Bio fools day is today!

From Tuesday the 15th April, all forecourts will be required by law to sell only fuel which is blended with 2.5% biofuel. This will have devastating consequences on climate, ecosystems, food prices and human rights, with people being violently evicted from their land. EU targets are set to increase to 10% by 2020.

Biofuelwatch and Campaign Against Climate Change have organised a protest outside Downing Street on the 15th April - April Biofools Day - at 6pm. There will be an inspiring and informative panel of speakers. Please come along and tell your friends!

We see this day of action as a really important part of building a grassroots movement against agrofuels. There will be events happening around the UK. If you don't live in or near London, you can join a protest nearer where you live:

If there isn't an event near you, please do contact us and we'll do our best to put you in touch with others who live locally and see what we can pull together.

Two final reminders: if you haven't yet signed the MP letter, you can do so via 'MPs Food Crisis' on the homepage or directly here: http://www.biofuelwatch.org.uk/mp-Mar2008.php

If you wish to make a donation to our work – which we very much appreciate - you can do so via 'donations' on the home page, or directly here,

Thanks, your support makes all the difference!
