AWAKE, A Dream From Standing Rock (Nov 27- Gainesville FL)

On Monday, November 27th, we will present a screening of the documentary “AWAKE, A Dream From Standing Rock” at the Civic Media Center starting at 7pm.

AWAKE is a 2017 documentary that follows Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota as they captured the world's attention through their peaceful resistance against the U.S. government's plan to construct an oil pipeline through their sacred tribal land.

"I'VE BEEN WOKEN
by the spirit inside that
demanded I open my eyes
and see the world around me.
Seeing that my children's future
was in peril. See that my life couldn't
wait and slumber anymore. See that I was
honored to be among those who are awake.
To be alive at this point in time is to see the rising
of the Oceti Sakowin. To see the gathering of nations
and beyond that, the gathering of all races and all faiths.
Will you wake up and dream with us?
Will you join our dream. Will you join us?”
- Floris White Bull

Gettin' The Word Out !

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

Sabal Trail Pipeline Forum

  • Hollywood Beach Culture & Community Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.

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.

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.

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.
