03-2-20–Salem Climate Strike
Climate Activists held a climate strike in front of the Oregon Capitol to advocate for climate action on Friday, Feb. 28.
Their mission began shortly after the Republican senators walked out on Monday, Feb. 25 to try and curb an environmental bill (HB 1530) from being passed. Telling them to “do their jobs and protect their constituents” from the impending climate crisis.
Groups came in two shifts, one from 12-1 p.m and the other from 3-4 p.m, made up of student activists from both high school and Universities.
While both groups had vastly different people show up, they all shared the same common interest as they advocated in front of the capitol on a cold friday afternoon.
