Illegal Occupation

No, not in the Middle East. In Washington, D.C.


During the upcoming Power Shift 2009, activists are planning “the largest mass civil disobedience for the climate in US history” by illegally occupying the Capitol Power Plant, pictured above.

For a discussion of the need for civil disobedience, be sure to visit No Impact Man‘s site. Why Washington? Read Islands Firster Nicholas Arons at The Huffington Post.

And if you still don’t understand how this is a question of survival for small island nations, look no further than SustainUS‘s David Sievers over at Grist. Thanks, David.
