ETD Event: PIMC Participation in the Global Climate Strike in Portland (Fri. Sept. 20, 2019)

Primary tabs

PIMC will be marching as a sangha in the Global Climate Strike in Portland on Friday, 9/20.

This is a possible turning point in the visibility of the climate movement, as adults are being asked for the first time to stand behind the Fridays for Future student movement which has been protesting the world governments’ lack of response to the climate crisis.

More general information about the strike can be found HERE:

If you would like to take part in the Global Climate Strike as part the PIMC sangha, please email MICHAEL MIDGHALL


The purpose of the Global Climate Strike is:
1.       Support solidarity with Greta Thunberg and the Fridays for Future Movement
2.       Bring a sense of compassion to the cause
3.       Bring back the experience (what it was like) to the PIMC, larger sangha (somehow)

“This is the pivotal psychological moment in the history of the human race.”
                                                                                                - Joanna Macy

The Plan For The March:

*  At 10:15am on 9/20, our sangha will meet at Elk Statue in Chapman Square, 210 SW Main St, Portland, OR 97204 (in downtown Portland)

*  Please wear red (the color of Keep It In The Ground movement)

*  The Climate Strike begins at 10:30 @ Portland City Hall; after speeches, we will join the march across the Hawthorne Bridge for festivities near

*  Transportation: It's going to be crowded, so do everything you can to park your car on the periphery or on the east side and use bike, public transit, carpool (possibly from PIMC)
