Building Resilience, Building Community Power

Saturday, December 3, 2011
10am – 4pm
Tassafaronga Recreation Center

975 – 85th Avenue

Even as the 1% profiting from pollution and environmental racism here in Oakland and around the world, they continue to propose false solutions to climate change designed to make more profits instead of improve the health of people and the planet.

MG stands in Solidarity with Grassroots Global Justice Alliance & LA Via Campesina North America, as we call on our allies to mobilize on Saturday, December 3rd for

“1000 DURBANS FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE! STOP THE 1% FROM PROFITING FROM POLLUTION, LIFT UP COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS THAT COOL THE PLANET!”

On this day we will join social movements from across the globe in creating 1000’s OF DURBANS in conjunction with the social movement activities around the UN climate talks in Durban, South Africa. Join us at the Occupy Oakland General Assembly on Friday, December 2 at 6pm as we introduce a statement of solidarity with social movements in Durban.

Movement Generation will also join Communities for a Better Environment and other allies at the Tassafaronga Recreation Center in East Oakland to foster community- based solutions that feed the hearts and minds of the people! CBE is working to reclaim city and public land through expanding the Tassafaronga Farm in East Oakland from 10am to 4pm. Email us for more details at michelle@movementgeneration.org.
