to jen, jestli to nedostavate. Asi by to nemelo zustat v Cesku vicemene 
nepovsimnuto; signal, ze si nejaka cast nasich obyvatel uvedomuje, ze na 
jejich hlavy pripadaji rekordni aktualni i kumulativni, by byl dobry...

Subject: 5 minutes next Monday could save the world

Dear friends,

This Monday, join the great global wake-up call -- at over 1000 events
in 88 countries, let˙˙s come together for a few minutes in public places
worldwide to press leaders to get climate negotiations back on track!
Look at our global map and listings now to find a wake-up event near
you, then sign up to participate in this extraordinary day of action:

Take Action Now

Avaaz members have registered a staggering 1000 events in 88 countries
for next Monday's great global climate wake up call!

A thousand events is impressive, but if hundreds of thousands of us come
to them on Sept. 21st -- we'll send an historic flood of grass roots
messages to world leaders meeting the next day in New York, just in time
to revive dangerously flagging climate talks. Click below to RSVP.

Some of the events are major, like screenings of the new climate film
The Age of Stupid -- but most are very short "flash" events -- taking
just 5 minutes during our lunch hour or on the way home from work.
They're fun, politically powerful, and we can meet other great Avaaz
people of all ages and walks of life. No preparation needed -- just come
along and bring friends! The planet needs us, let's get together and
save it -- click below to find an event nearby:


Leaders and the media are already paying attention to what we're doing
on September 21st. And the press is reporting that urgent negotiations
on a global deal to stop a climate catastrophe are in shambles - our
leaders just aren't making the hard choices needed -- they're feeling
more pressure from oil and coal companies than they are from ordinary
people concerned about reversing the climate crisis and unleashing a new
green economy. Sept. 21st is the moment to change all that.

The events will be easy and fun. Just look for others holding up their
cell phones with alarms ringing at the right time, converge, take a
picture, and make a wake up call to our leaders. The pictures will be
compiled and shown on television and to world leaders to show the
strength of our demand, and the phone calls will flood leaders' offices

Not all events are the same -- many Wake-Up Call events are thrilling in
their variety -- monks will chant prayers, churches will ring bells,
some will show the new cool climate film "Age of Stupid". Click below to
find an event nearby, RSVP, and tell friends about it:


Our call is for leaders to sign an ambitious, fair and binding global
treaty that will stop a climate catastrophe. Next week is the last time
our leaders are scheduled to meet this year on climate! With their
negotiations way off track, it really does depend on us. Let's amaze

See you on the 21st,

Paul, Iain, Graziela, Ricken, Alice J, Ben, Milena, Brett, Taren,
Pascal, Paula, Benji, Alice W, Luis, Raluca, Milena, Veronique, Chris,
Margaret, Julius, and the rest of the Avaaz team

PS: Images and videos from the Global Wake-Up Call events will be
combined, in a matter of hours, into a short movie to be shown in 700
satellite-linked cinemas at the Age of Stupid's global premiere! The
screenings are one night only, September 21 in the US and Sept 22 in 40+
other countries. You can find the screenings right on the Wake-Up Call
event map at http://www.avaaz.org/en/tcktcktck_map. For more information
about the Age of Stupid movie (and to buy tickets), see:

PPS The Global Wake-Up Call is an open, creative day of action which
depends on the energy and ingenuity of all of us -- so it˙˙s also each
one of ours to take and run with. If you think you can involve a leader,
well-known public personality or organisation; if you have a theatre,
dance or art group which could stage its own eye-catching moment in a
public place; if you can ask your church or another institution to ring
its bells or want to invite colleagues to join you for a wake-up
flashmob at or outside your workplace, or make your own unique
contribution to the wake-up call in some other way we haven't even
imagined -- go ahead! Don˙˙t wait for our approval ˙˙ just register your
plan with us by emailing it to open21 at avaaz....
