Climate Justice and Tar Sands Blockade Workshop, 4/23/13

Where: Laughing Horse Books – 12 NE 10th Ave, Portland, OR 97232
When: April 23rd, 7-9pm
Cost: Free! Donations happily accepted

This workshop will go explore the concept of climate justice through the work of the Tar Sands Blockade, which was initiated in part by Rising Tide North Texas. Several guest speakers that have participated in the blockade will be present to talk about their involvement. This will include a participant in the recent Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance action camp in Ponca City, Oklahoma. This most recent action camp is an example of how the campaign is growing along the entire length of the pipeline.

We will discuss climate justice, its origins and what it means to do grounded organizing with front line and impacted communities. We will also talk about ways that you can get involved and support the Tar Sands Blockade both from Portland and if you wanna travel to join the resistance.

Post here or please email portland@risingtidenorthamerica.org with any questions.
