Help build the Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit by spreading the word for the Jan. 18 Chicago area launch! Please forward the email below to your Chicago area contacts and post the facebook event on your page!
Last week I wrote to introduce you to the Global Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit, a grassroots action campaign that begins with a mobilization this spring: Earth Day to May Day: 10 Days to Change Course. It provides coordinated action across fronts of struggle and national borders to harness the transformative power we already possess as a thousand separate movements sweeping the planet, rising up against the global assault on our shared economy, ecology, peace and democracy.
Thanks to your enthusiastic response and support, momentum is building rapidly.
This Saturday Night, activists, including many Green Shadow Cabinet members, will speak at a gathering in Chicago to launch the project and start building a peacefully rebellious Earth Day to May Day Campaign.
If you’re in the greater Chicago area, please join us. If you’re not in the area, please consider forwarding the email below to your Chicago regional contacts, or post the facebook event on your page.
Thanks for all you do for People, Planet, Peace over Profit!
Let the Convergence begin!
Upward, Jill Stein
Please forward freely
You’re invited to join Tim DeChristopher, Richard Monje, Cheri Honkala, Sherri Mitchell, Chris Williams, yours truly, and speakers from a broad spectrum of grassroots justice movements on Saturday, January 18, 7:30 PM in Chicago, 333 S. Ashland Ave.
Help launch a groundbreaking action campaign that will take place this spring across the US and beyond: Earth Day to May Day, 10 Days to Change Course!
During these 10 days, communities across the globe will rally to support local fronts of struggle as we build a united front to push for Emergency Green Economic Transformation – a solution even bigger than the crisis barrelling down on us – including universal jobs, healthcare, education, food and housing security, economic and political democracy, demilitarization and an end to fossil fuel use by 2030.
Together we can harness the transformative power we already possess as a thousand separate movements sweeping the globe, rising up against the global assault on our shared economy, ecology, peace and democracy.
Chicago will play a pivotal role in this campaign! We need your help to organize events that will lift up local struggles, while building collaboration across movements and national borders.
Join us on Jan. 18th in Chicago. Help launch Earth Day to May Day action starting now. Let the Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit begin!
Hope to see you there!
