350 Ohio endorses Ohio Fracktion ACTION CAMP as official “99% Spring” Training. Sign-Up NOW to be there April 13-15th!
Last year the world was surprised as courageous and uncompromising youth demanded the kind of change nobody imagined possible, from the Middle East toppling regimes to New York City’s Wall Street and the heart of economic inequality. Cities across the world continue to join in challenging oppressive regimes for a just and livable future. We’re not satisfied with changing the deck chairs but seek the fundamental social transformations that inspires old visions of peaceful revolution and continually confound the choir of ‘status quo.’
Ohio Fracktion is proud to announce that the April 13-15th action camp has been officially endorsed by 350.org as an official training of the national ‘99% Spring‘ where across America we will gather 100,000 strong, in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets to join together in the work of reclaiming our country. We will organize trainings to:
1. Tell the story of our economy: how we got here, who’s responsible, what a different future could look like, and what we can do about it
2. Learn the history of non-violent direct action, and
3. Get into action on our own campaigns to win change.
Our action camp will feature 3 days of workshops including: Fracking 101, Nonviolent Direct Action, Blockades, Action Media, Police/Worker Liaison, Jail Support, Legal Observation, Moratorium Building, Water-testing Training, Public Records, Art, Security, Prison-Industrial Complex, Community Organizing, Impacted Community Panel on Extraction, and film screenings! All are focused on how to plan effective actions to build a powerful grassroots movement. Read more about our workshops...
It can’t come sooner. We’re partnered with leading climate group 350 Ohio to bring a special focus to our 99% Spring training: fighting extractive industries like fracking that threaten our health, ecosystem, and the climate. And here’s the clincher: We have to reduce the carbon in the atmosphere to under 350 parts per million or face irreversible climate change that threatens human civilization as we have known it. And to survive the future before us, we have be able to drink the water.
So we hope to see you there. Register on our website or donate to OhioFracktion so we can feed a house full of anti-fracking activists from across the state who are on the front-lines of this fight for our lives and already facing the devastating horrors of water too poisoned to drink.
