Thursday, Feb. 28, 7-9pm: Scaling Up Resistance: Stories from the German Climate Movement
Join German activists from Ende Gelände (“Here and No Further”) on their US tour as they share stories and tactics with local groups about successful mass mobilizations for climate justice, including their campaign to stop coal mines and protect and Hambach Forest.
Focusing on tangible examples, the tour aims to advance ideas for mass mobilizations and build bridges between international approaches for climate justice. Brought to you by Portland Rising Tide and 350PDX.
About Ende Gelände: Over the last ten years, a strong and diverse radical climate justice movement has been growing in Germany, founded on principles of frontline struggles, mass mobilization, direct action, and cooperation across organizational and tactical differences.
The last few years saw the emergence of “Ende Gelände” mass mobilizations for civil disobedience; 6,000 people collectively blocked coal infrastructure last fall. Wearing their emblematic white overalls, demonstrators invaded mining pits, danced in front of the diggers, slept on the railways, and provoked pictures that have raised attention globally by exposing the dirty truth behind the official tale of the German energy transition “Energiewende” and making the connection between climate chaos and capitalism.
Cost: $5-20 sliding scale, no one turned away for lack of funds.
Location: Central Lutheran Church, 1820 NE 21st Ave, 97217

On the heels of the City Club of Portland’s report on the Portland’s Commission Form of Government and on our at-large election system, it is the PERFECT time to start the conversation about whether Portland should form city council districts and if so, (most importantly) HOW should we go about it.
