Friday, September 15th, Activists gathered outside the MoMA, (Museum of Modern Art), at 1pm for what would become an eventual 6 hour occupation and shut down of the museum.

   Their demand is that the museum cut their ties with the criminal private equity firm, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, or KKR. Eventually, they agreed to leave if Museum Director, Glenn Lowry, schedule a meeting with our Wet'suwet'en guests this weekend. Since that demand was refused, the occupiers threatened to occupy through the night, as they had already shut the museum down for 5 hours. An hour later, arrests began.

   Supporter, Klea, 19, said, “Today we are protesting at the MoMA because they have Henry Kravis’s wife as their board chair. Henry Kravis and KKR are funding a fossil fuel pipeline through indigenous, Wet'suwet'en lands, against their wishes … MoMA literally has an exhibit with Henry Kravis’s name on it - they are propping him up. They claim to be a sustainable institution, but they are nothing but ... We can’t have this greenwashing when people are literally dying, when it is our lives at stake. We can’t continue with this system, this paradigm, that puts people into suffering, while the rich get richer. Their rich man’s eco system - their bubble.”
   The final arrestee was released around 3am. Most only received charges of trespassing. Protests continue, with a planned march on Sunday, Monday and beyond.

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!”
