Want to tell the Board of Esso/Exxon/Mobil personally to stop blocking efforts to address global warming? A picture is worth a thousand emails!

Announcing the Attack of the Speech Bubbles: a global effort to make the world's number one environmental enemy understand just how many people are saying "No" to climate change, "No" to future oil wars, and "No" to pollution by saying "No" to Esso/Exxon/Mobil.

It's easy: upload a picture of yourself at our StopEsso site. Then select a "speech bubble" with a message to the oil barons and place it on your picture. Your photo will be stored with a worldwide gallery of images which will then be shown to Esso/Exxon/Mobil board members and shareholders, turned into billboards, posters, email, and projections. Our goal is to make Esso/Exxon/Mobil stop interfering with efforts to stop global warming --we need you to help give that message a global face. Let them know that you won't buy Esso/Exxon/Mobil products until they start buying in to efforts to save the planet.

to discuss this campaign.


Springtime (in the Northern Hemisphere), and an activist's thoughts turn to...

making sure that resistance to Esso/Exxon/Mobil multiplies like bunnies. Send an Easter-themed E-card to your waskally wadical friends:



The Greenpeace ship Esperanza:


is on its way to confront large trawlers and dangerous oil tankers in the rich but sensitive Barents Sea. Please help the 13-nation-crewed Esperanza to stop ocean crime in the Arctic - send a letter to the Norwegian Prime Minister Bondevik!



The Webby Academy has nominated www.Greenpeace.org as one of the five best activist sites on the web! If you don't know the Webbies, they're the Oscars of the website world, and this is a great honour for all 128,000 of us cyberactivists. There are two ways to win: direct selection by the Academy, and the popular vote in the "Peoples Choice" competition. We're shamelessly asking you to vote for the Greenpeace site for a number of reasons. For one, more cyberactivists: a Webby win would bring more people to the site, more cyberactivists into the fold, and lend more weight to every campaign we run. Secondly, everyone who stood up against the invasion of Iraq is feeling deflated when we see the horrors of a war we all feel we were powerless to stop. But don't let anyone tell you that the peace activists lost. Activism has built a base that's simply not going to go away, and its deepest concerns, far more to do with US unilateralist ambitions and the concept of "preventive" war than Iraq, have simply been confirmed. It's more important now than ever to show that activism can win, and peace is the real "People's Choi
