  • Our Local Fracking Group
  • The movie Gasland will be available for groups, churches, anywhere good citizens of any political leaning are found. Fracking is already active in our Brazos Valley, and it’s always best to be aware how it could affect us all, whether or not there is a well on (under) your property. Gasland will also be shown at TAMU.

    A facebook page and web page are in preparation, and we will have resources to answer inquiries. Materials will be available in both local public libraries. If you want to be on the mailing list, contact Lynn at the Peach Clubhouse, MLLamoreux@hotmail.com

  • The Waco Friends of Peace
  • FOURTH OF JULY PEACE ACTION, 2011 – Several FOP members are interested in an action for peace on this Monday, July 4th. The day typically celebrates war and militarism. We propose instead a celebration of the end of war. The true end of U.S. wars and occupations. Can you commit to 2 hours the afternoon of July 4th, at the corner of Valley Mills Drive and Hwy 84? Before you run up there tomorrow, check with Alan to make sure it’s still on http://www.friendsofpeace.org

  • In Benicia, California
  • , citizens came together to develop a Climate Action Plan. They presented it for approval to the city, and then to the citizens of the city in a series of five meetings entitled “Stewards of our Children’s Future.” Then they sent copies of all that work to us. I am inspired and would be happy to share these DVDs.
