There’s a global work party going on this Sunday for environmental activists:

Patricia Schuba, one of the activists working for LEO (Labadie Environmental Organization) to prevent Ameren from building a new coal ash landfill on the Missouri River, says that there are over 7,000 events scheduled worldwide. It is the largest day of environmental action ever planned. In fact, as of Thursday only 3-4 nations were not represented. The U.S. has around 1,200 events planned. The Labadie group has said that their event is the smallest with potentially one of the biggest impacts, given the effect that a landfill would have on water resources for millions.

And what does the Labadie event involve? Plenty.
