Corporate polluters and government colluders co-opted Earth Day as a feel-good holiday that puts the responsibility for “saving the planet” on individuals.

- to target the corporations profiting from the environmental devastation which threatens to end life as we know it
- to build communities that respect the earth and all living beings
