Climate Forum: Confronting Oil, Coal and Gas,Direct Action Movements at
the Point of Extraction
Doors Open at 6:45pm, Program Begins at 7pm
The wealthy few are destroying our climate, our eco-systems and our communities. They destroy Appalachia’s mountains for profit they make from coal. They've poisoned the Gulf of Mexico and Indigenous and frontline communites from Alberta to the Gulf Coast for profit they make from oil.
They are destroying communities from New York to American West for profit they’ll make from natural gas.
In California and the Bay Area, the fight against extraction is becoming a reality as industry is paving the way for more and more fracking while "oil by rail" proposals are becoming more prevalent.
Now frontline communities and grassroots direct action allies from across the continent have risen up against the fossil fuel industry. In the past three years, from Washington D.C. to the streets of St. Louis and Richmond,CA to the highways and byways of rural Idaho and Montana, the fight against fossil fuels has intensified with massive amounts of direct action and grassroots organizing.
Event to include:
-Panel on the North American anti-extraction movements; speakers TBA
-Amazing videos from recent direct actions
Please join Rising Tide North America as we host a climate forum on the growing movement against fossil fuel extraction in North America.
