Will Gore take part in civil disobedience?


From Alternet we get this article about Al Gore possibly considering a civil disobedience protest:

Rainforest Action Network issued the invitation to the former U.S. vice president, according to RAN executive director Michael Brune. The San Francisco-based group has a twenty year history of protesting against destructive logging practices and other causes of climate change; it specializes in targeting corporations as much as governments.

*snip*

Gore’s office confirmed that the former vice president had received RAN’s invitation and was considering it, though no decision has been made. “He has not accepted any of their offers to date,” Kalee Kreider, a spokeswoman for Gore, said of the RAN offer. Kreider did not deny that this phrasing leaves open the possibility of Gore saying yes down the road.

I would have SO much more respect for Al Gore if he participates. I already support his cause of global warming..but other than that, he is a big fan of the corporatocracy, just like all the Rethugs, Hillary and most of the Democratic Candidates.

Regarding the Live Earth sponsors…

One..lol..is Chevy. Does anyone else see the irony in this? They are one of the 3 sponsors for the online webcast.

The same manufacturer that lobby’s their fucking ass off against clean air, and better cafe’ standards for our vehicles. They fight us tooth and nail to switch to alternative methods of powering the all-mighty automobile…

But aside from a little hypocrisy there, it was, contrary to the reichwingers I read today whilst surfing…a big success. Every venue, and I watched them all, was filled with Giants stadium packed like sardines. So anyone on the right that didn’t actually watch it can kiss my sweet ass. The LAT has a decent writeup about it here.

The band Nunatak from Antarctica performed live from..Antartica. The band’s performance of their self-written song “Would You Do It All Again” was beamed into the stadium from the scientists’ (and part-time musicians’) research station on the frozen continent. The band performed in fingerless gloves, parkas and knit caps from atop a glowing icecap in sub-zero weather with a pale pink Antarctic sky as their backdrop.-It was freaking awesome.

There was plenty of recycled materials used to build the stage and backdrops, like recycled vehicle tires. They also bombarded the crowds with constant messages about the 7 simple things they can do to make our world a better place for everyone. It was quite well done and quite constant..perhaps I would of hated it if I was at the concert, but it wasn’t very distracting online…but that WAS the point of the concerts..awareness.
