When:8/16 at 1pm, Where: Seattle City Hall
Why: Every Friday from 1-2 a group, called Fridays for Future, of mostly youth Climate Strike in front of Seattle City Hall. They are asking extra people go out on 8/16 to show support for Zoe. Every week they use sidewalk chalk to show their message for climate action. This past week an adult handed Zoe a bottle of spray on chalk that turned out to be chalk paint. As soon as she realized they began making plans to clean it up, but the police intervened and took a 13 year old away in handcuffs.
Holy SHIT, @seattlePD. Making a 13-year old w/ sidewalk chalk cry, & cuffing her?
“You realize she’s 13 years old?”“That’s great, we’ll figure it out at the precinct. We’re not going to sit here while we’re surrounded by a bunch of people who want to make their opinions known.” pic.twitter.com/iCgPkktRF1

To help prepare for this major mobilization and to share skills, provide key tools and resources and the support of peer learning, we’ve put together a great training series of five webinars. All of the webinars will be on Wednesdays at 5 pm PT/ 8 pm ET. In order to build in enough time for discussion, we’re asking everyone to set aside 1.5 hours for each of the webinars, though some may be shorter.
- August 14th: Centering Equity & Justice (including how to best support youth leadership) in Climate Strike Organizing
- August 21st: Communications & Digital Tools for Climate Strike Organizing
- August 28th: Utilizing the Strikes to Build Our Movement: Strategies for Leadership Development & Plugging People In Post-Sept 20th
- September 4th: Know Your Rights to Stand Up for Climate Justice! (with the Civil Liberties Defense Center)
- September 11th: Opportunities & Challenges: Bring your ideas and questions around Sept 20th-27th Organizing
This inspiring film reveals the obvious way to stop decades of ever increasing
ecological devastation and financial misappropriation.
About this Event
As the salmon numbers plummet and orcas starve, weak political will remains the status quo. Four obsolete dams on the lower Snake River kill hundreds of salmon per every megawatt of hydropower produced. These fish killing dams never were an environmentally friendly decision, and with renewable resources on the rise are no longer economically sound. Breaching these dams will not only save salmon and orca, but millions of taxpayer and ratepayer dollars.
You will also hear the story of a Palouse tribal elder from eastern Washington who courageously refuses to let the injustice of constructing the dams go untold. Carrie Chapman Nightwalker Schuster’s family home was drowned by the construction of Ice Harbor Dam, completed in 1961. Since her childhood she has fought valiantly to maintain and restore Palouse culture, language, and land, some of which lies under the reservoir behind Ice Harbor Dam. Carrie gives the vision of steadfast grit to all who take up the mission to “Free the Snake.”
