2/29: F29 Shut Down the Corporations day of action! Rising Tide Climate Justice Bloc
What: March to challenge ALEC and corporate power, Climate Justice Bloc
When: Feb. 29th, 11am to 5pm
Where: Meet under the Burnside bridge on the West side at 11am, look for the huge wave!
Occupy Portland calls for a national day of non-violent civil disobedience targeting corporations who are members of ALEC, one of the most successful mechanisms that the 1% uses to control legislation. We are asking people around the country to choose members of ALEC in their home towns and SHUT DOWN BUSINESS AS USUAL.
Portland Rising Tide will be putting together a Climate Justice Bloc to call attention to ALEC’s role in propelling us further into climate chaos while stalling efforts to help slow climate change. ALEC is a friend to energy companies, corporate polluters, factory farms and their political allies. Among many other climate crimes, ALEC has helped to: Forbid local governments from limiting pesticide use, streamlined siting for nuclear and other power plants and prohibited local efforts to oppose genetically modified (GMO) crops. Join us for this huge national day of action!
