PAST EVENTS

Uphold Paris, Uphold MAs Climate Legacy

Uphold Paris, Uphold MA's Climate Legacy

Saturday November 18th - 10:30am - Saturday November 18th - 12:00pm

Boston Common (directly behind the Robert Gould Shaw & the 54th Regiment Memorial, across from the Massachusetts State House) Map

HOW WILL YOU BE REMEMBERED?
WHAT WILL YOUR CLIMATE LEGACY BE?

Join us on November 18th to make history -- literally. During this interactive, inspiring, and family-friendly event, we'll record in a Time Capsule what Bay Staters love and are fighting to protect from climate change. We'll hold up the people and places most at risk from climate change and we'll ask Governor Baker to leave a climate legacy we can all be proud of by banning new fossil fuel infrastructure and committing us to a 100% renewable energy future!

============== COMPLETE DETAILS =================

THE SITUATION:
This November, world leaders are gathering to decide what happens next now that Trump has pulled out of the Paris climate agreement. This is a historic moment, and a chance for all of us to reckon with our position on climate change. We need to send a message to the world that the United States will keep moving forward, even as Trump tries to drag us backwards.

TAKE ACTION: THE CLIMATE LEGACY TIME CAPSULE PROJECT
On November 18th, we are dedicating a “Climate Legacy Time Capsule” in Boston to mark this moment. (Yes! A real Time Capsule! Check it out: bit.ly/2z3X8fM). It will be opened in 2067, fifty years from now, so our children and grandchildren may know how we responded to the climate threat when it mattered most.

HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE:
We ask that you bring to the event:
-An object (small enough to fit in your palm) representing "what you love and want to protect in the face of climate change" and/or pollution.
-A letter to the future (here are some prompts to help bit.ly/2h30Vyv).

Your letters and objects will get archived in the Time Capsule and leave a legacy of how the people of today are fighting to protect the health, safety and well-being of future generations.

Learn more at: www.climatetimecapsule.org

HOW GOVERNOR BAKER CAN PARTICIPATE:
You, Charlie Baker, have until Nov. 18th to do your part by signing an Executive Order to block new fossil fuel projects in our state. In addition to limiting climate change, this policy would transform Massachusetts for the better by ending sickening air and water pollution, and leading the way toward the 100% renewable energy future that will create thousands of good jobs.

If you meet our request, you are invited to join us on the 18th and contribute a letter to the time capsule. We would love nothing more than for you to stand alongside us, and be remembered as somebody who finally did the right thing.

If you refuse, we will record where you stand in the time capsule, and you will leave a legacy as just another cynical politician who fell far short. Your own descendents will have trouble fathoming how you could have done so little to protect them, when so much was needed.

It’s not too late to leave a different legacy. You have until November 18.

Reclaiming Our Future event #3. Protest Rally in Springfield
Stand Up, Charlie!
THURSDAY, Nov 16 12:15-12:45
-in front of State Office Building 436 Dwight St. Springfield.

We'll be showing up outside Gov Baker's Springfield office at lunchtime. We protest in tandem with actions that have been taking place at the Boston State House for weeks. These actions are escalating this week as the UN Climate talks take place in Bonn. We are asking Gov. Baker to #standUpCharlie and lead on climate.
We'll bring some signs and we need people to hold those, or bring your own.

GOV BAKER: don't saddle us with the DIRTY TRUMP POWER PLAN
- no pipeline tax
- no new pipelines
- ensure climate justice
- a rapid and just transition to the clean energy economy
- clean energy for all

To view our letter to Gov Baker and the executive order, look here:
climateactionnowma.org/reclaiming-our-future/

Our Governor, Charlie, Baker signed Massachusetts up for the Climate Alliance of 15 states in June, but his policies regarding new gas pipelines and the pipeline tax are incompatible with that gesture. We simply can not build new pipelines that lock us into the Trump Dirty Power Plan for 30 years and at the same time say that we are doing our part to fix climate breakdown.

We're angry but filled with hope due to the growing people's movements. We know that the more people complain about dangerous Trump Dirty Power Plan, the more legislators will take notice. We need to remind everyone that we are not going away. We are not going to let them quietly engage in this wanton intergenerational theft and disregard of people's health and safety.

We are RECLAIMING OUR FUTURE.
There is no planet B. Action is necessary.

Final Baker Stand In

Final Baker Stand In

Thursday November 16th - 12:00pm - Thursday November 16th - 2:00pm

Massachusetts State House
24 Beacon St
Boston, MA  02108 Map

This is it.

We started with four people coming once/week to Governor Baker's office. Now, 30-50 people have been coming five days/week to ask the Governor to lead on climate and stop new gas infrastructure.

After 10 weeks of increasing the pressure on Charlie Baker to put an end to fossil fuel infrastructure, we will stand outside of his office for one final push before the conclusion of the UN climate conference in Bonn, Germany. We want to show our strength in numbers and have at least hundreds of people there as we stand in solidarity. Will you join us?

Since this is the day before the #COP23 negotations end in Germany, we are hoping to "escalate the intensity" of this action to ensure that our voices are heard. It's time for Governor Baker to demonstrate real leadership on climate!

Programming will take place from 12PM-2PM, but you are welcome to stay the full afternoon if you are so inspired!

The River Cried, "Mni W'Coni!"
(26 min., 2017)
Q&A after with director Jehann El-Bisi!
FREE

"The River Cried, 'Mni W'Coni!'" is a deeply personal, and emotionally evocative testimony, touching upon subjects of genocide, beauty, and love; found while serving to protect the water, on the front lines, in Standing Rock, North Dakota, in the Autumn of 2016. Jehann El-Bisi, was inspired by her mother, descendant of Lakota, and a tireless activist for water protection, at an early age, felt spiritually called to revisit those lessons, and commitments, to protect people, and the water, at the cost of one's life if necessary. Art Desmarais, a U.S. Army Veteran, shared the transformational experience with Jehann, by standing with the people, to serve to protect the water, in Standing Rock. The film is an invitation to explore some of the messages given by the Lakota people, as guiding principals, in an age of struggle for sustainability, environmental justice, and decolonization.

Wopila Tanka!
Thank you very much!
Mitakuye Oyasin,

Jehann El-Bisi is a peace activist, educator, and artist, who has an earned doctorate in Language, Literacy and Culture from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Art Desmarais is a veteran of the United States Army, published author, and peace activist, who has walked with Jehann on Peace walks led by Buddhist Nuns and Monks of the Nipponzan Myohoji order from Japan. Together they serve currently as partners in social justice work, as documentary film makers, for solidarity efforts for the protection of water worldwide.

Robbie Leppzer, is editor of The River Cried, "Mni W'Coni!", and a local documentary film maker, and founder of Turning Tide Productions in Wendell, Massachusetts.

Youth Day of Action

Tuesday November 7th - 3:30pm - Tuesday November 7th - 5:30pm

Massachusetts State House
24 Beacon St
Boston, MA  02108 Map

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker needs to hear from the youth movement! Although he has promised to uphold the Paris Climate Agreement, Governor Baker is trying to push through new fossil fuel infrastructure that would further damage our climate. We need our governor to stand up to big polluters and protect our future. That’s why we are demanding that Governor Baker sign an executive order to effectively ban any new fossil fuel infrastructure and to accelerate renewable energy.

Let's make our voices heard!

WHEN: November 7th at 3:30PM
WHERE: In front of the Massachusetts State House

Join us as we gather at the State House to ask the Governor what his climate legacy will be. Will he stand up for our future, or will he side with big polluters? Sign up to take part in the action here: goo.gl/forms/8fyRgiCW8aDFQLo33

Let's show Governor Baker that new fossil fuel infrastructure is incompatible with the Paris Climate Agreement and incompatible with our future.

Vigil for Climate Action

Vigil for Climate Action

Monday November 6th - 6:00pm - Monday November 6th - 7:00pm

Cathedral of St. Paul. 138 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02111. We will gather on the Portico - on the covered steps just outside of the Cathedral. Map

After weeks of standing in the Governor’s office asking that he issue an executive order halting the development of fossil fuel infrastructure in the Commonwealth, on Monday, November 6 from 6-7pm we will come together as a coalition of leaders and organizations of faith and of non-faith in a candlelight vigil on the Statehouse steps. This will be the opening day of the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany (COP 23), and we will stand as people of hope that Massachusetts might take the lead on climate, even when our country will not. As we consider the intersections of climate justice, we will hear from local leaders of the movement, gather together in moments of silence, song, and hope, and pray for our leaders here in Massachusetts and abroad.

You are welcome to bring organizational signs and banners, but because this is a vigil, we do not recommend protest signs.

We'll be showing up outside Gov Baker's Springfield office at lunchtime. We have an executive order which we think Governor Baker should sign.

This day marks the start of this year's international climate conference. Reclaiming Our Future March & Protest Rally in Northampton on the Eve of the Bonn Climate Talks
We are protesting the policies even in our own state of Massachusetts that keep us on the path toward climate breakdown. The Trump administration withdrew USA from the 2015 Paris Climate agreement, making us one of only 2 countries in the entire world who have not agreed to work togther to reduce emissions.
The Trump Dirty Power Plan keeps our country beholden to the fossil fuel industry and prevents us from participating in the clean energy revolution with the rest of the planet. The majority of the citizens of Massachusetts are against new gas pipelines, and studies show we do not need the capacity. So why does Gov Baker insist on saddling Massachusetts with investments in outdated, last century's dirty energy?

Our Governor, Charlie, Baker signed Massachusetts up for the Climate Alliance of 15 states in June, but his policies regarding new gas pipelines and the pipeline tax are incompatible with that gesture. We simply can not build new pipelines that lock us into the Trump Dirty Power Plan for 30 years and at the same time say that we are doing our part to fix the climate crisis.

These actions are intended to add to the #standUpCharlie actions started by the Mass Power Forward coalition of climate action groups in Massachusetts. After one woman stood outside Gov Baker's office every day for 90 days, groups have shown up to do the same.
