Hopes and Expectations for Forward On Climate Rally?
BPFers in Washington (state) are gearing up to join what’s being billed as the largest climate rally in US history: arguably a challenge to the empire-building lie that climate change is a back-burner issue that will somehow sort itself out. There are probably more of you out there planning whip up a protest sign on February 17th, or even participating in some of the organizing where you live. (Sounds like there’s going to be a big gathering in Washington, DC, plus lots of local actions in other cities.)
If you’ve been involved or interested in the rally, what can you tell the rest of us about your hopes and expectations for the day?
How do you see it fitting in to the larger struggles to address ecological destruction generally, and the Keystone XL Pipeline specifically?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts; we’ll see you next week for more fresh perspectives from Buddhist and spiritual activists on the Lies That Build Empire.
