More Sleep-Outs for Clean Energy Planned in Massachusetts
Protesters in Massachusetts will continue to urge their legislators to commit to powering the state with 100% clean electricity by 2020.
The Leadership Campaign is organizing the efforts, as they did with last fall’s sleep-outs in Boston Common, which lasted three weeks and came to an end as the global summit in Copenhagen began. Although world leaders “failed to agree on a binding, aggressive, and fair global treaty,” and although “our leaders in congress have similarly failed to act,” the campaign vows that “individuals across Massachusetts are standing up and declaring their leadership.”
The scheduled sleep-outs:
. February 20th-21st, Amherst Common Sleep-out
. March 28th-29th, Cambridge Common Sleep-out and March
. April 21st-22nd, Boston Common Earth Day Sleep-out and Lobby Day
