When I see stupid people standing across a railroad track, I hope that the train comes through really fast. They look like miniature bowling pins.
"Over the past few years weve witnessed a rising tide of courage from the frontlines; communities from the pinewoods of East Texas to the hollers of West Virginia have come together to defend the land and the people from the ravages of extreme energy. Yet with every new frack-well drilled, pipeline laid, and mountain blasted, the extraction industry pushes our planet closer to irreversible tipping points.
But now we are coming together as a movement to push back.
For too long we have struggled separately and we are running out of time. If we are going to reclaim our future, we must begin to speak with one voice. Thats why we are calling for the national movement against extreme energy to join in a summer of coordinated action.
As this industry continues to escalate its attack of life on earth, we must respond by asserting our dignity and escalating our action for a livable future. In the face of unfathomable ecological destruction and looming runaway climate change, we must take the kind of bold action that is necessary to save the planet. We must all draw our lines in the sand. We must face our fears together. We must take our future fearlessly into our hands and change business as usual."
