I would like to invite you all to the Oct 11-15th People vs. Fossil Fuels Action in Washington DC.
This action is organized by Build Back Fossil Free, and is important because we will be asking Biden/Harris Administration to:
1) Stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure projects, and
2) Declare a climate emergency and put people to work building sustainable energy projects, and clean up environmental messes in BIPOC neighborhoods.
It's time to act!
I am heading up a contingent called Yogis4ClimateJustice, which will be hooking in with a larger group called Green Faith. https://greenfaith.org/
This organization is a group of people of different faiths coming together to stand together for climate justice, and are also part of Build Back Fossil Free. Anyone can join us, and I will guide you through the process if you are new to this kind of action. We will show up with love and inner strength and courage.
All you need to do is get to DC and find a place to stay.
Yogis4ClimateJustice and Green Faith will be showing up on the evening of Oct 10th, and will take part in protests and civil disobedience on Monday-Wednesday. There is training for non-violent civil disobedience every evening, and people can choose whether they want to participate in the protests or whether they want to participate in the civil disobedience actions.
Monday is Indigenous People's Day, and that day's action will be lead by Indigenous leaders from around the country who are on the frontlines of protests to stop fossil fuel and other environmentally damaging projects.
Tuesday, clergy from around the country will participate in civil disobedience with our support.
And Wednesday, those who are ready can participate in civil disobedience, taking a stand for the earth and all of us!
There are actions on Thursday and Friday as well, however the Green Faith and Yogis4ClimateJustice will not be formally participating. Of course you can still participate in these actions if you wish.
You can choose 1 day to show up or multiple days.
