I’m the new biofuels campaigner at ActionAid UK. I look forwards to working with you in the future.
I thought you might be interested to see a new spoof video that ActionAid UK have just produced to raise public awareness of biofuels policy and to increase support for our petition calling for the UK government and European Commission to end their support for biofuels. It would be great if you could share the video around your networks, on Facebook and twitter etc.
The video highlights the absolute lunacy of biofuels policy, showing two hapless campaigners trying to drum up support for a new spoof pro-biofuel campaign called ‘Drive Aid’ to the unsuspecting London public. In an uncomfortable parody of current UK biofuels policy, their campaign calls for “taking food out of greedy African’s mouths, and putting it into the petrol tanks of our cars”.
Luckily those they approach on London’s streets don’t share their vision! Watch ‘Drive Aid’ to see more. I hope you like it!
