I hope thata CAN will help "turn it around" by supporting Bill 897 to stop logging on public land in Massachusetts. One of the single-most important things we can do, according to the most recent IPCC report, is to protect our forests. Seems like a no-brainer to support Bill 897. Please.

fyi climate denier trolls get BLOCKED - don't waster your time here

How much to we love Collective Copies?  
A worker-owned cooperative, they voted to print up climate movement artwork signs and give them away.

Not only that, they will be shutting of the lights and presses for an hour today in solidarity with the global climate strike to stand outside their shops and hand them out. 

Thank you and Well done!

It's been said that "trees are our climate saviors" but not unless we save the trees! Support H.897. Don't let other state forests suffer the devastation Wendell State Forest has suffered.

Its so exciting to see all the energy and great organizing happening with Extinction Rebellion Western MA!  
Meetings in preparation for the big upcoming week are listed below.  XR has plans to move forward beyond this week, too.

One of the best things we can do to make this climate movement huge and unstoppable is to SHOW UP IN PERSON to meetings and actions... and bring friends.  
 
We The People must come together to turn it around.

And please show up in Boston on Tues;l Sept. 24, 1PM, Hearing Room B-1, State House, to speak for H 897, a moratorium on logging in state forests. The IPCC states that next to banning fossil fuels, the best thing we can do is to leave trees and let them continue to sequester carbon.
