Spurred by 350.org and their climate-changing actions, this year Louisville will have its own Moving Planet event, a “day to move beyond fossil fuels.” The idea is to congregate at a central location on foot, by bike, skates, or some other form of “clean” transportation (bus or carpool being the lesser alternative) and support initiatives for lessening our dependence on fossil fuels in our respective communities.
Louisville’s own celebration is happening on Saturday, September 24 (same as the national day of action) at the Jefferson Square Park (6th and Jefferson) in downtown Louisville at 4:00pm. The organizers (who recently got arrested as part of the Tar Sands protests – way to go guys!) write:
Rally with us at 4 pm as we ask the Mayor to support a list of “LocalMotions” that would reduce our transportation-based fossil fuel use, clean our air, and enhance our community. There will be music, surprises, and more!
Come be part of the Louisville manifestation of a world-wide movement to wean our world off fossil fuels…for the sake of human beings and all life on our moving planet.
For those wishing to ride together or walk together, there will be meet-ups at Bike Couriers Bike Shop in Clifton, Heine Bros. Douglas Loops and Heine Bros. Longest Ave, as well as the Green Building. You can RSVP and get more info by visiting the Facebook event or sign-up directly here.
Louisville, let’s do this!
