Global Climate Strike-Eugene Oregon

Video clip from the Global Climate Strike in Eugene Oregon on March 15, 2019.

 https://youtu.be/DomQ1UxlTww
Video features three youths who are part of the youth climate lawsuit, suing the government for failing to protect their future. This has been ongoing since before the Trump administration, who has been fighting it in court and so far managing to keep the trial from taking place.

These high school students bring the gathering up to date on the status of the lawsuit, asking people to go to www.joinjuliana.org and add their name in support of the Amicus Brief.

Following their brief remarks another speaker, who came to this country from Peru when she was 5 years old, speaks about the air pollution in Lima, and compares the failure of the government in that country to the failure of our government.

Video is seven minutes in length.
