UPDATE: Sasol eventually accepted the Fossil Fools Award 2009 at today’s protest. Sasol finally accepted the award only after shutting the gates and under the stern eye of the police.
SASOL Fossil Fools
Welcome to Sasol!
Below is an email conversation between Sasol and Earthlife. For reasons beyond us, Sasol does not want to accept the prestigious Fossil Fools Award 2009. Maybe next year…

Dear Ms. Lekalakala
I have noted your request below. I will not be available to receive the “award” nor will any other Sasol representative.
As with the last time we met, you and your team are welcome to use the public pavement, outside the Sasol building.
