Women’s March January 21, 2017

This effort is not anti-Trump,” Mallory said.
“This is pro-women. This is a continuation of a struggle women have been dealing with for a very long time. In this moment, we are connecting and being as loud as possible. —NPR

We stand together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore.— from https://womensmarchla.org/

Tonight Jan 12: Mni Wiconi Pacifica is hosting “Water and Oil Do Not Mix”


, , ,


WHEN: TONIGHT! Thursday, January 12th.
Doors open at 6:30 pm for meet and greet.
Program starts at 7 pm.

WHERE:  Unitarian-Universalist Church of Ventura,
5654 Ralston Ave, Ventura, 93003.
Fellowship hall; back parking lot.

WHO:  Presenters Kimberly Rivers, Executive Director for Citizens For Responsible Oil and Gas (CFROG), and
Tomás Morales Rebecchi, Ventura County Organizer for Food and Water Watch (FFW), Field Director/Co-Campaign Manager for Measure Z, a successful voter initiative to ban fracking in Monterey Co, and on CFROG’s Board.

Rivers will summarize a current project of CFROG, which involves monitoring the results of water testing being ordered by the State Water Resources Control Board near oil waste sump pits and waste injection wells and other actions to prevent and reduce negative oil and gas effects on our local water supply.

Rebecchi will talk about his experience in December at Standing Rock, North Dakota, supporting the resistance of indigenous people to the Dakota Access Pipeline being constructed on their sacred land and under the Missouri River, as well as county initiatives to ban fracking, cyclic steam injection, and acidizing of oil wells.

Mni Wiconi Pacifica is a new local organization inspired by the resistance of indigenous people at Standing Rock, North Dakota, to protect water from being polluted.

WHY: Burning fossil fuels causes climate disruption for hundreds of years. Water is calling for our protection, for Earth and all living beings. Indigenous people are demonstrating the power of prayerful, non-violent resistance to pollution of air and water.

There was a federal assessment that cleared the way for FRACKING up the California Coast. California just filed a lawsuit challenging that.


“We must take every possible step to protect our precious coastline and ocean,” said Attorney General Harris. “The U.S. Department of Interior’s inadequate environmental assessment would open the door to practices like fracking that may pose a threat to the health and well-being of California communities. We must balance our energy needs with our longstanding commitment to protecting our natural resources and public health.”  READ MORE
