Biofuels to steal Eurovision’s thunder?

People following this weekend’s Eurovision finals may get a biofuels-driven Thunderclap mega-tweet if enough activists sign on. The Enough Food IF campaign is recruiting 180,000 Twitter followers for Saturday evening’s broadcast.

If enough people sign on, Thunderclap will tweet the supporters’ message that biofuels used in Eurovision countries consume the equivalent of enough food for 144 million people for a year.

The Eurovision finals offer a rare opportunity to reach an audience across Europe with a message that reframes popular notions of food and farming.

The Enough Food IF campaign recently organised this event that was addressed by UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food.
