Raging Grannies Eugene
Don’t Poison Our Water! Water Is a Human Right! Stop Environmental Racism in Communities!
Monday, May 16, 2016 - Convention Center Plaza, Portland, Oregon
Grannies from Eugene, Corvallis and Portland joined the United Methodist Women at the United Methodist General Conference for a rally for the right to clean water for all.
Lead in Flint, Michigan, drinking water is just the tip of the iceberg. The contamination of water sources is a crisis for communities of color around the globe. We gathered to call on our local, state and national governments to fulfill the human right to water and guarantee safe, affordable and adequate water and sanitation for all. From indigenous struggles against corporate pollution in Liberia, Honduras and the Philippines to demands in Portland to clean up the Portland Harbor Superfund Site to the ongoing crisis in Flint, bringing focus on corporate and government accountability to the people of color around the globe.

WHAT WILL OUR
IF THEY FOUND OUT WE
AND DID NOTHING
MAKE YOUR VOICE
The only thing blocking the transition out of the carbon age is investment not technology. No further technological advances need occur, although many will. We have the ability to do this right now. It is a question of will and intent.
Grannies all over the world are devoted to making a difference in this world of ours. We work for peace, social and economic justice and protection of this earth we call home. No small matter. Grannies are courageous elders who care passionately about the future of our global children and grandchild and all species living on Mother Earth. We believe that singing helps to keep peoples spirits alive and makes clear to others why they are standing up against what is happening in their world and that they are not alone.
