Greta Arrested For Palestine

   

Greta Thunberg was arrested this week for protesting Genocide in Palestine, outside of Swedish Parliament. 

   Greta commented on the scene, "This struggle has only just begun. The climate justice movement has been doing these things for decades and we have been only met with def ears. We feel like we have no other choice but to sit here, and disrupt the system, in order to get our voice heard."

   Although she was arrested Monday, she returned Tuesday, to continue the campaign. 

   In the past year, Greta has made civil disobedience to the point of arrest a bigger part of her activism, on several occasions. 

   At the Daily Rebellion and XR Pathways, we've made clear what side we stand on with our press release. However, there are many more still standing on the sidelines. Although many acts of civil disobedience have taken place, especially here in the US, the vast majority are not yet called to action.
Jews who feel disenfranchised by the policies of Genocide, Arabs who identify with the victims of the modern genocide in Gaza and the West Bank can usually be found at protests. The climate community could step up quite a bit more to bolster the numbers.

   It's important as climate activists that we can show up for these struggles that align with our beliefs, that policies of genocide are an extinction in themselves, of our morals, and even of our future survivability. As Code Pink says, "War is Not Green."

Citizens’ Assemblies are our last hope for rational governance in our age of climatic collapse.

Why was 2023 so extreme? The data is finally in! The world absorbed a lot more sunlight, as less was reflected. While greenhouse gases kept most of the additional heat in. Add El Niño and all temperature records shattered!

"We stormed Chevron CEO Mike Wirth's interview at a corporate diversity event. His speech was on "the role of engaged men in gender inclusivity." We chased him out because he's not a man, he's a sick leech, and if he's engaged in anything, it's "killing women of color."
