Moving Planet Rally, Flash Mob, and Dance Party!

Check out this awesome event at Cornell TOMORROW! Some of us are biking there from IC around 11-something -- text me (Margaret) at 443.907.8296 if you want to join us by bike, or take the TCAT (directions here)!

On Friday, September 23, we are celebrating the move past fossil fuels and into a clean energy future with a rally on Ho Plaza. In coordination with campuses across New York, we'll be calling on Governor Cuomo to ban hydrofracking and to be our champion in leading New York to a clean energy future. We'll also be calling on Cornell to lead local clean energy alternatives to fracking which will create strong, dependable jobs in the green economy.

Students and community members will rally on Cornell University’s Ho Plaza for the Moving Planet day of climate action, organized for a third year by the global climate movement, Moving Planet is worldwide rally in 176 countries to call for solutions to climate change. The rally will “flash mob” from Ho Plaza to Day Hall, where students will request a meeting with President Skorton.

Bring your roller blades, long boards, and bikes - or rent a bike from Cornell's Big Red Bikes - and get ready to move. Most importantly, bring your body. The time is now to dance, race, boogie, and move beyond fossil fuels! And keep your eye out for a flashmob...
