This from the +Brigades:

If you're in New York City, join +Brigades and the Yes Lab today at 5:30 for: 

The Yes Fest: A Celebration of Successful Activism and Pranks

Kimmel Center, Eisner and Lubin 4th Floor Auditorium
60 Washington Square South

5:30 – 7:30 PM

 
The occasion is Occupy Earth Day! 
 
Coming on the heels of yesterdays "melt-in" at Grand Central Station, and this afternoon's Jazz Funeral for the Earth as We Know It, we will meet to discuss the history and future of creative direct action in environmental movements, with an eye to May Day and beyond.
 
Special guests include veteran labor historian and global justice organizer Jeremy Brecher, who has recently written about the relation between Occupy, May Day, and the climate crisis: http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/03/26-8
 
We will also do some + Brigades training, and maybe conclude by taking things over to a nearby site of ecological injustice...
