The Global Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit is an education and direct action campaign beginning this spring with “10 Days to Change Course” running from Earth Day to May Day.Together we can harness the transformative power we already possess as a thousand separate movements for justice, rising up against the global assault on our shared economy, ecology, peace and democracy. The accelerating climate disaster, which threatens to unravel civilization as soon as 2050, intensifies all of these struggles and creates new urgency for collaboration.

Clearly the time for unified action is NOW.

The Convergence creates a unifying call for a solution as big as the crisis barreling down on us – an emergency Green Economic Transformation through a Global Green New Deal including universal jobs, health care, education, food and housing security, economic and political democracy, demilitarization, an end to deportations, and 100% clean renewable energy by 2030.

Our meeting will be from 6-7 so we can attend the Oly Free Space Assembly event at Traditions
“Olympia Free Space Assembly , 7:00 PM.
Over the course of several Free Olympia Project assemblies, one topic that has repeatedly been discussed is the need for more free spaces in Olympia. Free Spaces are a broad subject: from renting buildings or houses to use as community centers, to reclaiming abandoned structures, to liberating our streets as free spaces of creative expression.We’ve scheduled an assembly to discuss this subject specifically, on March 12th at Traditions. This is a page for that event, but also a means to discuss the possibility of an Olympia Free Space.One example that I’ve found that seems worth looking into modeling ourselves after is the Minnehaha Free Space.http://minnehahafreespace.org/about/

This is the third assembly of the Free Olympia Project

The Free Olympia Project seeks to act as a hub for radical community building projects in Olympia. We want to help create community assemblies, free food networks, guerrilla gardens, really really free markets, radical literature distribution, free shelter, and any other projects working towards the goal of a community of horizontal abundance that can improve our material conditions and increase our autonomy from capitalism and the state

This is a space to gather face to face and share projects and ideas, tell people what you’re working on and how they can plug in, and find others with similar ideas. There are already tons of great people working on great projects in Oly. Let’s get together!

Jewish Voice for Peace event in OlyWA Dec 11th

November 29th, 2013
December 11, 2013
12:00 pmto2:00 pm

Spread the word please. Brown bag lunch with Rebecca Vilkomerson of the Jewish Voice for Peace at TESC, Sem 2, Room 1107 from noon to about 2 pm on Wednesday, December 11th.

Want to think about peace in the holy lands?   Wonder where the holy lands are?  Look at your feet. Look to your heart.  Seek the peace in your soul.

As Black Elk said:

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit), and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.

This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is known that true peace, which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.”

Black Elk – Oglala Sioux

come join us and pass the peace, share the peace, bring the peace that is within the souls of all of us.
