Earth Week Messages

Today starts Earth Week.

Given the total bullshit likely to spew from all quarters, we are going on General Strike for the week here at WolfeNotes.com.

We’ll be on our bicycle, in the woods, and maybe in the garden, but not our blog.

Until we return next week, we leave readers with these messages, which are all largely ignored fundamental elements in the multiple fights for environmental and public health integrity and political sanity:

1) Important new book by Mark Hertsgaard – read the book and watch the interview on Democracy Now!: “Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth”

Watch/listen to Bill McKibben – founder of 350.org – speak at Powershift.

2) We will make no progress until people begin to understand and act upon the radical evils Chris Hedges discusses in this superb address at the US Uncut Tax Day Protest at the Bank Of America in NYC. Watch the YouTube here.

3) US Uncut is one of the most exciting new spontaneous movements happening right now. Their direct action tactics are vitally needed as pushback to complete corporate control – but direct action needs intellectual ammunition.

Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone has told the story of greed and corruption so many times now, that even theĀ NY Times has recently reported about major multi-billion profitable corporations, like GE, paying no taxes.

That story is told more broadly in the book “Treasure Islands” by Nicholas Shaxson. Read the book and watch an interview with the author on Democracy Now!: Offshore Banking and Tax Havens Have Become Heart of Global Economy

4) It doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom – direct action and open rebellion can be FUN!. Watch the Youtube of a flashmob in San Francisco Bank of America.

Watch also direct action against BP on the first anniversary of the gulf blowout.

Until we meet again. (and below are photos of your state Capitol yesterday, which was in lockdown due to about 30 Nazi scumbags who defiled the State House steps).

Is this what a Police State looks like?

    Hey, I didn’t know Chris Hedges spoke at that other event, I’ll check it out now. Check out the video I shot also at the Oakland BofA on MOnday…

    Looks like Sacramento when the biotech convention was in town. Minus the rain.
