Take Action Now

The stage is set. The press is reporting that global climate talks are 
in a shambles and the UN summit on Tuesday is the only hope to revive 

And together, by Tuesday morning, we'll make sure leaders at that 
summit wake up to news that over 1500 rallies, marches, meetings and 
"flashmobs" across the planet have flooded the airwaves and their office 
phone lines with a wake up call for them to act.

an event nearby -- it's easy, fun, could take just 5 minutes of our lunch 
hour, and it will matter. This is going to be big, don't miss it:


have just 78 days left until the final UN meeting in Copenhagen, where we'll 
succeed or fail to get an historic global treaty to place binding global limits 
on carbon pollution, stop a climate catastrophe and unleash a new clean and 
green economy. Our leaders are nowhere near success, they're not even planning 
on going to Copenhagen. Let's send them a wake up call they won't 

(In Charlottetown, PEI the Wake-Up Call  will be Monday Sept 21, 
the Canfield Building 191 University Avenue; 12 noon. 

Looking forward to it...

Ricken, Iain, Milena, 
Veronique, Paul, Ben, Graziela, Pascal and the whole Avaaz team.

PS - an 
amazing diversity of wake up call events are happening on Monday, from a 
drumming circle in Guatemala to a coastal ceremony in French Polynesia to a 
march in Kinshasa. But one exciting global event is the premiere of the new 
climate change film The Age of Stupid. 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 over 40 other countries. You can find screenings near you along with 
all our global wake up call events. For more information about the Age of 
Stupid movie (and to buy tickets), see: http://www.ageofstupid.net


Avaaz.org is a 
new global web movement with a simple democratic mission: to close the gap 
between the world we have, and the world most people everywhere want. 
“Avaaz” means “Voice” in many Asian, Middle Eastern and  Eastern European languages.   
Across the world, most people want stronger protections for the 
environment, greater respect for human rights, and concerted efforts to end 
poverty, corruption and war. Yet globalization faces a huge democratic deficit 
as international decisions are shaped by political elites and unaccountable 
corporations -- not the views and values of the world’s 

Technology and the internet have allowed citizens to connect and 
mobilize like never before. The rise of a new model of internet-driven, 
people-powered politics is changing countries from Australia to the Philippines 
to the United States. Avaaz takes this model global, connecting people across 
borders to bring people powered politics to international 

Coming together in this way, Avaaz has become a 
wonderful community of people from all nations, backgrounds, and ages. Our 
diverse community is brought together by our care for the world, and a desire to 
do what we can to make it a better place. 
In just one year, Avaaz has grown to over 3.5 million  members in every nation of the world.   
The core of our model of organizing is our email list, operated in 13 
languages. By signing up to receive our alerts, you are rapidly alerted to 
urgent global issues and opportunities to achieve change. Avaaz members respond 
by rapidly combining the small amounts of time or money they can give into a 
powerful collective force. In just hours we can send hundreds of thousands of 
messages to political leaders telling them to save a crucial summit on climate change , hold 
hundreds of rallies across the world calling for action to prevent a genocide, 
or donate hundreds of thousands of euros, dollars and yen to support nonviolent 
protest in Burma. Click here to see a list of our 
campaigns and impact in 2007.

In less than three years, we’ve grown to 
over 3.5 million members, and have begun to make a real impact on global 
politics. The Economist writes that Avaaz is poised to deliver “a deafening wake 
up call” to world leaders, the Indian Express welcomes “the biggest web 
campaigner across the world” and Nobel Prize winner Al Gore says “Avaaz is 
inspiring, and has already begun to make a
