Event description from OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon:
On April 29th, we mark 100 days of a US administration which represents the economy of the past: greedy, militaristic, misogynistic, and white supremacist. The Portland People’s Climate Movement is grounded in the following principles, based upon those of the National People’s Climate Movement and rooted in the principles of a Just Transition.
People of color, low income communities, and rural and tribal people are at the front line of environmental and climate injustice- our communities must lead the efforts to address climate change. Climate change is only a symptom of much deeper crises that are happening worldwide- the ecological crisis, economic crisis, and the crisis of empire. These crises come from the current dominant economy, created by a system that only works for a few which relies on exploitation and extraction of resources. We must create a system that works for everyone, based on cooperation, close communities, and regenerative processes.
