Tell Biden: End Fossil Fuels (w/ Jane Fonda & Steven Donziger)
Start: Wednesday, May 10, 2023• 5:00 PM
President Biden is coming to the Upper East Side. And so are we.
Alongside VIP guest Jane Fonda, we will take to the streets outside Biden's cocktail party with billionaires.
As ice shelves collapse and forests burn, the President will spend his evening wining and dining with billionaires at the Fifth Avenue home of former Blackstone executive Tony James. Blackstone is a $41 billion private equity company whose investments have been tied to deforestation and child labor.
We're showing up too.
We cannot let the President focus on pleasing the billionaire class. And we won't. We will take bold action. We will make our voices heard.
President Biden promised to stop fossil fuel extraction on public lands. Now he is approving permits at a faster pace than Trump. He just approved the Willow Project, which will pump 180,000 barrels of tar sands oil - every day - through some of our world's most pristine lands. Just weeks later, he rubber stamped the Alaska LNG Project, which will have a climate impact ever larger than Willow's. This is intolerable. We must rise up to stop this.
