From Zach Burns ’14, Isabel Stern ’14, and Evan Weber ’13:
On Sunday, February 17, thousands of Americans will head to Washington, D.C. to make Forward on Climate the largest climate rally in history.
That means a fuckton of Wes-kids need to be there to make our voices heard and help the president start his second term with strong climate action by rejecting the Keystone XL Pipeline.
This is a big deal, and the more people we bring, the bigger it will be and the more fun we will have. Come to the UOC (University Organizing Center, between Beta and Eclectic) at 2pm on Sunday to find out all the deetz and make transportation and other logistical plans.
In 2009, sitting at a table with a bunch of young environmental organizers, President Obama told them: “Your job is to push me.” Unless we show him and the newly appointed Secretary of State John Kerry that lighting off one of the biggest carbon bombs in North America is a really, really, bad idea, he won’t have the political courage to reject this pipeline that climate activists, the media, and Congressional Republicans have turned into a huge political issue. So come to the meeting on Sunday, find out more about the action and the issues, and get pumped to move forward.
Date: Tomorrow, February 3rd
Place: University Organizing Center (between Beta and Eclectic)
