Tomorrow, 7pm at the Quaker Meeting House, 823 North A Street, Lake Worth, will be the monthly PBCEC meeting.
This will be my last meeting for a few months. as i will be joining the cross-country Earth First! Spring Roadshow to spread the word far and wide about our grassroots movement down here in the swamps and on the coasts of South Florida
So, it would be great to see you all there, and of course, there is plenty to talk about..

*Capitol City Coal Action in D.C. March 2 DO folks from PBC want to carpool up for this action?
"There are moments in a nation’s — and a planet’s — history when it may be necessary for some to break the law in order to bear witness to an evil, bring it to wider attention, and push for its correction. We think such a time has arrived, and we are writing to say that we hope some of you will join us in Washington, D.C. on Monday, March 2, in order to take part in a civil act of civil disobedience outside a coal-fired power plant near Capitol Hill."
-Bill McKibben and Wendell Berry
