What you need to know, currently.
If you’re on the Gulf Coast and don’t have plans this weekend, head over to Baton Rouge for the Gulf Gathering for Climate Justice and Joy. Organizers are planning a two day gathering focused on rejecting the false narratives of extractive industries and imagining a sustainable future for the Third Coast.
“For decades, wealthy corporations have extracted our resources, carved up our swamps and forests, and used our region as the nation’s dumping ground. They have done this while offering false promises of wealth and opportunity. Instead, they have funneled the profits into CEO bonuses and corporate tax havens, leaving us with a rapidly shrinking number of jobs in the oil and gas industry, toxic water and air, and no way to pay to clean up their mess,” organizers write.
“This is a pivotal moment to remind our elected leaders that another future is possible…We can have a future where renewable energy, sustainable agriculture and our cultural economies provide good, healthy jobs that sustain our way of life.”
