Congressional Women accountable by rushing the field at the annual Journalist vs Congress Women’s Softball Game. 

A dozen or so members of the new Climate Action group, which demands Government stop approving new fossil fuel projects, temporarily shut down the women’s congressional game, Wednesday.

Several members of congress could be seen in the video asking the group to leave, but CD locked arms, and began to chant - “Fossil Fuels are Killing Us.”

The Congressional Women’s Softball Game is an annual tradition in which Members of Congress play against journalists. The amount they raise for charity through their $10 ticket sales is a pittance. They should be protecting the population through their actions in congress.

edit: Update: - Apparently the congressional members did respond at the game to this protest. They decided to dance. To ignore the pleas for help - they danced. Very disappointing, Congress.

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.

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!”
