Cooling a fevered planet: the politics & economics of solving the climate crisis.
We know the danger. We have the technology. So what's stopping us?

When big corporations thwart democracy they also thwart sustainability.
When resources are poured into unnecessary wars rather than peaceful solutions, this also drains investment from needed green infrastructure.
How corporate power, militarization are linked to the climate crisis, and how we can fight back.
The Olympia Movement for Justice and Peace has wanted to mark the 4,000th U.S. military death in Iraq. During its meeting on Wednesday evening March 26, OMJP decided to mark this milestone by participating in the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s regularly scheduled peace vigil this coming Friday the 28th from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the south end of Percival Landing (4th & Water), in downtown Olympia.
The Olympia FOR is happy to welcome OMJP’s participation. We’re also welcoming some local supporters of the Tibetan people’s longing for cultural autonomy and respect. From time to time other groups participate in the Olympia FOR’s vigil, and we like to let new folks know about this Olympia tradition. We have been vigiling there since November 1998 – initially seeking to raise public awareness of the economic sanctions the previous Bush and Clinton imposed against Iraq.
The Olympia FOR has worked in our local community since 1976 (32 years) to promote peace and social justice. The FOR’s international level (www.ifor.org) and national level (www.forusa.org) have worked courageously and nonviolently since 1914-1915 (beginning of world War I). The FOR has nonviolently opposed all wars from World War I onward.

The Olympia-based Citizens Movement to Impeach Bush/Cheney will meet again THIS COMING MONDAY FEBRUARY 4 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Olympia Center, 222 Columbia NW in downtown Olympia. Instead of our usual meeting room, we’ve been scheduled for Room 103.
We’re developing the evening’s agenda to help make more progress on all four of our major strategies:
~ Reaching out to the public in many ways to inform them and build the impeachment movement
~ Focusing public pressure on our local Congressmen, Brian Baird and Adam Smith to persuade them to support impeachment
~ Urging the U.S. House Judiciary Committee and other Congressional leaders to support impeachment
~ Supporting SJM 8016 and HJM 4027 in our Washington State Legislature, which would have our Legislature urge Congress to support impeachment
