The BEC / Chico 350 "Climate Solutions" Rally was well attended especially for a cold, nearly winter, day. The few drops of rain did not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd. It was fun to see Steve and Susan interviewing folks, perhaps for a future Ecotopia Radio show (Tuesdays at 6 pm on KZFR). Our Chico Tree Advocate / Peace Panel Project booth got good action lots of interest, conversations and Nonviolent Communication, Ruses for War, Better World Shopping and Censored 2016 book sales (27% off retail). We handed out brochures on those topics and Career Builders, Move to Amend and Manufacturing Consent. And as an added bonus, volunteers showed up to help set up and pack up. Thank you to our volunteers. I couldn't do it without you. Our (hand painted) "Chico 350" banner graced the stage and made a good vocal point. Unfortunately I didn't whip out my camera until the crowd had thinned. Food Not Bombs, Rain, Peter and Page were there with the best veggie stew. Yum yum.
