Dakota Access Pipeline Saboteurs Speak
Saturday | October 28, 2017 | 7:00 pm — 8:00 pm
Omni Commons | 4799 Shattuck Avenue, Oakland, CA 94609
An Evening with Dakota Access Pipeline Saboteurs Jessica Reznicek and Ruby Montoya: How and Why Two Women Went from Protesting to Sabotage to Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
This event is for everyone. Whether you agree with Jessica and Ruby’s actions completely or not. Everyone who comes with respect and is genuinely interested in a productive dialogue is welcome.
The Global Climate Crisis is forcing people who never imagined or wanted to do anything like Jessica’s and Ruby’s actions to question and re-evaluate what they’re willing to do to confront it. And ask ourselves whether we are willing to support actions like these after they occur – even though some of us would never want to or be able to engage in actions like these ourselves.
With forests on fire, seas rising, super storms ripping apart the coastlines and so many of the most vulnerable people and wild things being hurt by climate change, combined with an emboldened fascism on the rise, it feels more than ever like the world is being murdered right before our eyes. More than ever it’s becoming clear to more and more of us that we must rely on each other to be able to stop this destruction and organized hatred.Visit Event Website >>
