Gates Divestment Campaign Turns up the Heat….

…so Bill & Melinda Gates might help us turn DOWN the heat, by divesting their significant Foundation funds from the companies that have misled us for decades.

On Saturday, the kayaktivists returned–this time on Lake Washington, in front of the Gates mansion.

And today, we brought out our secret weapon: the Plant for the Planet kids. We found out that it happens to be Bill Gates’s 60th birthday, so we sang Happy Birthday, signed a big card, and gave him a Plant for the Planet t-shirt (though Aji left strict instructions that he wasn’t to wear it until they had instructed the Foundation to divest). The terrific youth band The Onlies performed, and former Mayor McGinn introduced the Plant for the Planet speakers. Don’t forget to ask all the groups and clergy members you know to sign on to the letter!
