    Democracy Spring –
    It’s time to take mass nonviolent action on a historic scale to save our democracy. Next April, in Washington, D.C., we will demand that Congress take immediate action to end the corruption of big money in politics and ensure free and fair elections in which every American has an equal voice.

    The campaign will begin with a march from the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. where, if Congress has failed to meet our demand, thousands will gather to reclaim the US Capitol in a powerful, peaceful, and massive sit-in that no one can ignore. Over 1,000 people have already pledged to risk arrest in what will be one of the largest civil disobedience actions in a generation.

  6. Excellent interview. Th I am very happy to see Linzey is working to empower communities with strategic nonviolent civil resistance tools in addition to his Rights of Nature work. One very successful campaign of resistance comes from Quebec where they have held the frackers off for years. My partner, Rivera Sun, wrote a report on their activists strategies here… http://www.riverasun.com/rockers-not-frackers-quebecs-creative-resistance-to-fracking/
