WHO WILL OWN THE FOREST?
On September 26-28, Wall Street investors will join timber corporations, carbon offset & biomass companies in Portland for their annual “Who Will Own the Forest?” conference. This “signature timberland investment conference” brings together some of the biggest climate polluters, corporate forest clear-cutters, and false climate solutions peddlers. The organization Forests Over Profits invites us to come together to insist that our forests be managed for the health of our communities and climate, not Wall Street profits.
- Rally and protest against Wall Street Forestry on Wednesday, September 27th, outside the World Forestry Center. (time is 12pm-5/6pm, pop in when you can). Nancy Webster will speak at this event, highlighting deforestation and drinking water concerns.
- Attend the Forests Over Profits conference on Thursday September 28th, 10am-5:30pm, at the Unitarian Church in Downtown Portland (1211 SW Main St, Portland, OR 97205).
Forests Over Profits has a great program lined up for each event, and the main asks are that we spread the word and show up! It will be a great opportunity to connect with others interested in conservation efforts.
