A significant accomplishment of the year was training a cadre of people to participate in and lead civil disobedience actions in this region. The actions in March, August and October were a result of that strategy.
The March action was the kickoff of a campaign to end drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. The Louisiana Bucket Brigade has been an important leader in the movement in this region to get off of oil and fossil fuels. Our staff collaborated with other groups from around the region to maximize turnout and organize the events at the Superdome.
