The People's Climate March website is replete with good information.
350 Toronto are coordinating bus transportation from Toronto and lodging in NYC. Please give them your support in this important work.
A-and up-front praise for Forest Action Network in Victoria who are asking the RIGHT QUESTION:
Have a look at their August Newsletter for an Action Plan that makes sense (to me at least).
Gentlemen and Ladies! Get over yourselves!
All'a these 'soi distant' smart-guy gurus all'a time sayin' "THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!"
OK then, try this on: How about casting Rob Ford as Toronto's St. George?!
I'll look at it later. I'll look at it later. Too late.
Gilmar's diagram shows what increasing justice & equality look like when things begin to get really tough.
I said long-shot. Right?
WTF, Rob Ford is within squeaking distance of re-election so maybe he could be convinced to listen. It's not as if the mealy-mouthed left-libs & right-libs really mean anything they say so even if he just said something positive about any aspect of the looming apocalypse (say, pipelines within municipal boundaries) it would at least show the strength of the citizens lobby.
Dunno. I'm just sayin' ... and anyway, I've always had a soft spot for Dennis the Menace (which is what that picture of him up top reminds me of). And if you have watched any of the debates ... please tell me that any of the other contenders really have anything to say.
Maybe he won't want to piss off his Granite Club buddies (if he still has any) or the members of whatever club Stan Bharti belongs to. But then ... maybe some of them are beginning to figgure things out. Who knows?
How would one go about presenting such an idea to someone like Rob Ford I wonder?
Not that this would amount to any substantive action. A PR exercise. A bit of real politik theatre. Nothing more.
A bit of fun though eh? A feel-good moment.
After elections I wish the voters would just go and fuck themselves!
Your excellency, it's rude to speak with your mouth full.
