Moving Together

Just an update to last Saturday’s event.

Readers may recall that John H. and I went to the nearest Moving Planet event in Phoenix, as posted on Monday.  Now 350.org have released a video of the event as seen from a global perspective.

2000+ events. 180+ countries. A single day to Move Beyond Fossil Fuels. 350.org’s 2011 day of action, Moving Planet, brought together Moving Together.

Photos and Videos submitted by thousands of organizers and activists around the world — THANK YOU!

Moving Planet day

Just a quick item about last Saturday.

My apologies but the demands on my time are a little challenging this week.  All as a result of the creative writing course that is being undertaken at our local Gila Community College, a course that I am loving, by the way!

Last Saturday, John H. and I went down to Tempe, Phoenix to attend the nearest Moving Planet event.  It was well-attended especially by people the right side of 40 years-old!  After all it is the succeeding generation that is going to cope with the consequences of the present abuse of the planet’s resources.

The leader of the event down in Tempe was Doug Bland of Arizona Interfaith Power and Light and it was very encouraging to see such a strong ecumenical involvement.

Later this week, I want to respond to the views that came out in the first part of the Sceptical voices piece last week but for now let me just leave you with a 4-minute video that was shown to the group down in Tempe last Saturday.  It is called Try not to Make Connections.
