So The Nation reports that Al Gore is considering our offer to engage in civil disobedience, specifically on our November 16-17 National Day of Action Against Coal Finance:
Gore’s office confirmed that the former Vice President had received RAN’s invitation and was considering it, though no decision has been made.
“He has not accepted any of their offers to date,” Kalee Kreider, a spokeswoman for Gore, said of the RAN offer. Kreider did not deny that this phrasing leaves open the possibility of Gore saying yes down the road.
I, for one, am really hoping he decides to participate, if not on November 16, then someday soon. For one thing, I’d like to meet the guy.
You can still sign RAN’s friendly petition asking Al to come be arrested with us—don’t worry, we aren’t flooding his assistant with e-mail or anything. More than 5,000 people have signed already. Sign on and show Al how excited we are that he’s considering our invitation.
