President Trump’s proposal to shrink the Bears Ears National Monument leaves tens of thousands of sacred sites vulnerable to looting and grave robbing—the very threats the Antiquities Act was designed to protect against—as well as to fossil fuel development and uranium mining.” (Bears Ears Coalition News Release)

THE TIME IS NOW! Act to Help Preserve the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
Michael Cianos and Frank Escalona
Baltimore, MD

Dec 11, 2017 — Dear Supporters,

The moment is upon us to take action in our fight to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. PLEASE take a moment today to call the following House Representatives and urge them to continue their leadership and outspoken support for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge by doing everything they can to insist that Arctic drilling is removed from the bill.

PLEASE NOTE: The following representatives are already working to keep Arctic drilling out of the final bill. We are calling to THANK THEM and to REINFORCE THEIR EFFORTS. Our decision to call these individuals is a result of extensive research and deliberation.

Dan Donovan [R-NY]: (202) 225-3371
Frank Lobiondo [R-NJ]: (202) 225-6572
Brian Fitzpatrick [R-PA]: (202) 225-4276
Ryan Costello [R-PA]: (202) 225-4315

IF ASKED BY A RECORDING IF YOU ARE A CONSTITUENT, select “Yes.” Then tell them later that you are not, but that you are working in their district alongside environmental organizations to bring awareness to the Representatives’ views on this issue.

Remember, we’re working not only to protect the Arctic, but also to show that our democracy still works. The people DO NOT want drilling in the Arctic. Here is a poll from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication to prove it: http://climatecommunication.yale.edu/publications/americans-oppose-drilling-arctic-national-wildlife-refuge/

There is bipartisan alignment AGAINST this provision–we must not stop our fight now. Please take a few moments to call the numbers above, and tell your friends to do the same. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT UPDATE TO SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS.

Also, please share Robert Redford’s video from the NRDC: https://twitter.com/NRDC/status/940234392617697280

Thank you again for all your support. Let’s do this!

BREAKING NEWS: Water Protectors Lock Down at Tacoma LNG Site
Puyallup Water Warriors & Redefine Tacoma

Dec 11, 2017 — Friends,

Early this morning, two water protectors locked themselves to a crane 60 feet high at the LNG build site in the Port of Tacoma. They are participating in direct action to call attention to a dangerous facility that is being built without permits, and against the wishes of the Tacoma community.

You can watch a live feed of the action and leave messages of support here: http://bit.ly/2jOirsj

Right now it’s very foggy out, but the water protectors are holding strong, and we are outside with them. For realtime updates follow Native Daily Network who has covered the story from the beginning.

Petition: Free Billy the Elephant from His Lonely, Cramped Life at the L.A. Zoo, California

Billy the elephant has lived at the Los Angeles Zoo for nearly 30 years. For most of this time he has endured living all by himself in an extremely tiny enclosure. As a result he has displayed significant signs of stress. After public protests and a lawsuit filed on Billy’s behalf a few years ago, the Los Angeles Zoo promised to close down the old elephant exhibit and built a bigger, better enclosure for Billy. After visiting the new exhibit, however, I was shocked to find that poor Billy is still being kept in a tiny area separate from the other elephants and he still is displaying the same repetitive stress, such as swaying and rocking side to side and head bobbing due to frustration, boredom, and possibly depression. His predecessors at the Los Angeles Zoo, who died prematurely due to the conditions elephants often acquire while living in  enclosed and cramp quarters.
