LINKS ARE MOVING

There has been some thought about how best to inform our OCCUPY BELLINGHAM web browsers about who we are, what we stand for and what we are doing.  One of the methods we use is to encourage folks to stay informed on a myriad of issues, not only by attending meetings and participating in actions but by reading.  That’s what the links on the left side of the page are about.  

  • Quick referrals to other web sites that can inform you about other groups,
  • Important information about our OCCUPY BELLINGHAM various campaigns

You can view all these issues that we care about and demand action for on the menu bar under “ABOUT”.   There we list our vision, mission and demands.  

We are in the process of moving this categorized information to the top menu bar under LINKS.  When we have this completed you will see a larger space for the blog portion of the web site and possibly some changes there as well.

Stay tuned!

Website upgraded to WordPress 4.0

This major upgrade to the software we use for our website does not appear, so far, to change anything visible to users in our historical content.

There are lots of improvements under the hood that give content creators enhanced options.  As these options are used, there may be “look and feel” differences that users see in new content.

This vibrant documentary profiles scientist, activist and educator David Suzuki as he prepares for his “legacy lecture” at the University of British Columbia, where he offers profound insights into his visionary commitment to the environment. In addition to musing about his much-lauded career, Suzuki candidly describes his past, including his Japanese Canadian family’s placement in an internment camp in British Columbia during World War II.

OIL TRAIN HEARING – WEDNESDAY

If you thought we only needed to be concerned about the proposed coal terminal at Cherry Point,  think again!  The current move to off load oil from trains (refined and possibly crude) from the Bakken oil fields and Tar Sands at our two refineries has been happening for the past year under our noses.

Learn more about about oil trains and tankers from Forest Ethics (http://forestethics.org/) and Columbia Riverkeeper (http://columbiariverkeeper.org/).
Oil companies ship 40 times more oil in outdated and dangerous train cars compared to just five years ago. This is a national problem. If you are worried about safety in our community, join us on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 6:00 for a rally and then a public hearing. 

State your opinion about this latest effort by the fossil-fuel robber barons to make their profits on the backs of the citizens of our community.  We must insist on an EIS for this.

Go to Re-Sources web site HERE for more information.

HONORING THE VICITMS OF LAC-MEGANTIC

Rise with Lac-Megantic to send the message: Keep Oil Off the Rails and In the Ground!

Thanks to Paul Anderson for this fabulous photos of the rally on Sunday to stand with residents in Lac-Megantic, grassroots activists across North America, and with ForestEthics, 350.org, Oil Change International and the Sierra Club. This memorial will be installed in a public location sometime in the hear future.

At a time when the urgency for climate action is at its greatest in history, we cannot fall into the oil industry’s distracting debates on the ‘best methods’ to transport fossil fuels. As our movement has blocked climate-killing pipelines across North America, big oil has moved at an alarming rate to transport oil by rail. Yet despite dozens of oil train disasters, the oil industry is seeking to dramatically expand oil by rail in the US and in Canada. Lac-Megantic’s struggle is a grim reminder to us all: Big Oil will stop at nothing to extract, transport, and burn every drop of oil in the ground. No matter the risk, no matter the cost to public health, safety, and the climate, the oil industry will jump at every opportunity to profit.

Now we say NO MORE.

No more exploding trains.

No more tar sands.

No more reckless endangerment of our communities and our climate!
