NOVEMBER 20, 2018 - OUR GIFT TO THE EXTRAORDINARY WORK BEING DONE BY

OUR CHILDREN'S TRUST

.My "best" of this year is the Raging Grannies.  This group of indomitable, tuneful, passionate, cheerful and funny women appears almost monthly before the Eugene City Council.  They use their three minutes in the public forum to inspire us to action dressed in homemade costumes to sing familiar tunes with customized lyrics to meet the issue of the day.  They have urged us to ban coal trains, reduce our impact on climate change and divest from US Bank.  They represent the best tome of working hard for a better world while enjoying friendship, song, and silliness.

The rally, organized by Ward 9: Homeless Neighbors Association called for more resources to help the unhoused, rescinding of dog ban downtown and called for the defense of rights for homeless and poor.

Divest the Globe


After the Trump administration’s decision

to exit the Paris climate agreement, many organizations and private citizens decided

to divest their money from banks that

finance pipelines and the fossil fuel industry

as a way to fight back.

Raging Grannies Eugene, Cascadia Action

Network, and 350.Eugene organized a direct

action to pressure REI, whose investments continue to support the fossil fuel industry.

"OUT OF THE ROCKING CHAIR,

INTO THE FIRE"


"In times of increased political, social, and economic divisiveness, unifying distinct campaigns within the movement for environmental and social justice is essential to promote policies and community action that create a more sustainable coexistence with the planet’s ecological systems. “One Cause, One Voice” is an effort to transcend trivial differences in ideology and superficial rivalries within the environmental movement to increase its collective strength and influence by uniting over common interests. It’s a reminder that a stable climate and clean land, air, and water are necessary to promote the health and welfare of all human beings, regardless of our differences in ideology or culture. “One Cause, One Voice” represents the potential to achieve widespread environmental and social justice through cooperation, collaboration, and mutual support."  (PIELC website)

'NOT JUST A CASE,

BUT A MOVEMENT'

reads the headline

by John Schwartz

The New York Times

The young plaintiffs, ages 11 - 22, claim that the government's actions, and inaction, in the face of global warming violate their fundamental constitutional right to freedom from deprivation of life, liberty, and property.

The lawsuit seeks a court order that requires the government to develop and implement a national plan that works to drastically reduce carbon emissions.  They are striving with the support of Our Children's Trust to have a nation powered by clean energy by mid-century, and they are working hard to stabilize the climate system for the health and safety of all future generations.  During the trial the youth will prove that the U.S. Government continues to violate their rights.
