Please join us for a Google Hangout on Thursday with two leaders of the climate emergency movement, Ken Ward and Wes Clark, Jr. Both recently took serious risks to support the Standing Rock Sioux and to advance the cause of climate mobilization. We'll discuss their actions, their consequences, and what they believe comes next for the climate emergency movement in the Age of Trump.
Do you have any questions you'd like to ask Ken or Wes during this session? Leave them in the live chat on Youtube!
Date: Thursday, Jan. 12
Time: 8:30 EST / 5:30 PDT

Last month, Wes Clark, Jr. co-organized Veterans for Standing Rock, the incredible effort that mobilized thousands of veterans to deploy to Standing Rock.
And in October, Ken and four others undertook what Reuters described as the "biggest coordinated move on U.S. energy infrastructure ever undertaken by environmental protesters," temporarily shutting down the five major tar sands pipelines carrying crude oil into the U.S. and halting 15% of crude oil imports for a day. (See their prophetic letter to President Obama calling for an emergency mobilization to phase out fossil fuels and draw down excess carbon.)
In exchange for trying to protect us from ecological holocaust, Ken has been charged with burglary, criminal trespass, sabotage and assemblage of saboteurs. His trial is on January 30th. Sign up for trial support and donate to help Ken, the other valve turners, and their supporters pay their legal and other expenses.
