 You’ll have the option to choose when and how you want to participate and whether or not you want to join in civil disobedience as part of the sit-in (there are options for everyone!) This is the next step in our fight to END FOSSIL FUELS. 

 Last September, 75,000+ people marched in New York City and sent a clear message to President Biden:  END FOSSIL FUELS. That means saying no to every new fossil fuel project.  Right now, the Biden administration is considering whether to approve over 20 LNG (aka. fracked gas) export facilities.

24] -- Food & Water Watch [] wants you to think about  How California's Climate Policy is Driving a National Factory Farm Gas Bonanza on Tues., Feb. 6 at 3 PM ET. RSVP at

Factory farm gas, often called biogas, is an elaborate and highly profitable greenwashing scheme that encourages the expansion of polluting factory farms at the expense of the climate, environmental justice, and sustainable family farming. At a time when people across the country are demanding an end to factory farming, California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) is driving the buildout of dirty biogas projects far beyond the state's borders. 

To be continued.
