UNION COUNTY CLIMATE STRIKE!

FRIDAY, September 20, 2019

8:30 am MAX Square, La Grande, Oregon

September 20, people around the world will stop work and leave school to focus attention on the climate crisis

OUR DEMANDS

A SUSTAINABLE WORLD – FOR EVERYONE

“I will not beg the world leaders to take care for our future I will instead let them know that the change is coming whether they like it or not.” 

– Greta Thunberg

https://www.climatestrike.net

The adult generations have promised to stop the climate crisis, but they have skipped their homework year after year. Climate strike is a wake-up call to our own generation.

And it is the start of a network that will solve the greatest challenge in human history.

Together.

We need your hands and hearts and smarts!”

COMING TO LA GRANDE THURSDAY, MAY 30!

CLASSIC DOCUMENTARY FILM “TAPPED”

  • Presents overwhelming amount of evidence about bottled and municipal water
  • Examines the role of bottled water industry and effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil
  • Highlights the willful absence of major companies such as Coke, Pepsi and Nestle in addressing this environmental problem

“Every day we throw away 50 million single-serve bottles of water as plastic waste! How this crisis developed and continues to worsen is brilliantly explained and the producers should be highly praised for their efforts. Our hope is that the small voice of “Tapped” will be heard over the huge booming commercial machine in the popular media.”

It concludes by presenting a pathway to addressing the campaign financing methods that threaten true representation and democracy in America.
