Flash Gathering: Eugene Area Chamber of Climate Crisis
Tongue in Cheek Award Ceremony
Contact: David Zupan
At 12:30 pm on December 5th, local citizens concerned about the global climate crisis will gather at the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce, 1401 Willamette, to give them an award. The Golden Ostrich trophy will be presented to the Eugene Chamber because of their support for the US Chamber of Commerce and its blockade of progress on addressing The Climate Crisis.
The weather on Dec 5th is supposed to be unusually cold, ironically. We will protest what ever the weather. Before and or after the event cold participants may want to gather at a near by coffee shop:
Speakers at the protest itself will include:
- Long- time activist David Oaks
- Artist Debra Nunez
- Media activist David Zupan
- Ron Unger, a full time mental health counselor
- Amanda from MindFreedom Office
