49] –Global Actions against the Myanmar Junta
[email@example.com] is inviting you to a conference on Thur., Jan.
20 at 6 AM ET. The Myanmar junta is able to fund the military and purchase
weapons to slaughter civilians with funds from natural gas projects collected
by the Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE). If sanctions were imposed on gas
revenues, the effect on the junta’s finances would be significant. Civil
society organizations in Myanmar, South Korea, Australia, ASEAN, the EU, the
United States and the United Kingdom want to urge the United States and France to
impose sanctions on gas revenues through a global campaign. As part of the
campaign, we’re holding a conference to discuss more details about the issues.
The topics below will be discussed at the conference: What is stopping the
European Commission from passing the recommendation to sanction MOGE?ASEAN on Myanmar in 2022 - how can they help?
What about corporations and their complicity in atrocities by the Myanmar
military. The Myanmar citizens are asking for sanctions on MOGE. Registration
is at https://bit.ly/gasrevenue.

55] – CCAN
[email@example.com] is inviting you to a Power Hour on fighting
climate change on Thurs., Jan. 20 at 6:30 PM ET. Sign up at
https://act.chesapeakeclimate.org/page/37290/data/1?utm_medium=email&utm_source=engagingnetworks&utm_campaign=utm_Membership&utm_content=MEM-JanPowerHour-Hotlist-0122-C3+B&ea.url.id=1133891. Climate change kills over 100 people every 6
hours worldwide. Here at home, we face major challenges in
Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. We have an opportunity to pass historic
climate legislation in Maryland and Congress. Yet, in Virginia, we have to
resist an administration seeking to dismantle some of the strongest climate
legislation in the country. We must act NOW!
Thurs., Jan. 20 at 7 PM EST, the Jewish
Islamic Dialogue Society will discuss the incident at a synagogue in
Colleyville, Texas. When a Muslim man who expects to “be going to Jannah”
deliberately targets a synagogue for an act of hostage taking, he illustrates
how our family of Abraham/Ibrahim has been shaken to the core by hatred and
ignorance. JIDS has been combatting that attitude throughout the 13 years
of its existence. Come together as a community of Muslims, Jews and
Allies to affirm what it means to be cousins – to become, in short, part of the
solution, and not merely to be counted among those who lament the problem and
then tend to our own garden. Examine a book of two intrepid Jewish-Islamic
dialogue advocates, Walter Ruby and Sabeeha Rehman, who will attend. The
book is aptly titled: “We Refuse to Be Enemies: How Muslims and Jews Can Make
Peace, One Friendship at a Time.” RSVP by contacting Abdul Khan at firstname.lastname@example.org. To read more about this
book, go to https://www.amazon.com/We-Refuse-Be-Enemies-Friendship/dp/1951627334. Check out www.jids.org.
