Update, 9:30pm EST:Fossil fuel projects were blockaded simultaneously on three continents on Saturday—the \u0022crest\u0022 of a wave of global actions responding to the growing threat of climate change.\u0026nbsp;Through rallies, civil disobedience, and kayaktivism, people around the world stood up to oil and gas interests to say: enough. Additional actions are planned for Sunday.\u0026nbsp;~40 Coloradans standing strong at a fracking mega-site just down the street from an elementary school. #BreakFreeCO pic.twitter.com/ZAR7uw6mD6— 350 dot org (@350) May 14, 2016Beautiful photos from today\u0026#039;s #BreakFreeCAN action at the #KinderMorgan terminal \u0026gt;\u0026gt; https://t.co/OAuZDwZGsm pic.twitter.com/YJqjFsjnhw— Greenpeace Canada (@GreenpeaceCA) May 14, 2016In Pecém, Brazil people are blockading the road to the largest thermal power plant in the country #breakfree2016 pic.twitter.com/Y13YqA3PCC\u0026mdash; 350 dot org (@350) May 14, 2016\r\nSo many great signs at LA March. \u0026#039;Where\u0026#039;s my weather\u0026#039; #breakfree2016 pic.twitter.com/7QLQ0k2Wuu— Bill McKibben (@billmckibben) May 14, 2016Reinforcements on their way to #endegelaende. 2nd day shutting down big coal! #breakfree2016 #ActOnClimate #go100re pic.twitter.com/IAkaoChiYj— Mike Hudema (@MikeHudema) May 14, 2016Breaking reports that Vattenfall power station running low at 20% capacity \u0026amp; could be shut down by midnight! Unprecedented! #endegelaende— 350.org Europe (@350Europe) May 14, 2016In New York, two activists reportedly \u0022caught county officials off guard\u0022 when they suspended themselves from train\u0026nbsp;tracks on a railroad bridge that crosses the Watervliet Reservoir. They successfully blockaded a train\u0026nbsp;from North Dakota carrying fracked crude oil, also known as a “bomb train” because of its explosive nature.\u0026nbsp;\u0022Most of my family lives within a few miles of where the bomb trains travel,\u0022 said one of the climbers, Maeve McBride, who grew up in Troy. \u0022This is personal and global. Their lives are at risk and millions of lives are at risk with rising seas, forest fires, violent storms, and all the havoc that global warming brings. Today I felt called to directly obstruct the fossil fuel industry, joining thousands of others around the world.\u0022\u0026nbsp;350.org, which is backing the Break Free movement, wrote\u0026nbsp;at\u0026nbsp;Medium:In the same minute that people in Umuarama, Brazil were cheering their city council’s newly announced ban on fracking, activists in Germany were shutting down a massive power plant. As folks in the Pacific Northwest of the United States woke up to their second day occupying the tracks of oil by rail ‘bomb trains,’ hundreds of people in Albany marched onto bomb train tracks that run just feet from a public housing complex. Ecuadorian youth fighting to defend the Yasuni national forest from oil exploration confronted a refinery, just hours after Nigerians marched along the coast Exxon wants to drill to say that it’s time to put food and people ahead of fossil fuels and profits.This kind of thing has never been tried before — in part because the world has never been this hot before, but also because there has never been an opportunity like this to initiate a rapid transition away from fossil fuels. With renewable energy on the rise, climate disasters escalating and people everywhere waking up to the threat of climate change — this is our moment to act.Earlier...From Albany, New York, to Anacortes, Washington, climate justice advocates across the U.S. exuberantly added their voices on Saturday to the global call to Break Free from fossil fuels.\u0026nbsp;#breakfree2016 TweetsOver 150 activists spent the night in a colorful tent village on the railroad tracks leading to the March Point refineries near Anacortes—blocking all oil train traffic and vowing to stay as long as possible, even if that means getting arrested.\u0022We\u0026#039;re putting our bodies in the gears of the fossil fuel economy to demand a just transition to the post-fossil fuel economy,\u0022 said Annette Klapstein, 63, of the Raging Grannies. \u0022World leaders agreed to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees--we demand that they do so.\u0022Indeed, added organizer\u0026nbsp;Ahmed Gaya,\u0026nbsp;\u0022Break Free is about pressuring the system so we get the change we need, but it\u0026#039;s also about imagining an alternative. By setting up a village here, we\u0026#039;re embodying what we need to do as a community: to turn the systems that have devastated people and nature into places that can support us.\u0022“We need to make a stand,\u0022 Gaya said. \u0022From the Philippines to Syria to Alberta, climate instability caused by business as usual is killing people. Doing something like this, and possibly being arrested, is a lot less crazy than continuing on like nothing is wrong.\u0022In addition to the 500 people who have pledged to risk arrest over the three-day Northwest mobilization, thousands more were expected to converge by land and by sea on Saturday for an\u0026nbsp;Indigenous Day of Action\u0026nbsp;rally at the tip of March Point. Organizers say the Shell and Tesoro refineries located there are the \u0022largest unaddressed source of carbon pollution in the Northwest,\u0022 and they are calling for a just transition to clean energy—now.Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, more than 1,000 people from across the Northeast are registered to physically blockade oil trains in Albany on Saturday—trains whose presence, they say, is an act of environmental racism and class prejudice.\u0022The New York State Capital has been a key center for fossil fuel distribution and bad decisions for our economy and our futures, against the wishes of the people of the City of Albany,\u0022 organizers said in a call-to-action.\u0022Representing a coalition from across the northeast, we will gather with frontline communities, including Ezra Prentice Homes, and others living in the oil train blast zone,\u0022 it read, adding that the act of mass civil disobedience against oil trains would also stand against fracked gas pipelines and other fossil fuel projects.Saturday\u0026#039;s rally and civil disobedience in New York comes on the heels of a kayak flotilla and banner drop in the Hudson River on Friday evening. Among those participating on Friday was 350.org executive director May Boeve, who noted that \u0022kayaktivism has worked wonders to demonstrate people power against powerful interests.\u0022MARCH IS STARTING!
