Reminder! Rising Tide Meeting/Benefit WEDNESDAY!

Just a friendly reminder that tommorow, Wednedsay July 15, will be Portland Rising
Tide's monthly meeting: 7PM @ Red & Black Cafe
...PLUS....
a benefit show!
Local talents Ben Hydra and Tansy & Tarweed will be performing after the meeting!
27 folks were arrested last week blockading some of the last remaining native
forests in Southwest Oregon from being clear-cut. We will have a report-back from the
blockade in the Elliott state forest as well as discussion of the current threats
to our old growth and native forests in Oregon. There will also be a report-back
from the Earth First! Rendezvous and actions at Home Depot in Roseburg.

Additionally, there will be an update on the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change) and upcoming COP15 (The's UN's 15th "Conference of
the Parties" meeting of the countries signed on to UNFCC) in Copenhagen, and how
these policies will affect our forests at home and abroad.

We are hoping to raise as much as we can for the legal expenses of these forest
defenders though no one will be turned away. Please come out to learn and help
spread the word!!

Hope to see you there!
