I wanted to put in one last plug for Monday, March 2nd's Capital Climate Action, which begins at 1PM at Spirit Park of Justice (C St. SW and Capitol St SE, two blocks west of Capitol South Metro):
Join thousands of people in a multi-generational act of civil disobedience at the Capitol Power Plant — a plant that powers Congress with dirty energy and symbolizes a past that cannot be our future. Let’s use this as a rallying cry for a clean energy economy that will protect the health of our families, our climate, and our future.
This will be a peaceful demonstration, carried out in a spirit of hope and not rancor. We will be there in our dress clothes, and ask the same of you.
It’s time to take a stand on global warming. We can’t wait any longer for the changes we KNOW we can, and must, make today.
I will be there. I know some of you have questioned civil disobedience as a methodology on this blog. But to me, this is part of the individual action we've discussed here--living a life in line with your values.
