Following the Paris Climate Talks, many world leaders and big green groups were quick to claim victory. But what really happened in Paris? Where is the final agreement taking us, what are the implications for climate justice and where does our movement need to go? We’ll hear from Jill Stein, Maralena Murphy, Ptery Leight and Virginia Wiseman, all of whom were in Paris, about the talks and the role the grassroots in Portland can play to bring about climate justice. The panel will be followed by a discussion/Q&A. Co-hosted by Portland Central American Solidarity Committee (PCASC), Right 2 Survive and 350PDX. This event is free and open to the public. More info on the Panelists: Jill Stein is an organizer, physician, and environmental-health activist.

She was a principal organizer for the Global Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit. Previously she served on the Massachusetts and national boards of directors for Physicians for Social Responsibility, where she worked on environmental health and nuclear disarmament.

Veterans For Peace Portland Chapter 72 is holding a benefit Summertime Garden Party to raise funds for the chapter to continue its battle waging peace, supporting veterans of all wars.

We need community support to continue our education and awareness work on Agent Orange, Burn Pit exposure, Counter Recruitment, Homeless Veterans, Counter Recruitment, and Speaking Truth to Power by putting Veteran Voices in the Public arena through organized events and speaking engagements. We also need to have some fun and build our community relationships and what better way than to break bread, sip suds and listen to a seasoned activist and some of the best musicians in the world. While this is a fundraiser you will also have an opportunity to bid on donated goods in a silent auction. We guarantee you will have a great time and leave with some truth you can speak to the powers that be and a song in your heart. Renowned folksinger-activist David Rovics will entertain along with a special musical guest from England. Lloyd Marbet, a Vietnam veteran and expert on nuclear issues, will talk about what it means to be “Upside Falling Down.”
