SEPTEMBER 2015

Fall 2015 - Flood, blockade, occupy and shut down the systems that jeopardize our future!

--> www.floodthesystem.net <--

Starting this September, Rising Tide North America is calling for mass actions to shut down the economic and political systems threatening our survival.

Already, hundreds of thousands are streaming into the streets to fight back against climate chaos, capitalism and white supremacy.

This wave of resistance couldn’t be more urgent. To stop climate chaos we need a phenomenal escalation in organizing, participation and tactical courage. We need a profound social transformation to uproot the institutions of capitalism, colonialism, patriarchy, and white supremacy, the systems that created the climate crisis. And we need to link arms with allies fighting for migrant justice, dignified work and pay, and an end to the criminalization and brutal policing of black and brown bodies.

We need to #FloodTheSystem.


Taking Action Against War In Washington, DC This September

For our planet, the war-ravaged, and the poor we will sow the seeds of hope for Photo by National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistancepeace.
Guided by conscience, reason, and deeply held convictions, we call upon people of good will to come to Washington, DC
on Tuesday September 22, 2015 to actively participate in a witness of nonviolent civil resistance calling on Congress and the White House to take meaningful action as we confront the climate crisis, the unending wars, the root causes of poverty, and the structural violence of the military-security state. There will be an occupation of a Congressional office, followed by direct action at the White House.

Dear Friend of The Nation,

Join us as we travel to Havana, Cuba and surrounding towns on September 26 for a truly unique experience specially curated for fellow Nation travelers. Recent and historic changes in US policy toward the island nation promise to make this a particularly inspiring and extraordinary time to experience the people, politics, culture, and history of Cuba in a way few ever have before.

Our week long itinerary will include museum tours with eminent art and cultural historians; seminars and lectures featuring renowned Cuban economists, government officials, community activists, physicians, and urban planners; a meeting and discussion with the Cuban Five, the intelligence agents considered national heroes after spending many years imprisoned in US jails; exclusive concerts with popular jazz artists, troubadours, and folk musicians; performances by students of Cuba’s internationally acclaimed ballet institutes; visits to artist’s colonies and studios; guided tours of Old Havana, the Latin American Medical School, and the University of Havana; and visits to many other inspiring locales and events.
