Rising Tide Roadshow:
confronting the root causes of climate change!
Tuesday, April 17 @ 7:30 PM
Boxcar Books (3rd and Washington)
From their tour summary (see www.risingtidenorthamerica.org for more information):
This spring, Rising Tide will bring the global struggle for climate justice to the belly of the beast, connecting the dots between the overarching crisis of climate change and the grassroots struggles of communities resisting the fossil fuel industryâ€™s assault on their land and culture. Through partnering with local environmental and climate justice organizations in each region, we seek to amplify the voices of those most affected by climate change and the fossil fuel industry, boosting support for these revolutions on the local level and creating a culture of solidarity across lines of race, class and gender.
Two mutually-beneficial strategies that we will explore on the roadshow are: sparking and supporting local struggles against fossil fuel infrastructure, and building real, sustainable alternatives that foster community and decrease our dependence on the industries and institutions destroying the planet.Â The Spring Roadshow will take a popular education approach to organizing and agitating for climate justice, employing music, participatory games and multi-media to foment life-affirming resistance.
