Opportunity from the EarthQuakers


Join us for the Weekend of October 19-21.
At Merion Friends Meeting (Main Line Philadelphia).
Meals, Housing, Training Provided by Earth Quaker Action Team.

To prepare for a Day of Action
across the PNC Footprint
on December 1st.

Larry Gibson was nationally recognized as an inspirational leader in the movement to stop mountaintop removal. He spent over two decades working to preserve his family’s ancestral land on Kayford Mountain, despite continued harassment, including arson and violence. Larry passed away of a heart attack in early September; he was 66. (Donate to Larry’s Foundation and legacy, the Keepers of the Mountains, here.)
 

Our campaign is called Bank Like Appalachia Matters – and we need YOU to join the fight against mountaintop removal and other forms of extreme extraction, and the banks that finance and profit from these industries.

By the end of the weekend, you will be able to:
• Understand more about what nonviolent direct action is (and is not)
• Develop strategies for applying what you learn
• Describe the dangers and injustices of mountaintop removal and other extreme extraction methods
• Design and build a nonviolent action for your community (with EQAT’s help)
• Build a stronger network of allies in your Quaker meeting and/or home town
• Deepen your spiritual practice and apply it to your activism
