Stop Coal - Save our Future!
Rally to end the deadly use of coal and start building the secure green
Please join us on Sunday, March 1st, as we rally at three MA coal plants,
standing with others across the country to ask that our state and nation end
the deadly use of coal and start building the secure green future.
The next day, authors/activists Wendell Berry and Bill McKibben will be
joined by thousands of people -- young and old alike -- in a mass act of
civil disobedience at the Washington DC coal plant that powers Congress with
dirty energy ( www.capitolclimateaction.com).
Please join us locally to help put an end to the unsustainable and
destructive use of coal and other fossil fuels that is driving us to the
brink of climate catastrophe, economic unraveling, war, disease and
ecological breakdown. (Click here to see why an immediate phase-out of coal
is essential to avert irreversible catastrophic climate change and more.)
Stand together for Healthy People, Peace & the Planet!
Stop investing in fossil fuels, Wall Street bail outs, and war!
Start building the sustainable, secure, post-carbon economy!

Switching quickly from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy is essential
to avert climate and economic catastrophe, pursue real peace and security,
create secure green jobs, and protect our health. A green economy based on
renewable energy and sustainable food is a triple win - for people, peace
and the planet.
Help spread the word and send the message to the powers-that-be that a rapid
phase-out of all coal-powered plants is needed NOW! We are planning legal
demonstrations, and ask that all participants respect the call to refrain
from civil disobedience on March 1.
The Stop Coal - Save our Future! rallies are being organized by the Mass.
Coalition for Healthy Communities (MCHC) / Secure Green Future (SGF), Toxics
Action Center, Clean Air Coalition, Clean Water Action, Green Action
Citizens v. Coal, HealthLink, and the MA Climate Coalition.
