Moving Planet Philadelphia: A Change in Plans!
About The Event
Many of you have expressed your interest about an action in Philadelphia and an event description (Climate Satyagraha) that was posted on this Moving Planet site sometime ago. That description ought to have been taken down.
For better or worse, that Center City event is not happening. The groups that had initially come together to plan it decided to put their energy elsewhere – into running climate-focused campaigns that took all of their energy.
So, for all those in the Philadelphia area with a passion for Moving Planet, we suggest you participate in (and enjoy the heck out) of the Manayunk Eco-Arts Festival. It will be an amazing event (not least because Gasland director, Josh Fox, is being honored there) and details can be found at: http://www.moving-planet.org/events/us/philadelphia/1660.
Those interested in the nonviolent direct action focus that was in the Center City event description are invited to do the following:
· * Express your interest in an organizing meeting in October by sending an email to Michael Gagne, Eco-Justice Organizer for Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. firstname.lastname@example.org.
· * Check out The Earth Quaker Action Team and their campaign to stop mountaintop removal coal-mining. http://eqat.wordpress.com/
· * Get/Stay involved in the critical work to stop the Tar Sands pipeline (Keystone XL).
Sign-up to be part of the next phase of organizing at: http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/o/2133/p/salsa/web/common/public/signup?signup_page_KEY=5976
There will also be several Philadelphia-area discussions led by activists who participated in the epic Tar Sands action in DC. These report-backs can be located at http://events.tarsandsaction.org/weareone/events/search/state/PA.
We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience and for the lateness of this message. We hope that your Moving Planet day is inspiring and meaningful and we look forward to working with you in the next steps of our work toward clean energy and a just economy.
