MLK Rides the #WaveOfAction

I hope and I pray that you will join us. (read more)
World Wide Wave of Action looks to New Iberia, Louisiana, Dylan Ratigan The World Wide Wave of Action is a push to evolve awareness; millions from all backgrounds coming together to express their vision for a better more connected world. Russell Brand describes it as the ultimate evolution in consciousness. I hope the essence of this cause becomes an expansion of thinking by people from all cultures. World Wide Wave of Action should focus on manifesting local solutions… here is a direct example of what I imagine the World Wide Wave of Action could inspire, if we the people expand our thinking and act with conscious precision.

Making Waves Across Our Nation and the World, Jacob Devaney This has come to a head, first with Citizens United, and now with McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission. Though it is a coup d’etat for private enterprise that has seized control of the commons and our republic, it is a sand-castle alone on the beach as a wave crests above it. Thankfully we live in the digital era and there is a world wide wave of action beginning on April 4th. (read more)
Riding The Wave Of Action, Rivera Sun On April 4th, the worldwide Wave of Action launches, rolling out sequences of nonviolent actions, gatherings, and events for three months until the final crescendo on July 4th. With over 600 organizations around the world participating, it seems likely that the swell of activity will demonstrate how much the Movement of Movements for social, economic, political and environmental justice has grown.

Waves of Nationwide Actions Planned at Key Historic Moment, Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers By expanding our ongoing protests, resistance and creation of the world we want to see during this time period and acting under a common banner of the #WaveOfAction people will see that rather than shrinking, as the media would like people to believe, the popular movement for social, economic and environmental justice is actually growing. This is the reality of our times: the world is facing multiple crises at the same time. As the popular movement intentionally escalates its actions, we will be in position to highlight these crises and to quickly escalate further if events occur that create an opportunity for rapid growth. These are times that demand each of us to step up and do more. The opportunities for rapid growth of the social movement created by the dysfunction of the rule- by-money-government are increasing in ways we can only imagine. (read more)

#WaveOfAction Is Coming, The Time Is Now To Prepare, David Swanson If there was ever a moment to put survival and well-being ahead of politeness and obedience, this is that moment. The weather is right. The climate is right. The experience is fresh, but the participants rested. April 4th is opening day. Will you throw out the first pitch in your town? Will you do it now? Will you re-occupy everything and never give it back? This is not for show this time. This is not to send a message. This is not to make a few friends. This is to make millions of friends. This is to change the course of our culture. This is the big leagues. Rest up. Get ready. Know your power. (read more)

“Thursday March 20th’s vibration (20+3+2+0+1+4) = 30/3.”—
Happy Spring/Autumn Equinox! 3’s geometric blueprint is the TRIANGLE, the generator of LIGHT. The triangle forms the shape of the Pyramid, and the word Pyre means FIRE. The Triangle is the first enclosed form that appears in Creation, and is therefore often referred to as the “Mother of Creation”, because it is the surface through which all other shapes are birthed into creation. The warmth generated by 3’s fiery energy will be most welcome in the northern hemisphere after the harsh winter endured there! And for us in the southern hemisphere, the Autumn equinox brings the rich harvest, with 3’s energy ripening the grapes on the vine! The creative fecundity of 3’s energy is represented in the 3rd card of the tarot, The Empress: the Mother Goddess, representing the abundant flourishing of Nature, and reflecting the cyclicity of life, death and rebirth. The Empress is ruled by Venus, and Venus seeks to harmonise and balance through love and compassion. Jupiter is ruled by the number 3 because Jupiter seeks to expand awareness and support humanity through ordered growth and multiplication, which is what the energy of the 3 does through the process of Triangulation. When Jupiter and Venus meet, creative abundance overflows, and fertility reigns. While under the influence of the 3 the warmth and creativity of LIGHT seeks its expression through you, so today you will be able to freely express yourself, in fact you will demand freedom of expression: you will feel the need to speak your mind and you will expect others to do the same, too. There is a need to focus your creative energy on worthwhile projects – spreading yourself too thinly will dull your creative impact. A controlled fire provides warmth and enlightenment and sustains life. But a fire that is allowed to burn out of control creates havoc and damage before eventually burning itself out. We also have the presence of the zero with 30, and the zero is the symbol of the Monad, the circle of perfection that represents the God consciousness before creation began. The zero and the circle represent the Absolute, the I AM consciousness, and this state of awareness can be accessed today. The zero offers the divine protection of this all-pervading consciousness, and will manifest itself in you as a deep-seated feeling of Faith. The energy of the 30th card in the Tarot, the Four of Wands shows four wands planted firmly in the ground, anchoring the creative energy of the 3 into something tangible and secure. A meeting of minds and a strong loving union is expressed by the two figures in the card, each celebrating the other. This marriage signifies the balance between sun and moon, left brain/right brain. Today can be very productive for you, and there is an air of celebration around, an aura of pride and accomplishment for jobs well done, everything is coming to fruition. In some areas of your life you will feel as though your work has been completed, and now you can reap the rewards. And with 3, you can always have fun!
Yesterday the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decided that the Department of the Interior violated the law when it opened almost 30 million acres of the outer continental shelf in the Chukchi Sea off the coast of Alaska to oil and gas drilling.

The court concluded the Department’s estimate of one billion barrels of recoverable oil under the frozen Arctic ocean was “chosen arbitrarily” and that the Interior Department “based its decision on inadequate information about the amount of oil to be produced pursuant to the lease sale.”
It went on to say that the agency had analyzed “only the best case scenario for environmental harm, assuming oil development,” and that this analysis “skews the data toward fewer environmental impacts, and thus impedes a full and fair discussion of the potential effects of the project.”
A coalition of more than fifteen Alaska Native and environmental groups including Earthjustice, Center for Biological Diversity and Alaska Wilderness League, took the case following the George W. Bush Administration’s 2008 sale, only to have it struck down in federal court. In 2011, the Obama Administration moved it forward again, but the coalition swiftly challenged it through the courts.
“Drilling for oil in the Chukchi Sea poses an enormous risk to the region’s people and wildlife,” said Greenpeace Arctic Campaign Leader Gustavo Ampugnani. “It locks us into a dangerous and dirty fossil fuel future, and it pushes us far closer to global climate catastrophe and the imminent hazards of extreme weather.”
The verdict will hamper Shell’s plans in the Arctic, and comes just a week after the company issued a profit warning variously described as “disastrous” and “dreadful” in the financial press.
“Shell—one of the world’s largest companies—has so far spent $5 billion dollars on this perilous Arctic folly,” said Ampugnani. “As the whole world watched, their bold Arctic expedition in 2012 became a global laughing stock, as giant rigs broke free from their moorings and beached on Alaskan shores, dire storm warnings were ignored, and multiple health, safety and environmental regulations were breached.”
“This decision should give President Obama pause to reconsider the dangerous path he’s heading down by opening up the precious Arctic to rapacious oil giants,” Ampugnani continued. “If he wants to live up to his inspiring words on tackling climate change and protecting America’s stunning natural environment for future generations, he should put an end to this dangerous oil rush to the ends of the earth.”
