TRAINING FOR CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AT TD BANK (285 Broadway)
CREDO, Rain Forest Action Network, and The Other 98% are planning peaceful civil disobedience to take place if/when the State Department determines that construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline would be "in the national interest." Protesters will be risking arrest at State Dept. and other sites across the country in an attempt to keep President Obama from giving final approval for KXL. More info at www.nokxl.org.
There are currently four actions planned for NYC: at the US Mission to the UN (1st Ave. at 45th); at Federal Plaza (Bdwy and Thomas); at the State Dept./Passport office (376 Hudson); and at TD Bank (Bdwy and Warren). Trainings for these actions are being given on a rolling basis.
This announcement is for a training for the action planned for the TD Bank office at 285 Broadway. Contact Abraham Greene ([masked];[masked]).
Trainings for other locations will be announced when scheduled. Contact Pat Almonrode ([masked];[masked]) for more information.
PLEASE NOTE: you must attend a training to risk arrest in one of these actions. The trainings are scheduled to take about 6 hours, but they usually run shorter than that.
