Make a difference in the challenge to confront global warming and prevent nuclear war and the development and use of nuclear weapons.

Forward on Climate Rally

Washington, District of Columbia
Time: Noon - 4:00 pm (please arrive by 11:30 am)
Location: The National Mall
Worried about Hurricane Sandy, Midwest droughts and the hottest weather yet? It’s time to raise our voices to counter Big Oil's dollars. This Presidents Day, PSR is working with the Sierra Club, 350.org, and others to organize the biggest climate demonstration yet.
Our goal for Presidents Day is to form a massive human pipeline through Washington and direct it to advocacy for the renewable energy future we need and are ready to build. The president needs our support to stop the climate-killing Keystone XL pipeline which takes the worst oil and threatens our aquifers as it is transported to ports for refining and export.
Just like our efforts to block export of coal and liquefied natural gas and building expensive, unsafe nuclear power, this effort counters the big profits of the fossil fuel companies and demands solutions to reduce their usage worldwide.
Join us on Presidents Day, February 17 -- sign up to join the rally, and bring your friends.
