Drinking Liberally Eau Claire is a meeting of progressives in the Chippewa Valley who get together every month to talk about politics, the state of the world, and whatever else is interesting them at the moment.  It's informal, it's friendly, and it's a good time. Come meet with people who care about the state of the world and are interested in doing something about it.  We meet once a month.  Sometimes there's a guest.  Sometimes there isn't.  But there's always a great conversation.

Keystone XL pipeline action training

Date: 
Sat, 12/07/2013 - 12:00am - 5:30pm

The U.S. State Department is expected to issue its draft National Interest Determination (NID) in 2014 on whether the President should approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. In the event the State Department recommends approval, more than 100 civil disobedience actions will be triggered across the country. The goal of these actions is to show the President the American people don't want this pipeline, and to convince him to deny the permit. Locally, we are holding a training session for anyone wishing to participate in the peaceful civil disobedience action in Madison. Attendance at this training is required for anyone wishing to risk arrest during the civil disobedience action, but is also for those who want to help but cannot risk arrest.

WHAT:

No Keystone XL Pipeline Pledge of Resistance Training

 

WHEN:

Saturday, December 7, 2013

12 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
