Climate Defiance gained access to a fundraiser where plates were starting at 500 dollars often go up to 50,000 or 100,000 per plate.
Per plate, but the food is not what people are coming for. These kind of events are ways for presidential candidates to rake in money beyond what campaign elections would allow, and tie them to interests like big oil indefinitely. Disrupting these events is the only way we can reduce their effectiveness and simultaneously shine a line on one of the worst aspects of our campaign election process, and how they are financed.
After a long action, which included multiple rooms, and banners, and lots of people attempting to remove the activists, finally, the billionaires left. However, the damage Biden is doing is harrowing. Climate Defiance: “The President just approved a 2,000,000,000 cubic-foot-per-day fracked gas pipeline in the midst of a climate emergency. This was not a compromise. This was a crime.The President has: -Refused to stop Line 3, a 700,000 barrel-per-day pipeline through treaty lands -Signed the Mountain Valley Pipeline into law -Approved the Willow Project -Approved the Alaska LNG project, which is even worse than Willow for the climate.”

Four civil disobedience activists (including one rebel) blocked the road to the Burning Man festival. It generated hundreds of media stories.Another rebel glued his feet to the floor of Arthur Ashe stadium and stopped a US Open semi-final game for 49 minutes. It generated thousands of media hits worldwide, inserted the topic of climate emergency where it is least seen - the sports pages. Would you like to be a part of this new wave of climate actions, where a small number of brave people can make a big impact? Come learn from these two rebels. It's not hard. It just needs a bit of pluck, a bit of creativity, and a straightforward message.

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
