Anti-Greenwashing Direct Action in Portland, Call to Climate Justice Action

On the morning of October 5, 2010 anonymous environmental activists representing the interests of the earth and peoples oppressed by green washed business took action against Go Green, a $175 dollar per person business conference. Environmental activists locked the doors to the Gerding Theatre with a chain and a banner reading “ Green is the color of $$, No Excuses! No Compromise!” and tar was spread across the door handles and locks. This action is meant to represent both environmental impacts and social impacts of false solutions to climate change. This action is claimed in the name of all oppressed people and all ecosystems effected by the business elite’s false solutions to climate change.

Climate Justice Action is proposing a week of direct action for climate justice from October 12 – 16, 2010. They released a statement saying, “we are not picking targets. But it is not a day for marches or petitions: it is time for us to reclaim our power, and take control of our lives and futures.”
