Day-30 of Climate Hunger Strike in DC

Day-30 of Climate Hunger Strike in DC

Confronted with the most extraordinary and urgent crisis in human history, the time has come for tactics which are an accurate reflection of just what is at stake for humanity. While marching, petitions, letters to officials, and brave, noble front-line resistance of individual Earth-destroying projects are all tactics which are necessary, they are not enough.

We hear everyday from activists and climate scientists that failing to cut carbon emissions in the immediate future will lead to an Earth which will not sustain human life during our children’s time or beyond, but absent actions which are appropriate expressions of the magnitude and severity of our situation, it is impossible for the people to cut through all the noise and propaganda about global warming in time to stop it from crossing the tipping point.

What has, in the past, reliably broken through to reach people’s hearts has been the non-violent action of regular citizens giving all, when that’s what’s needed, and the sacrifices made by those determined to achieve justice.
