A few days in the life of a Eugene activist...
Carol Scherer, one of our activist members, gives some insight into the potential scope of involvement around Eugene. She sent this list of activities over the next couple of weeks:
What a whirl-wind of actions for justice! Besides the Yes on 101 rally Sunday [Dec 3rd], 350 Eugene is having a rally at REI as part of a wider effort to get the corporation to stop working with financial institutions that have clients working with the fossil fuel industry. There is an on-line petition if you go to the 350 Eugene page. Also Sunday, an excellent presentation by a noted forester about proper forest management, sponsored by the Many Rivers Sierra Club.
Tuesday is the Noon Tuesday rally hosted by Indivisible and Take Action Eugene. Got an email from an ACLU People Power leader just moments ago about a Tuesday action ALCU is proposing regarding the Supreme Court "cake case". Perhaps Noon Tuesday will focus on this issue. Each week it varies.
Thursday, December 7, Our Revolution Lane County has organized a demonstration outside the Coburg Verizon store in support of net neutrality. This is also on the facebook pages. That evening is another excellent film at the Bijou on 13th, hosted by Encircle Films. Always sold out. So get tickets ahead. Highly recommended.
Planning to attend Saturday, December 9, at a Health Care for Oregon seminar regarding Yes on 101 and how to effectively communicate about the issue. Let me know if you would like particulars. It may be on their websites.
Monday, December 11 is another Eugene City Council meeting. 350 Eugene will be continuing to emphasize the importance of an ordinance to stand with the Thin Green Line being formed along the west coast to prohibit fossil fuel transportation to China.
Thursday, December 14, is Friends of Sanctuary monthly meeting. I and another will be presenting information about the Gorge ICE Resistance and how we might be helpful.
Will be tabling for 350 Eugene at the Holiday Market at the fairgrounds December 17, providing information about why it is important to stop the Jordan Cove LNG pipeline.
