U.S.: October 20-22: No War, No Warming calls for massive intervention in Washington, DC
ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, WE WILL TAKE ACTION.
Let Us Know You Are Coming to DC
Join us in Washington, DC, the Nation’s Capitol, to speak truth to power! Join in planning powerful actions so that we can have the greatest impact on U.S. and global policy makers.
October 20-22: No War, No Warming is calling for a massive intervention in Washington, DC, with solidarity actions around the US and internationally. On Saturday and Sunday we will be organizing trainings in D.C. for nonviolent direct action / civil disobedience and holding spokes council meetings to plan and coordinate our actions.
The intention of No War, No Warming is to hold Congress accountable and show the world that we will not sit still; we will hold an intervention by taking over Capitol Hill on a day that Congress is in session. We will be putting our bodies on the line to say enough is enough. We will be taking positive action to make visible the cost of these failed government policies and to creatively manifest the world we know is possible.
Until our Government representatives change course off the path of destruction, we have no choice but to get in the way.
Some of us may gather in the intersections and set up windmills or solar panel blockades. Others may hold people’s assemblies in front of the doors or create a bicycle bloc in front of a parking garage. Actions may bring to light the cost of war and climate change through die-ins or cough-ins. Others may sit in silent prayer, or form a chorus of resistance in the streets.
Across the country and world the message of No War, No Warming may be taken to federal buildings, US embassies and directly to the offices of corporate profiteers.
Start talking now with your family, friends and co-workers about how you might intervene to stop the destruction of the planet and embody the world we know is possible. Form a group and make plans to send some folks to DC where we will demonstrate with our numbers and our direct intervention our opposition to our government’s “business as usual” approach to climate change and war.
Let’s show the American people, our government and the world that we are taking immediate action to STOP this war and break our addiction to fossil fuels, SHIFT funding to support a sustainable economy and GO green, just and renewable!
Join the Intervention! Please use these online tools to organize your trip and tell us that you’re coming. Find a place to stay or coordinate a carpool with our online housing and ride boards. Let’s help each other get to Washington D.C. to tell Congress what we want!
