The last two weeks have been spectacular.
In Washington DC, phase one of the tar sands campaign has just come to an end, and 1,252 North Americans have been arrested in a massive civil disobedience campaign. This historic groundswell was focused on stopping the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline — but it also sent a larger message that people everywhere are willing to take bold action to move our planet beyond fossil fuels.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Doesn’t Speak for Me campaign was launched just a few weeks ago. But it has struck a nerve with numerous people and business owners around the nation and has been growing fast. (Plus, it’s connected to a pretty major, highly-supported organization, 350.org.)
Continuing on with our continuing coverage of and commentary on 350.org’s “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Doesn’t Speak for Me” campaign, news is that 350.org is partnering with the 10,000-strong Power Shift 2011 youth climate conference on Monday, April 18 in Washington, DC. You can reserve your spot there and keep up with news about the conference over on Facebook.
Nike, Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Levi Strauss, General Electric, General Motors, Shell, and other large international companies have opposed the US Chamber of Commerce, as well as a number of local chambers of commerce.
