Video: Tour of global events includes Eugene’s!
Our youth-centered Global Climate March & Collaborative Art Project was featured in this Avaaz video montage of worldwide protests shown to world leaders as they entered UN negotiating chambers! Don’t blink, but early in the video, when it says “United States,” three of the four video clips are from our Eugene march and interactive art protest. 500 people came out on a chilly Thanksgiving weekend to march to demand a global treaty and a transition OFF dirty energy and ON clean. We created a giant human oil drip that, as cameras filmed from the air, transformed into a huge, sunflower, the symbol of solar power. People sang “Here Comes the Sun” and afterwards enjoyed “climate cookies” made by volunteers from our local high school.
