READ THE CALL: CLIMATE DIRECT ACTION
Federal scientists have concluded that we've just come through the warmest six months, the warmest year, and the warmest decade in human history. Nineteen nations have set new all-time temperature records; the mercury in Pakistan reached 129 degrees, the hottest temperature ever seen in Asia. And there's nothing abstract about those numbers, not with Moscow choking on smoke from its epic heat wave and fires, not with Pakistan half washed away from its unprecedented flooding.

Tell the Forest Service not to privatize Bagby and 27 campgrounds
 http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/1810/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=5546

The Forest Service has proposed to privatize management of Bagby Hot Springs and 27 campgrounds in Mt. Hood National Forest.

Babgy Hot Springs is the only free hot spring in the area and is one of our region's gems. Under this proposal, for-profit companies will manage and profit from our favorite places to relax.

Screenings of END:CIV in Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle
flyer for olympia events END:CIV examines our culture's addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. Based in part on Endgame, the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, END:CIV asks: "If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?" The causes underlying the collapse of civilizations are usually traced to overuse of resources. As we write this, the world is reeling from economic chaos, peak oil, climate change, environmental degradation, and political turmoil. Every day, the headlines re-hash stories of scandal and betrayal of the public trust. We don't have to make outraged demands for the end of the current global system - it seems to be coming apart already.
