Give Peace A Chance, Senator Roberts-Support the Deal!

(Street parking available on First St. or Market)
     Join us Friday at noon to show Senator Roberts we want him to support President Obama's deal with Iran.

Latin America Action Group presents
"Resistencia: The Film"
July 30. 7pm. 
At the Peace Center.

     It is June 28th, 2009. The people of Honduras are preparing to vote in their country's first-ever referendum. However, instead of waking up to ballot boxes they rise to find their streets full of soldiers. The first coup d'état in Central America in three decades.
     An unprecedented nationwide resistance movement is born, known simply as La Resistencia. Without question, the most daring arm of the movement is that of the farmers of the Aguan Valley. With the president that promised to help them get their land back overthrown, they decide to take control of their own destiny. In a matter of minutes they seize control over 10,000 acres of palm oil plantations belonging to the country's most powerful landowner. Located on some of the most fertile land in all of Central America, the farmers announce that they have no plans of ever giving the plantations back.

Rally to Stop Westar's Attack on Solar and Efficiency: Wichita Stands
Thursday, July 23, Rally - 4:30 pm; Public hearing 6 pm
Metroplex, Wichita State University, N. Oliver & E. 29th Street N.
Kansas stands for solar choice and fair electric rates. Westar is trying to raise your rates and eliminate your options to control your bill through efficiency or solar energy. You can say no!
 
Westar is proposing discriminatory fees on solar customers, and they are blocking solar advocates and businesses from raising their concerns. If Westar’s new rates are approved, Kansans will not be able to choose solar energy to lower their energy bills. Westar’s proposal will kill the solar industry in Kansas.  http://www.kcc.state.ks.us/pi/hearing_westar_072315.pdf

Your voice is more important than ever to make sure the KCC hears how Westar’s proposal will hurt Kansans. We need you to rally on July 23st in Wichita or July 21st in Topeka (see invite here - https://www.facebook.com/events/692324084233458/)
