Energy Exodus: March from Coal and Gas to Cape Wind
EVENT DATE: Aug 28, 2013
On August 28, 2013, a large group of New Englanders will converge at Kennedy Park in Fall River near the largest coal and gas-fired plant in the region. There they will begin a 6-day march to Barnstable, MA, the seat of opposition to Cape Wind, the nation’s first off-shore wind project. Better Future Project, a fiscally sponsored project of Open Space Institute is the lead organization for the action.
This event will dramatize the urgency with which we must turn away from fossil fuels and march toward a future full of sustainable jobs, clean air, healthy communities, and local, renewable energy. Along the way we will rally, sing, learn, hatch new plans, and make new friends. And by the end of our journey, we will have gained so much more than 70 miles; we will have built our movement stronger than it’s ever been before, and will have shown the way to the safe clean energy future that we so desperately need to ensure a liveable climate.
Would you help finance the march by fundraising for Energy Exodus?
Pulling off the march will take more than our bodies - it will take food, equipment, showers, port-a-potties, and much else. Donating to Energy Exodus will pay for equipment, food, staff time and give us the ability to support hundreds of marchers. Could you fundraise to support 5 of your best friends to march for a day?($150)
