September 28th: Major Rally to Protest Bush's Disastrous Policies on Global Warming!!
In Downtown D.C.: Join Mobilized Americans Outside the President's Charade Climate Conference at the State Department
Noontime protest will include music, speakers, street theater and more

Here's the scoop: In a clearly manipulative move, George Bush is inviting top leaders from around the world to Washington, D.C. Sept. 27th and 28th to officially convey his "deep concern" about global warming. His proposed fix: more useless "voluntary" measures and huge subsidies for "clean coal" and nuclear energy. The event is clearly meant to undermine real international efforts now underway to achieve mandatory greenhouse gas cuts under the Kyoto process.

Here's what you can do: Join other concerned Americans in protesting this cynical conference on September 28th from noon-1:00 p.m. WeĆ¢?Tll be holding a rally downtown next to the State Department, probably on Virginia Avenue between C and D Streets, NW (permit applied for). For now, simply save the date and register for the rally so we can keep you updated in the coming days. Or simply check in for updates at or call 301-891-6723.

Top ministers and heads of state from around the world will be attending Bush's conference as well as a great concentration of national and international media. We need to show up and loudly proclaim our own message: George Bush doesn't speak for us! We want real climate action now!

Who should come?: Everyone concerned about our rapidly collapsing climate, no matter where you live in the United States. Carpool to Washington September 28th. We especially want to appeal to people who work in or near downtown D.C. to come spend their lunch hour at the event. We need your body!


What: Major global warming rally to protest Bush's criminal neglect of the climate crisis. Music, inspiring speakers, lively actions.

When: Friday September 28th from noon-1:00 pm

Where: A location close to the State Department, probably the park on Virginia Avenue between C and D Streets NW. A permit request is pending.

How to get involved: Bring a bag lunch and your convictions to the rally. You can also participate in other actions that day and the day before, ranging from a Thursday morning vigil to nonviolent civil disobedience.
