Put the fun between your legs

    Here is a cool video put out about The Bike Bloc, a “new tool of civil disobedience,” which will be unleashed on December 16, the RECLAIM POWER day of action in Copenhagen. According to their website, Climate Camp and The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination have teamed up to make this “pedal powered resistance machine” with hundreds of recycled bikes. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this thing in action. We’ll of course post a video as soon as one is available.

    Also, the Guardian has put out this helpful calendar of actions for the climate summit, which I’m sure is far from complete.
