Keep It In the Ground

SA-BreakFree-Action1

The American Ethical Union has shared an action alert with us regarding Break Free 2016:

May 4-15, 2016:  A global wave of mass actions will target the world’s most dangerous fossil fuel projects — to keep coal, oil and gas in the ground and accelerate the just transition to 100% renewable energy.

Targeted protest and actions of civil disobedience will take place at selected critical locations around the world.  Actions in the US will take place May 12-15 in Anacortes, WA; Albany, NY; Chicago, IL; Los Angeles, CA; Denver, CO; and Washington, DC.

For additional context, this short  movie, Disobedience, is both enlightening and inspiring.   You can participate in any of the upcoming global actions by becoming a Digital Witness.  As a digital witness, you will witness live coverage of the events you sign up for and amplify the action, sending messages of support and, perhaps, displaying what you witness in your own social media platforms.
