Occupy, Climate Justice and Coal Export Terminals in the NW
RSVP on facebook!
Sunday, February 19, 2012
2:00pm until 4:00pm
Basement Room, St Francis of Assisi
1131 Southeast Oak Street, Portland, OR
The Occupy Movement has not often engaged environmental destruction, climate change, or other related issues. How can we infuse the economically-dominated messaging of Occupy with an environmental perspective? This conversation will be grounded in a discussion of climate justice, the work of Portland Rising Tide and coal in the Pacific Northwest as an example of the destructive practices occurring in our region.
Join us to find out how the world’s dirtiest fuel is traveling through our backyard and strategize how we can stop coal in its tracks and keep it in the ground!
