by staging a national intervention in the United States' addiction to dirty energy.  [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]
