Thursday, December 4th, 2008








500 4th Street San Francisco, CA

9pm $7


Hey fellow activists!

Please join me for the Day of Action for Climate Solutions on Dec 6th,
12noon at Crissy Fields.

I am organizing a rally and march as part of the International Day of
Action for Climate Solutions on Saturday, Dec 6th, 12:00PM, Crissy
Fields, San Francisco.
We're holding a 30 by 50 foot banner with a message to our world
leaders: We are Ready to Save the Climate! Yes We Can! I need you
and 10 friends! We need at least 300 people to be able to hold up
this massive banner. We'll have a helicopter flying overhead so we
can get a powerful shot to send to Poland for crucial climate
negotiations going on at the same time.

Please join me! RSVP now!
Saturday, Dec 6th 12:00PM
Crissy Fields, San Francisco, 94129
Meet in the parking lot of Planet Granite:

*PLEASE forward widely! RSVP and invite facebook friends!



This December, world leaders will be meeting in Poznan, Poland for the
UN Climate Change Conference to decide the next steps on tackling
global warming. It's a perfect opportunity for President-elect Obama
to send a clear message to the rest of the world that the U.S. is
ready to be part of the solution. That's why on December 6th
Greenpeace members will be joining people throughout the world for an
International Day of Action for Climate Solutions. In the U.S., we'll
be holding rallies and taking photos at iconic locations in over 30
cities to send a message to the President-elect that the American
people support strong action on global warming.

What better way to send that message than with a massive 30 by 50 foot
postcard -- letting our world leaders know that here in San Francisco
we're ready for climate solutions! And, they'll know it's from us
because we're posing in front of the Golden Gate Bridge.

We'll have a few speakers, we'll take a massive group photo with our
custom made 30 x 50 ft. banner, and we'll march across the Golden Gate
Bridge. The very next day, our Greenpeace activists in Poland will
deliver the photos of YOUR rally to climate negotiators, sending the
message that Americans are ready for climate solutions.

Show President-elect Obama you're serious about global warming and
RSVP for the day of action in San Francisco today.

If you have any questions, you can contact Anna Wagner at



$5-$100 (or more if you've got it!)
Starts at 8, doors at 7:30
Party? Always happening!

It promises to be an awesome night of fun and fancy. There will be drinks and people you love. Bring some money cause its a fundraiser!!!

FOR WHAT?, You ask. WELL... The fundraiser is for us! If you've been in the space, you know that we have a 1500sf living room that has no windows or skylights. This can be very depressing, not to mention energy sucking. A few months ago a group of bicycle riders on a tour called "Ride Green, Build Green" stayed at our house for a few days. During that time I sat down with one of the riders while he explained to me that what we really needed was Solar Tubing in our livingroom. Solar tubes are basically tubes that run from the roof of the house to the ceiling of the livingroom all the while reflecting light so that natural daylight gets directed into the livingroom. We would be saving so much energy and making improvements to our lives through light (a very powerful change, I've notice). Additionally, we can put plants in the livingroom and make it a much more serene place for Jessie's Woletz's weekly Yoga class. This was a very exciting idea, unfortunately each solar tube costs in the area of $400. We will need three (two for the livingroom and one for our poor dear housemate Emily who also has no windows in her bedroom).

SO PLEASE PLEASE COME and bring all your friends. We're trying to keep the world a happy green healthy place with the power of the rock show. Show the world it can be done!!!!


list over.

thanks for reading!!

please pass this on.
