The WV Environmental Council has made the decision to cancel tomorrow’s E-day! tabling and speakers due to the ongoing teachers’ strike.
As WV Citizen Action Group notes, “Today saw the largest crowds yet, and at one point the Capitol was closed to further visitors due to capacity concerns by Capitol Police and the State Fire Marshall. This is unprecedented!”
OVEC staff and volunteers will still attempt to enter the Capitol Tuesday, to distribute our literature and red bandannas, and to show support for teachers and other public employees! Be on the look out for Captain Planet…
For folks close to Charleston, note that the GREEN Jam is still on at the Empty Glass starting at 4:30 p.m.
For those of you in the Huntington/Tri-State area, we hope to see you at the Tri-State Water Defense Public Forum, from 6-8 p.m. tomorrow evening, Tuesday, March 6. We meet at Marshall University, in Room 402 of Drinko Library.
Organizers of this public forum include OVEC, Marshall University Native American Student Organization, West Virginia Highlands Conservancy, Lawrence County (OH) Organizing for Action,
Citizens Climate Lobby of Huntington, Tri-State Indivisible ad the Four-Pole Creek Watershed Group.
We will have short films, speakers, and a public discussion concerning the fairness of the use of our natural resources, and how massive oil, gas, and petrochemical development will affect average people in the Tri-State Area and our water resources.
This meeting is a chance to hear from other concerned residents in the area, share
information, and maybe even have a chance to talk with officials. We hope to see you there!
