Closed for Total Rethink: Oil Actions this weekend in SF
Friday, June 11th, 2010 a group of community actioneers converged on the Fell street Arco station, a subsidiary of BP, with signs and plants.
Their mission was to stop commerce for even a moment in the wake of the unstoppable oil leak.
They armed themselves with trees and plants, and thoughts enscribed on signs about the trio of problems culminating on the corner of Fell and Divisadero. Their three laments were the environmental disaster in the gulf, the rate of consumption of oil products by our society, and the dangerous traffic inflicting the bike lane on the main Fell st arterial.
They managed to stop commerce and block the entrance for 3 hours.

My next update will be about the HAIR RAISING Party that kicked butt.
Hair Booms Are IN!!
Get your local salons to gather their shampooed hair for boom stuffing.
Sign up for Matter of Trust (http://matteroftrust.org)
*This will boost the political body of a renewable resource that is #1 in oil absorbency! Sign up even if you don't collect hair. This is a numbers game.
Make hair booms to send directly to affected areas.
The more we soak up, the less there is to deal with.
BP is the criminal in charge of the crime scene.
We will not stand by and wait for an apology.
*****More HAIR RAISING efforts will be coming soon. This is an ongoing scheme. The Derailleurs are streamlining information and relief efforts. More to be announced soon. Send any volunteer ideas to us. bayareaderailleurs(at)gmail dot com*******
