May 7 - Be Part of a Global Wave of Mass Actions

Join Action United and Pittsburgh 350 on Saturday, May 7 for the Right To Breathe rally in Philadelphia.

Have we conveyed just how big a deal this is? This rally is one of many mass actions organized by 350.org around the globe for the first two weeks of May. Read about the actions planned for Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ecuador, Germany, Indonesia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Philippines, South Africa, Turkey, the U.K., and the U.S.

Action United is underwriting the cost of a bus to Philly and requesting a sliding scale donation of $5 to $20 per seat, depending on your means, to help defray the cost. Sign up now to reserve your seat on the bus. Not able to go? A $40 donation will send two people.
Donate to Send Riders
By the way, there's another Break Free rally in  Washington DC on Sunday, May 15, targeting offshore drilling. Interested in going? Let us know, we may be able to arrange a carpool.
Disobey!

Some of the global 350 actions will include civil disobedience. The new film Disobedience, about the global movement to break free from fossil fuels, is now available for free download and streaming at watchdisobedience.com
