Subject: March Speaking Tour: Sustainable Community and
          Declining Oil Stocks

Building Sustainable Community in Times of Declining Oil
Stocks Maritime Speaking Tour -  Fueled by Vegetable Oil
Late March-April, 2006

PEI organic farmer and Vietnam War Resister Gary Clausheide
will be touring the Maritimes in late March to discuss the
topic of "Building Sustainable Community in Times of
Declining Oil Stocks". The tour will travel to Halifax,
Sackville, Fredericton, and possibly additional locations,
with a Charlottetown event later in April.

Gary will explore the recent history of the Western world,
how we have been organized (economically, politically, and
socially), capitalism, socialism, and egalitarian democratic
theories and models from the past, the present, and for the
future. We will also discuss the reality of Peak Oil,
declining availability and rising prices, as well as
potential impacts on society, economics, and politics.

We will explore what sustainable community means and how we
can build it (eg. decentralization, autonomy, cooperative
decision-making, participatory economics and participatory
democracy), including one possible model for an intentional
community.

We will be using a diesel car for the tour that has been
converted to run on waste vegetable oil (used deep-fryer
oil). We will also offer a semi-formal workshop on vegetable
oil fueled vehicles and the diesel conversion process,
including an examination of the converted vehicle used for
the tour.

This tour is being organized by Earth Action, a Prince
Edward Island based organization that works for
environmental education and action. We do not accept funding
from governments or corporations. If you'd like us to come
to your community, or want to help support or promote the
Tour, please get in touch.
