49] – Enjoy a Tour of the Panorama Community Solar Project in Ft. Washington on Fri., Nov. 1 from 9:45 to 11:30 AM, organized by Sierra Club’s Prince George's County Group. Contact Barbara Sollner-Webb at email@example.com or 301-262-8389. Also there will be a seminar on the 6.6 MW Panorama community solar project, the first of its kind in Prince George's County and said to be the largest community solar project in the country! Mr. Hillel Halberstam, Managing Member, SynerGen Solar, will be the guide. Maryland's Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) calls for achieving 50% renewable energy by 2030, with a 14.5% "carve out" for in-state solar energy. Currently, solar comprises only about 5%, so much remains to be done! Community solar allows customers who would not typically have access to solar energy (apartment dwellers, residents in forested areas, for example) to reap its benefits. The solar project is located on a "brownfield" (a former rubble fill), and comprises 25 acres and 20,000 panels, and serves 1,200 subscribers.

51] – Inspired by the Swedish student, Greta Thunberg, the student strikers and Naomi Klein's new book "On Fire: The Burning Case for the Green New Deal," Jane Fonda decided to upend her life, left her comfort zone and move to Washington, D.C. for four months to focus on climate change. As Greta said, "This is a crisis. We have to act like our house is on fire, because it is.” So, every Friday she will host an action called — Fire Drill Friday — at 11 AM on the East Lawn of the Capitol Building, followed by a direct action. Each Friday focus on a different aspect of the climate crisis and what needs to be done moving forward. Join CODEPINK in Washington D.C. on Fri., Nov. 1 and each following Friday through December. On November 8, that Friday will make the connection between war and climate change.
Here’s the deal: We are living at the last possible moment in human history when we can do something about climate change or fail to do so, thereby denying hundreds of millions of people a livable future. What’s often left out of this conversation is the fact that the Pentagon pollutes the atmosphere with greenhouse gases more than 140 countries combined. We can’t address climate change without taking on U.S. militarism — join CODEPINK in Washington D.C. on Fridays with special emphasis on November 8th, where war and militarism will be the focus. Last year, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published its regular report which stated in no uncertain terms that given the worsening disasters we’re already seeing and the additional warming that is already baked in because we didn’t act 30 years ago, we do not stand a chance at changing course in time without profound, systemic economic and social change in the next 11 years.

Directions and more are at www.delcopeacecenter.org . Or call the Brandywine Peace Community, 484-574-1148.
Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 is the Oscar winning filmmaker's film declaration of sardonic wit, guerilla theater, and biting documentary, combining laughter and tears, that asks: Why can't we just see what's going on here?. Here, though, Moore is enraged. He paints a picture of American power, greed and hatred. It wouldn't be Moore to hold back. Fahrenheit 11/9 doesn't.
The film's title refers back to Moore's 2004 film, Fahrenheit 9/11, about the Bush II Administration's policy of “endless war” in response to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Both titles refer back to the Ray Bradbury dystopian novel, Fahrenheit 451.
In Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore talks Trump, but then goes well beyond and beneath Trump, to the destruction of the environment, war, health care, gun violence, rising homelessness, extreme wealth disparity, and the wholesale rip-off of the American people and their democracy. Moore is saying Trump is really a symptom of a far deeper illness in American political culture, and the only cure is the old “we-the-people” thing.

From music, film, television, sports to food, the “Korean Wave” (Hallyu) has generated revenue and reshaped the topography of the global cultural landscape. This year's Colloquium focuses on the K-Pop industry, the contemporary style of Korean pop music that has become popular in countries ranging from the U.S. to China, Nigeria, and Chile. The speakers will examine diverse aspects of K-Pop: state-initiated efforts to employ the Korean Wave as a currency of soft power; corporate infrastructure; global fan practices that contribute to the transnational flow of popular culture; cultural appropriation; the production of idols; and the connections between K-Pop and Korean diasporic as well as other non-Korean communities.

76] – On Sat., Nov. 2 from 3 to 4 PM, Ryan Grim presents "We've Got People: From Jesse Jackson to AOC," hosted by Red Emma's Bookstore Coffeehouse at the Baltimore Book Fair. Tickets are at withfriends.co. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may seem like she came from nowhere, but the movement that propelled her to office – and to global political stardom – has been building for 30 years. We’ve Got People is the story of that movement, which first exploded into public view with the largely forgotten presidential run of the Rev. Jesse Jackson. With the party and the nation at a crossroads, this timely and original book offers new insight into how we’ve gotten where we are – and where we're headed.
Ryan Grim is The Intercept’s D.C. Bureau Chief. He edited and contributed reporting to groundbreaking investigative project on heroin treatment that not only changed federal and state laws, but shifted the culture of the recovery industry. The story, by Jason Cherkis, was a Pulitzer finalist and won a Polk Award.
He grew up in rural Maryland. He has been a staff reporter for Politico and the Washington City Paper and is a former contributor to MSNBC, and is a contributor to the Young Turks Network. Go to https://www.facebook.com/events/2168985583402842/.
77] – On Sat., Nov. 2, Nov. 9 and Nov. 16 from 5:30 to 8:30 PM, Rise Up and Demand Trump/Pence Out Now, hosted by Refuse Fascism at Union Station, WDC. The time has come to launch mass, sustained, nonviolent protests that come back week after week, refusing to stop until the Trump/Pence Regime has been removed from power.
The Trump/Pence Regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity. Concentration Camps on the border… environmental devastation accelerated… the danger of war, even nuclear, threatened… white supremacy rules… fascist mobs and racist mass murderers… truth and science erased… the rule of law and democratic and civil rights are stripped away… THIS IS FASCISM UNFOLDING.
Now, impeachment has begun. A momentous move, in which sharp political battle lines are drawn with high stakes. Trump himself threatens charges of treason and even invokes civil war. A virulent fascist movement sees their future bound up with the whole Trump/Pence regime. Where this ends up depends on us.
This is a moment when we – people of many different views and experience – must act together in mass, sustained, non-violent nationwide protests that continue until the Trump/Pence regime is removed from power. We began with protests in NYC and LA on October 19 that announced four more consecutive Saturdays of protests in cities and towns across the country that gather more people and momentum so that in the weeks and months that follow, the movement grows to tens and hundreds of thousands and millions. What unifies all the diverse streams of people that need to pour into the streets is the single demand: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go—Now!

79] – The Trump Administration is again beating the war drums. Most recently, the target is Iran. Should the Trump administration initiate an act of war against Iran, consider joining us. It is a violation of U.S. law for the Trump Administration to attack a country that has not attacked us, as only Congress can declare war. The Trump administration is nevertheless beating the war drums for war against Iran and Venezuela. Should a war criminal, John Bolton, convince Trump to attack either of these countries, such a military strike would demand an immediate and unequivocal response from us to show that we will not tolerate his abuse of power.
Let's mobilize to show that we the people will not tolerate another military adventure, which would be bound to have profound negative consequences. If a military strike against Iran or Venezuela takes place, then meet at 33rd and N. Charles St., Baltimore 21218. If the attack is before 2 PM local time, then the event will begin at 5 PM, local time. If the attack occurs after 5 PM local time, then the event will begin at 5 PM, local time, the following day.

“One is called to live nonviolently, even if the change one works for seems impossible. It may or may not be possible to turn the US around through nonviolent revolution. But one thing favors such an attempt: the total inability of violence to change anything for the better" - Daniel Berrigan
