> Dear friends,
> Avaaz members have registered a staggering 1000 events in 88 countries for
> Monday's great global climate wake up call!
> A thousand events is impressive, but if hundreds of thousands of us come to
> them on Sept. 21st -- we'll send an historic flood of grass roots messages
> to world leaders meeting the next day in New York, just in time to revive
> dangerously flagging climate talks.
> This Monday, join the great global wake-up call -- let's come together for a
> few minutes in public places worldwide to press leaders to get climate
> negotiations back on track!
> Some of the events are major, like screenings of the new climate film The
> Age of Stupid -- but most are very short "flash" events -- taking just 5
> minutes during our lunch hour or on the way home from work. They're fun,
> politically powerful, and we can meet other great Avaaz people of all ages
> and walks of life. No preparation needed -- just come along and bring
> friends! The planet needs us, let's get together and save it -- click below
> to find an event nearby:
> If there isn't an event near you, click below to host your own global
> wake-up call event!
> Our call is for leaders to sign an ambitious, fair and binding global treaty
> that will stop a climate catastrophe. Next week is the last time our leaders
> are scheduled to meet this year on climate! With their negotiations way off
> track, it really does depend on us. Let's amaze them.
> See you on the 21st,
> Paul, Iain, Graziela, Ricken, Alice J, Ben, Milena, Brett, Taren, Pascal,
> Paula, Benji, Alice W, Luis, Raluca, Milena, Veronique, Chris, Margaret,
> Julius, and the rest of the Avaaz team
> PS: Images and videos from the Global Wake-Up Call events will be combined,
> in a matter of hours, into a short movie to be shown in 700 satellite-linked
> cinemas at the Age of Stupid's global premiere! The screenings are one night
> only, September 21 in the US and Sept 22 in 40+ other countries. You can
> find the screenings right on the Wake-Up Call event map at
> http://www.avaaz.org/en/tcktcktck_map. For more information about the Age of
> Stupid movie (and to buy tickets), see: http://www.ageofstupid.net/.
> PPS The Global Wake-Up Call is an open, creative day of action which depends
> on the energy and ingenuity of all of us -- so it's also each one of ours to
> take and run with. If you think you can involve a leader, well-known public
> personality or organisation; if you have a theatre, dance or art group which
> could stage its own eye-catching moment in a public place; if you can ask
> your church or another institution to ring its bells or want to invite
> colleagues to join you for a wake-up flashmob at or outside your workplace,
> or make your own unique contribution to the wake-up call in some other way
> we haven't even imagined -- go ahead! Don't wait for our approval - just
> register your plan with us by emailing it to open21 at avaaz.org.
