Tensions between the US and Iran remain extremely high between the US and Iran, since Trump ordered the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani, an act that brought us to the brink of war. Such a war would be catastrophic politically, strategically, and morally. It would kill countless innocent civilians, and would further destabilize the Middle East. It would exacerbate the climate crisis. It would make no sense.
So at Occupy Elgin on Saturday, January 20th, our message will be No War with Iran. read more
On Saturday, August 24th, and again On Saturday, August 31st, Occupy Elgin will gather from 1 PM till 2 PM at the corner of Kimball Street and Grove Avenue in Elgin. We will hold signs and distribute flyers calling for a Green New Deal.
Such a program would alleviate poverty and inequality, employ the currently unemployed and under-employed, and move us toward a more fair and equitable society.
Most important, it would address the urgency of the climate crisis. It would sharply reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and would start us moving over the next ten years towards 100% clean, renewable energy. It would move us back from the brink of climate catastrophe, and toward a livable planet.
Please join us at Kimball and Grove on Saturday, August 24th, and 31st, 2019 from 1 PM till 2 PM to advocate for a Green New Deal.read more
