Biggest Party of The Decade

Submitted by Carol on July 2, 2007 - 6:33pm.

This Saturday, 7/7/07, two billion people around the world will rally for a solution to the climate crisis (Live Earth - Party for the Planet). They'll gather at concerts on seven continents and at over 6,000 parties from Alabama to Zimbabwe. And there's a party right near you in Tallahassee.

You don't want to miss it! Al Gore put the entire night together, and he'll be front and center. You'll be barbequeing and pot-lucking with progressive friends and neighbors, and all eight Democratic presidential candidates will join us to share their visions for a climate-crisis-free, clean-energy world.

It's going to be one amazing night. Can you join the world's biggest party this Saturday in Patchogue?...

You've gotta come--there's never been an event quite like this one.

The night will kick off with a backyard barbeque or potluck. Then, we'll watch the highlights of the first presidential candidate forum dedicated to the climate crisis--with questions posed on video by MoveOn members. (This part of the program is just for MoveOn members and friends at over 1300 parties coast-to-coast.)

Finally, we'll tune into the 7/7/07 Live Earth concerts with millions of other people around the world. The Police are playing at the New York show, Madonna's in London, Macy Gray's in Brazil, Joss Stone's in South Africa--but you get them all at your party!

But Saturday's just the beginning. That night, we'll discuss how we can all work together on next steps for a clean energy future. We're holding this event with our friends at Campaign for America's Future, the League of Conservation Voters, and the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights in order to bring you all the best information and ideas about solutions.

And, we'll start to make change the next day with our online vote on the presidential candidate with the best climate plan. Tens of thousands of MoveOn members will speak at once about what our country needs to deal with the climate crisis!

Al Gore sounded a great rally cry with his OpEd in yesterday's New York Times:

WE--the human species--have arrived at a moment of decision. It is unprecedented and even laughable for us to imagine that we could actually make a conscious choice as a species, but that is nevertheless the challenge that is before us.1

Don't miss this opportunity. Join a Party for the Planet and MoveOn Virtual Town Hall Meeting on Climate Saturday evening, July 7th at 7 p.m. Click here to sign up:

7/7/07 is about coming together, working on solutions to one of the biggest issues of our time, and being a part of history. We hope you'll join us.

Thank you for all you do.
