Gettin' The Word Out !

  • Christina Park Softball Complex

This is an official invite to come together and join forces and "Get the Word Out. ". Recently we have all seen that things are coming together . We have been scattered out long enough . We have all worked so hard on making things get right with our efforts to make sure that the Polluters and Politicians are put to a stop . The causes that we all defend and protect are in critical condition . The land , the air , the water and the wildlife . These things are necessary for our life and the lives of our children and generations after us . Our Mother Earth is sick . And she needs us . Although she will always be here and she has always been able to overcome whatever has been in her path , we can't . You see she doesn't need us but we need her . We need her Water , her Air , her Land. We need wildlife . The human race cannot survive without her . 
That being said I would like to invite you all Tree Huggers , activists , victims , concerned citizens etc... , to come together all in one place . A day that we can all meet with one another , share our experiences, knowledge , information, ideas ,plans and anything else we want to share . 
I feel blessed to have met so many of you who share the same goals and ideas . I've been blessed and learned so much . Each of us have our own causes that we hold close to our hearts . Each of us have our own beliefs and reasons why we do this . Personally I started fighting the hardest I ever had when my Eight year old daughter called me into the bathroom to see her bathwater was brownish orange with clumps of clay in it . Three weeks before the Mosaic sinkhole was made public . Later My moms hands turned blue when she used the well water to wash her hands . she spent those two days in her room , nauseous , dizzy , headache , diarrhea and regurgitating . 
Whatever the reasons are . They exist . 
We need to gather as one to ensure that the rest of our fight doesn't stay within the bounds of the internet and social media . We need to gather on a personal basis to insure that all we arm ourselves . We need gather as a show of unity to to each other . 
So much if our information , our intentions and our "ammunition" so to speak is out there for the world to see . And I don't personally believe that those we fight against are posting their battle plans They don't scream from the hilltops all their next moves . 
I have personally been blessed to have met some wonderful people during this journey . And the fact that I got to work with them , plan with them and have them hear my voice as well as my being able to hear theirs , has made me respect and appreciate myself as well as all of you . When I felt alone and thought I was the only one who understood . When I needed to be picked back up and brushed off ,and told to soldier up. Y'all were there So thanks . Remember we are small but we are mighty . And when ya think about it . They need us . Alot more than we need them . 
I would love to meet all of you . We need to make sure that we support each other in our causes . We need to join our forces by joining people to people , towns to towns and county's to county's .

Sabal Trail Pipeline Forum
May
23
6:00 pm18:00

Sabal Trail Pipeline Forum

  • Hollywood Beach Culture & Community Center

The Sabal Trail Pipeline project is a 515-mile pipeline that, if completed, will pump a billion cubic feet of fracked gas a day through the Upper Floridan Aquifer, an ecologically crucial region and the source of 60 percent of our state’s drinking water. It is being built by a consortium of companies, which includes NextEra, the parent company of Florida Power & Light (FP&L), the same companies that are trying to impede the full implementation of solar energy power in the Sunshine State.

The dangers from the Sabal Trail Pipeline are part of an unfolding water crisis directly related to climate change that now threatens every part of Florida. 

Thanks to our collective efforts, two leading Democratic candidates for governor of Florida -- Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum and former congresswoman Gwen Graham -- have come out publicly against the Sabal Trail Pipeline. Throughout Florida, at least nine county Democratic executive committee (DECs) -- most recently in Miami-Dade County -- have now passed resolutions against the Sabal Trail Pipeline.

Even though our efforts to halt the construction of the Sabal Trail Pipeline are gathering momentum – we are running out of time. The pipeline could be pumping fracked gas through Florida’s wetlands and "sinkhole" country as early as this summer.

That's why we're hosting a public forum to raise awareness of the dangers the Sabal Trail Pipeline on Tuesday evening, May 23rd in Hollywood Beach, Florida.

It's our mission to help educate the public and mainstream media, and spur the grassroots to action -- for example, by calling and writing letters to members of Congress and other public officials, sending letters to the editors of local newspapers, signing our petition (we've already gathered over 100,000 signatures), and joining the growing divestment movement to boycott the fossil fuels industry and the big Wall Street banks that fund them. 

Time is running out. If we fail to stop the Sabal Trail Pipeline, sometime in the future -- in six months or six years perhaps -- the entire state of Florida may look like Flint, Michigan, with contaminated drinking water and dependent on bottled water for all our basic needs. Please share, spread the word, and join us on May 23rd to keep fighting against the fossil fuel industry, fracking and pipelines, and to keep working for a sustainable future based on solar and other renewable energy sources.

Speakers to be announced soon.

Off Fossil Fuels, On to the Clean Energy Future

  • 36 GRANADA ST ST AUGUSTINE, FL 32084

Because our lives depend on a clean energy future

We are at a critical moment. As the fossil fuel industry poisons the planet, the current administration is emboldening climate deniers attacking our environment, our communities, and our democracy. We need to embrace solutions - now, not tomorrow.

We will move America OFF fossil fuels by building political power, beginning at the local level. Together, we'll cultivate climate champions in government, ban fracking, keep fossil fuels in the ground, stop dangerous pipelines and infrastructure projects, and initiate an immediate and just transition to 100% clean, renewable energy. We're supporting a strong, diverse movement and we want YOU to have the tools and resources to organize and WIN in your community. 

Join us to watch the national OFF Fossil Fuels livestream. We'll discuss how to get to work locally to fight the fossil fuel industry, push for a transition to clean energy, and take back our democracy.

Off Fossil Fuels On To The Clean Energy Revolution

  • Beef O Bradys Village Lakes

Food & Water Watch is ramping up their campaign: OFF Fossil Fuels On To The Clean Energy Revolution. Here's what they have to say:

Trump is in office. Climate change is real. And we need a new approach. Business as usual is not going to stop corporations from poisoning our planet and cooking our climate. We need to change course. That's why I'm asking you to be a part of a brand new approach to fighting climate change — with you in the driver's seat. 

In the age of Trump and politicians bought by corporations on both sides of the aisle, it is more important than ever that we take action locally and build a powerful movement to win from the ground up. We're switching up how we do things because you and members of your community hold the keys to making real change. We are opening up our tools and trainings, and building a truly grassroots movement through a connected network of volunteers and centralized support for folks across the country who want to take a stand against the impacts of climate change in their community. 

Together, we will move our country OFF Fossil Fuels. Let me be clear: this isn't our typical campaign. We're giving you the keys to drive this effort in your community. Three weeks from today — on Saturday, May 13 — we're holding simultaneous OFF Fossil Fuels launch parties across the country. At these events, you'll meet with your friends and neighbors to hear more about this national effort and discuss what you can do locally to move us OFF Fossil Fuels. 

Like so many of you, we've been working to stop fracking and fossil fuel projects for years. And now more than ever, we need more people working locally to stand up to Big Oil, Coal and Gas and defend our rights to clean water, healthy food, and a safe and livable climate. We need solutions that meet the scale of the problem. 

The scientific community is calling for an immediate shift to clean, renewable energy to stay below 1.5 degrees of warming. In order to protect our families and our planet, we're committed to blocking fossil fuel projects now and to a just transition to 100% clean renewable energy by 2035 (because waiting until 2050 is simply not an option).¹ This is a bold goal — and it will be hard — but we know this is what is necessary to avoid the most devastating impacts of climate change. The work to move our country OFF Fossil Fuels will be driven by the strongest resource we have in this fight: YOU. 

Climate change affects everything: the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and our health and livelihoods. Low-income neighborhoods and communities of color are already being hit the hardest, and unless we take action now, the impacts on all people and the planet will be devastating. We know that concerned people like you have been taking action for years to resist the extraction of fossil fuels from our environment and to push for a clean energy future. We're able to launch this campaign because of the powerful and strong resistance we've built together. Now let's take it to the next level.

Patronage to Beef O Brady's is requested.

Hike with a Biologist: St. Johns River Grasses

  • Rivertown Park

Join Aquatic Biologist Robert Burks for a walking tour along the vegetation of the St. Johns River shoreline, also known as the “riparian zone,” to identify the native species and how they are important to the health and ecology of the river. Learn why each is unique and valuable to the St Johns River ecosystem, including fish, crabs, shrimp, manatee, etc. The information will be presented in a manner that relates to every day life and health.

Some of the talking points:
– ecology of riparian zones, and why they are important for river health
– vegetation highlights that are unique to Florida, and this part of the river
– underwater grasses (SAVS) that are unique to this part of the river, and their benefits
– dock/pier issues and the impacts with light/experimental docks on aquatic grasses
– importance of submerged native vegetation and how it interacts with native aquatic species
– impacts of aquatic vegetation on water quality
– interesting stories on the history of native vegetation unique to that area.

Robert Burks is a member of the St. Johns Riverkeeper River Patrol, and lead designer of the “Know your Bloom” algae bloom awareness and sampling program. He has over 10 years of professional experience in this section of the River. This walk will last approximately 1 hour.

After the hike, head over to Bartram Bash, a festival celebrating the naturalist life and work of William Bartram at Alpine Groves Park . Food trucks, live music, ecological vendors and activities are scheduled from 10:00am – 3:00 p.m.

Robert Burks has spent 10 years leading an environmental aquatic science research team focusing on this area of the St. Johns River.

COST: There is no cost for attending this Water Ceremony. It is free and open for everyone to join together for the purpose of Peace through Payer To WATER.

A Monthly Water Ceremony Of Love & Gratitude with Native American Elder & Medicine Man Iron Eagle Joe. 

We are very fortunate to have Iron Eagle Joe leading our Full Moon Water Ceremony this Tuesday April 11th at 6:30pm at Coral Cove Beach in Tequesta Florida. Iron Eagle Joe will share wisdom from the heart and his dedication towards educating all people the importance of WATER. 

We invite you and your family to join monthly Water Ceremony of Love & Gratitude, a gathering of the heart, with true intention to heal our Waters for Peace on Earth. We are water and water is Life! Water is what connects all life. When we set our hearts intentions to love and gratitude to heal water, we heal ourselves and we heal all water life on Mother Earth.

WATER BLESSING ~ 
In honoring of Great Spirit and all our relations we will offer the Ho'oponopono Prayer:

"Water, I Am Sorry
Water, Please Forgive Me
Water, Thank You
Water, I Love You."

OUR INTENTION ~
When we gather as a community and unite hearts in Love & Gratitude, it's the power of our resoance that will forever shift consciousness towards a greater awareness of WATER and the power each of us holds for Peace on Earth. Peace begins within.

When we brought Dr. Emoto & Iron Eagle together in 2014 to hold Water Ceremony here in South Florida, they shared an instant brotherly connection of the heart and a great respect for WATER. Dr. Emoto held a private meeting, where with great honor, he invited Iron Eagle to Japan to participate in the very sacred Water Ceremony held every 5 years at the Heitate Shrine for World Peace. Even though Dr. Emoto sadly passed away suddenly, only two months later, Iron Eagle Joe honored Dr. Emoto's request to travel to Japan to participate in blessing our water for world peace. 

Iron Eagle Joe is a consistent blessing and an incredible resource in the community of South Florida for helping families and facilitating healing for the people in need. With humbleness and great integrity, Iron Eagle leads by example, teaching others the importance of intention solely from the heart. When our intention into every moment comes from love and gratitude, we are open to the power of the resoance of Love and Gratitude making healing for all life (water) possible. 

LOVE & THANKS ~ 
We would like to share our deep Gratitude to Iron Eagle Joe, Richard Wyzanski and Lindsay Kemp for facillatiting Water Education & Monthly Water Ceremony for the South Florida Communiy. It has been through their resonance and support that Water Peace Project is able to continue spreading Love & Gratitude to this wonderful South Florida community! 

Waterpeaceproject.org's mission is to inspire and educate all people, especially children, the importance of WATER for Peace.

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

  • New York, NY

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City. http://bit.ly/PFIIRegistration

March for Science - Palm Beach County

  • Dreher Park

*We are a sister March to the one in D.C. & the date is TBD


We the people of Palm Beach County rise to stand with our friends in STEM fields, with our local environment, and with our global climate. The reduction of critical tax-funded research, coupled with the restriction imposed on scientists from communicating their findings, is a direct threat to all those who value empirical research and data. 

We are calling upon you to march with us in support of our scientific communities and of evidence based, peer reviewed findings which cannot be denied:

-The Earth is becoming warmer due to human action.  
-The diversity of life arose by evolution.  
-Politicians who devalue expertise risk making decisions that do not reflect reality and must be held accountable. 
- An American government that ignores science to pursue ideological agendas endangers the world.

We will rally at the park and then begin marching towards Mar-a-Lago. More details to follow in time. 

What to bring: Dress comfortably for the weather. If possible, wear a blue or green shirt, or a white lab coat. Personal drinking water in a re-usable, recyclable container. A sign expressing your solidarity (which you will either take with you as you go or donate for future events). Please no smoking or alcohol at this event.
