#FloodTheSystem
Sep 9, 2015

Fall 2015 - Flood, blockade, occupy and shut down the systems that jeopardize our future! --> www.floodthesystem.net <-- Starting this September, Rising Tide North America is calling for mass actions to shut down the economic and political systems threatening our survival. Already, hundreds of thousands are streaming into the streets to fight back against climate chaos, capitalism and white supremacy. This wave of resistance couldn’t be more urgent. To stop climate chaos we need a phenomenal escalation in organizing, participation and tactical courage. We need a profound social transformation to uproot the institutions of capitalism, colonialism, patriarchy, and white supremacy, the systems that created the climate crisis. And we need to link arms with allies fighting for migrant justice, dignified work and pay, and an end to the criminalization and brutal policing of black and brown bodies. We need to #FloodTheSystem. In the lead up to the United Nations climate talks in Paris, in December, we will escalate local and regional resistance against systems that threaten our collective survival. Together, we will open alternative paths to the failing negotiations of political elites. To do this, we are calling for individuals and groups to plan their own direct actions, attend trainings and convene Action Councils to stream smaller efforts into a massive flood of resistance. This is not another protest. It is a call for a massive economic and political intervention. It is a call to build the relationships needed to sustain our struggles for the long haul. To build popular power along the intersections of race, class, gender and ability. To collectively unleash our power and change everything. --- GET INVOLVED Sign up for updates here: http://www.FloodTheSystem.net #FloodTheSystem organizers are supporting the formation of local action councils that will organize actions relevant to their communities.
