It’s been five days since Fossil Free Fast, and I’m still getting chills thinking about how powerful it was. 💐 🌹 🌺 🌻 🌼 🌷 🌱 🌲 🌳 🌴 🌵 🌾 🌿 🍀 🍁 🍂 🍃 🍄 🌰  

Tens of thousands of you watched from home or gathered at more than 300 watch parties across the country -- from Hilo, Hawaii to Mount Vernon, Iowa to Maryville, Tennessee. Inspiring movement leaders, many fighting on the frontlines of this crisis in places like Puerto Rico and the Gulf Coast, laid out the #ClimateResistance plan for 2018.

But, of course, Fossil Free Fast wasn’t just a powerful event -- it was the beginning of a new chapter for the grassroots movement for climate justice here in the U.S. The momentum we built together on Wednesday was just the beginning. Now, it’s time to get to work.

Watch this wrap-up video capturing some of the most inspiring highlights from Fossil Free Fast -- and share it widely to keep the momentum going as we get ready for what’s next.

Trump 🦀lives an unexamined life. Trump 🦀 probably thinks Socrates 🕊 was a "loser". Honest and principled human beings KNOW who is the real loser of the two.

Lessons From Germany

Vermont Town Meeeting


February 16, 2018
Quote

I am delighted German Ambassador Peter Wittig joined me in Vermont last Friday. We had a series of very productive meetings with the governor, state legislators, career and technical educators and Vermont businesses to see what we can learn from Germany’s highly acclaimed apprenticeship and workforce development programs. Ambassador Wittig also joined me Friday evening for a town meeting in Burlington that was attended by more than 500 Vermonters. We had a very lively discussion about current events in Germany and Europe, and how Germany approaches issues like higher education, health care, workers' rights, taxation, climate change and more.

Published on Dec 3, 2017

Journalist, author and war correspondent Chris Hedges took questions after speaking at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy NY on November 10, 2017 on fascism and empire in the age of Trump.

www.mediasanctuary.org

Chris Hedges is the best-selling author of War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning (2003), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction. A quote from the book was used as the opening title quotation in the critically-acclaimed and Academy Award-winning 2009 film, The Hurt Locker. The quote reads: "The rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for war is a drug." Hedges, whose column is published Mondays on Truthdig, has written twelve books, including the New York Times bestseller Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt (2012), which he co-authored with the cartoonist Joe Sacco. Some of his other books include Unspeakable (2016), Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative to Revolt (2015), Death of the Liberal Class (2010), Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle (2009), I Don’t Believe in Atheists (2008) and the best selling American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America (2008). In 2011, Nation Books published a collection of Hedges’ Truthdig columns called The World As It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress. Hedges previously spent nearly two decades as a foreign correspondent in Central America, the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans. He has reported from more than 50 countries and has worked for The Christian Science Monitor, National Public Radio, The Dallas Morning News and The New York Times, for which he was a foreign correspondent for 15 years. Hedges was part of the team of reporters at The New York Times awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for the paper’s coverage of global terrorism. He also received the Amnesty International Global Award for Human Rights Journalism in 2002. The Los Angeles Press Club honored Hedges’ original columns in Truthdig by naming the author the Online Journalist of the Year in 2009 and again in 2011. The LAPC also granted him the Best Online Column award in 2010 for his Truthdig essay “One Day We’ll All Be Terrorists.” Hedges is a senior fellow at The Nation Institute in New York City. He has taught at Columbia University, New York University, Princeton University and The University of Toronto. He currently teaches prisoners at a maximum-security prison in New Jersey.
