We did double duty today at the #COP21 climate talks! First we helped organize a rally right in the heart of the green zone we told you about earlier with our allies at Corporate Accountability International to kick big polluters OUT of the climate talks. Later in the afternoon, we sat down for some one-on-one time with the god-parents of the modern environmental […]

Yesterday, as we gathered to wish the wold a Bon Voyage for the talks, emotions were high for many reasons, starting with the location of the summit, Paris, France. Here in one of the greatest cities in the world, peaceful citizens were struck by calamitous events that took […]

Some things are just morally wrong. Like when Walmart, the biggest private employer in America, owned by one of the wealthiest families in the world, refuses to pay their employees enough to feed their families. Or when President Obama gives Walmart an award for climate action, even though after promising to clean up their act, Walmart uses more coal than ever. Even […]

I’ve been looking for these words. failing to find them under others’ writings, under the things someone else said last Friday or since about the shooting in Paris that took 129 lives and wounded even more. About the bombings the day before, or the shooting in Kenya the day after. About the idea of violence and bloodshed and hate and […]

We won, y’all!“This victory is no less sweet for the movement, or for our common home and climate because it was a long time coming.” Said Executive Director Drew Hudson, “There is much more work to do, much of it in Paris, as we work to keep fossil fuels in the ground and build a just, clean energy future for […]
