MARCH 2, 2009 | CAPITOL CLIMATE ACTION

Martin Sheen, Paul Hawken, James Hansen and others invite citizens to stand with them against coal

Make history March 2, 2009 in Washington, D.C.

Be part of the largest mass civil disobedience for the climate in U.S. history.

You know there is a climate crisis. You know we have to solve it. It’s time to take our action to the next level.

With a new administration and a new Congress, we have a window of opportunity. But we have to open it — together.

On March 2, join thousands of people in a multi-generational act of civil disobedience at the Capitol Power Plant — a plant that powers Congress with dirty energy and symbolizes a past that cannot be our future. Let’s use this as a rallying cry for a clean energy economy that will protect the health of our families, our climate, and our future.

This will be a peaceful demonstration, carried out in a spirit of hope and not rancor. We will be there in our dress clothes, and ask the same of you.

It’s time to take a stand on global warming. We can’t wait any longer for the changes we KNOW we can, and must, make today.

Action details

The initial rally for the Capitol Climate Action will meet on March 2nd at 1:00pm in Spirit of Justice Park (C St. SW and Capitol St SE, two blocks west of Capitol South Metro — view map). We’ll be staging at Spirit of Justice Park for a brief rally, then moving towards the Capitol Power Plant facility. We expect thousands of people to participate, with large numbers risking arrest in a peaceful act of civil disobedience. Many more will choose not to engage in civil disobedience, and will be part of the overall event and rally.
