Raise the Roof about Coal Trains!

Come march in the Eugene Celebration Parade to say NO to Coal and Yes to Clean Energy! The Many Rivers Chapter of the Sierra Club, Beyond Toxics and partners Power Past Coal and No Coal Eugene are calling on Lane County residents to join us to make a strong statement against coal trains in the parade entry “King Coal and the Fossil Fools.”  Meet at 9:00 AM for a 10:00 parade start.  We gather on Saturday, 8/25 on 19th Avenue between Ferry and Patterson.  Look for the No Coal Sign!  We are Entry # 71. Us: We supply costumes and messaging. You: bring family members, friends and energy (and homemade signs are welcomed too).  We will also have work parties to make signs.  For information call Beyond Toxics at[masked] or email [masked].

    The crazy Eugene Celebration parade was even crazier this year with activists from Sierra Club, Beyond Toxics and No Coal Eugene bringing a big black toxic coal train to the city streets.
