Sierra Club Rally at Occupy Portland
Date: Tuesday, November 1st
Time: 11:30am (Rally at noon)
Location: Chapman Square @ 3rd and Main, Downtown Portland
Sponsor: Sierra Club
Join the Sierra Club at Occupy Portland on Tuesday to support the Occupy Wall Street protests and highlight the need to end our reliance on coal, oil and gas corporations. Sierra Club has issued support of Occupy Wall Street, saying “corporations that pollute our air, land and water, that put greed ahead of community good, public health and the nation’s economic well-being must be held fully accountable”. In our work around the country we have seen first-hand how international coal and oil companies have wrecked communities, polluted our environment and dominated the political process.
On Tuesday, November 1st, Sierra Club will stand in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street protesters in saying “enough”. There will be a press conference and rally with Occupy Portland. Come grab a sign and a mask to show the press and passerby that corporate polluters are profiting off of risking our health! Afterwards, Occupy Portland will be hosting a march to Bank of America in protest of their support and funding of coal companies. Come join us, be loud and take a stand!
