Giant coal companies are pushing their plans to extract massive quantities of coal from Montana and Wyoming and ship it on exposed rail cars to West Coast ports, spewing dangerous coal dust all along the way. They want Washington’s and Oregon’s ports to export it to China and other countries that will burn it, seriously pollute the world’s air, and further damage our climate.
Grassroots people in Puget Sound and along the Pacific coast are organizing vigorous campaigns to stop this. The Western Washington Fellowship of Reconciliation’s 2012 Fall Retreat focuses on the crisis and how we can stop it. Please join SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at a pleasant Retreat in Lacey for an informative, inspiring, and activating day!
Three brief, informative keynotes will be followed by some informative workshops.
An activist round table will feature examples of what people have already been doing.
Concluding with action-oriented workshops to help move toward constructive solutions, strategies to act on the issues will be discussed.
WWFOR’s annual Fall Retreat is always a warm, friendly and well-designed event focusing effectively on particular issues. This year it’s on Saturday November 10. Please bring a brown bag lunch. A $15 donation to cover costs is requested, but people may give more or less as their situation allows.
