Oct7 - Idle No More: San Francisco Federal Trade Commission

We are IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE IDLE NO MORE MASS CALL TO ACTION ON OCTOBER 7TH: Michael Froman, a top US Trade Official with the Federal Trade Commission, is pressuring the European Union to accept purchase of tar sands in violation of the EU's own environmental regulations. With only 5 to 10 years (according Kumi Naidoor) to save humanity and our animal brethren from environmental disaster due to the fossil fuel industry, we must rise up in protest against our own government's movement toward disaster.

"Environmental groups in the U.S. and the European Union are worried that Froman, the chief trade official for the United States, has been quietly working to pressure the EU to make it easier for U.S. refiners to sell oil from the tar sands on the European market. They say Froman is pushing his EU counterparts to weaken environmental guidelines related to greenhouse gas emissions in order to facilitate easier oil exports.

The European Commission has set an overall goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 20 percent below 1990 levels by 2020."
