Democracy School Workshop
February 2, 2015, 6:00 – 9:00 P.M.,
Newport Public Library
Communities across the country and Oregon trying to stop a wide range of threats – such as GMO’s, pesticides, fracking, factory farming, sewage sludging, water privatization – all run into the same problem: they don’t have the legal authority to say “NO” to what is harming them.
This 3-hour Democracy School workshop will lead you through the following:
• Why we have a corporate dominated, state-assisted structure of law
• How it looks when communities try to find remedy within that system
• What communities are doing to reclaim their rights for the sake of health and democracy for people, communities, and nature
• How Oregon counties are moving “community bills of rights” to protect communities and move them towards sustainability
