Protesting for the Planet - Sun. 2/17 Washington D.C.


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 16 February 2013

by Debra Sweet                 Tuesday night we heard from Barack Obama that climate change demands immediate action, but the solution appears to also be the problem:

"The good news is, we can make meaningful progress on this issue while driving strong economic growth.  I urge this Congress to pursue a bipartisan, market-based solution to climate change, like the one John McCain and Joe Lieberman worked on together a few years ago."

Wednesday, 48 protesters were arrested in front of the White House, including the executive director and president of the Sierra Club (right), ending their 120 year ban on civil disobedience as an organization. This was a warm-up to the weekend, as people gather in Chicago for a climate crisis conference (I'll be speaking, and hope to see you there), and on Sunday in a mass march and rally in DC against the Keystone XL pipeline:

World Can't Wait will have a "Humanity and the Planet Come First" contingent at the protest on Sunday February 17 in Washington, DC. Contact
