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. 





The Grannies were part of the 350EUG parade entry...


AND 350 EUGENE WON BEST OF SHOW!!!!


Congratulations !

Granny Surprise Party

.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.

 "We Have the Sunshine"
Tune:  You are My Sunshine"
Lyrics Judith Edelstein

 
We have the sunshine,
We have the oceans,
We have the win-nd, we have the rain.
Why don't we use them
To meet our life needs
In-n ways that we can sustain?
 
(SPOKEN)  WE CAN!

 

Women Power!
(Tune: “Oh, Susannah!”)
Lyrics by the Triangle Raging Grannies

 1. Oh, in Oregon we're marching Raging Grannies proud and strong,
With our fancy granny hats we march and sing our raging song.
CHORUS 1:
            Women power! We will not be ignored.
            We stand in solidarity
            With all women; hear us roar!

2. Oh, we'll fight for women's rights to plan our families as we choose, 
And we're rising up to say that we'll no longer be abused.
3. Oh, we support the immigrants who come from many lands;
​They deserve a break and decent pay and women’s helping hands.
4. Oh, our Muslim sisters we’ll protect from bigots day and night.
All must be free to walk the streets without a fear or fright. 
5. Oh, the right to marry who we love must be a right for all,
And the right to pee where we see fit in a private bathroom stall.
6. We want equal pay for equal work, and family leave for all,
And we’ll stand in solidarity; as women we stand tall.
7. And no matter if our skin is black, or tan, or red, or brown,
We will not sit by while our children die. We will beat the racists down.
8. Women fought and died for voting rights; now we’re rising up to say,
That you’d better watch out 'cause we’ve got clout; so don’t get in our way!
CHORUS 2
Women power! We will not be ignored!
And we'll make a fuss if you mess with us!
We are women; hear us roar!

Grannies concluded the service by singing:

...and Grannies from Eugene, Corvallis and Portland were there...

(SPOKEN)  START NOW!!!.

"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)

Use solar panels,

Develop wind farms,

Find ways to harness water power.

We'll be creative

To build a green world.

The time is now, this is the hour.


(SPOKEN) BECAUSE


We have the sunshine,

We have the oceans,

We have the win-nd, we have the rain,

Why don't we use them

To meet our life needs in-n ways that

we can sustain?
