Earlier this year thirteen hundred Oregonians decorated recycled cardboard to creatively express their concerns about climate change. On February 17th, the pieces were assembled into a 117-foot mosaic of a salmon in Medford, generating national attention. http://rogueclimateart.org/
On Wednesday May 22 the salmon is migrating to Salem!
Network with leaders & celebrate climate action. Trained citizen lobby teams will ask legislators to support a predictable, revenue-neutral carbon tax. With Oregon’s proud history of bipartisan problem-solving & innovation on tough issues Oregon can again lead the country on humanity’s greatest challenge yet: climate disruption.

We the people of Occupy Salem recognize the blatant injustices that are being perpetrated by the political and economic structures in our own nation and around the world. In solidarity with groups such as Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Portland, we support was to re-empower the individual and society, so that we may identify and discuss solutions to resolve expressed issues, through recognizing our common humanity. Occupy Salem is an all-inclusive, ongoing action in which people may engage in meaningful conversation to find common ground. We invite you to add your voice.
Occupy Salem holds an informal general assembly on Friday nights at 7 pm at the Friends Meeting House located at 490 19th Street NE, Salem, Oregon. Please check the calendar for activities held by Occupy Salem and allied organizations. http://www.osoga.com/calendar
