IN THE FACE OF EXTINCTION, WE SAY REBELLION!
THIS IS A CLIMATE EMERGENCY.
XRPDX organizes people in the Portland, Oregon Metro area:
- By taking action (online and in person) to resist fossil fuel infrastructure, educate the broader public about the climate emergency, and support our allies in social justice struggles
- By spreading the word: a weekly newsletter; a website and blog; and social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram)
We are building a supportive activist culture of appreciation and skill-sharing. We share a love of the natural world and a vision of a more just and equitable world.
Action of the Week
The Necessity Series is a two-part documentary directed by Jan Haaken, filmmaker and professor emeritus of psychology at Portland State University, and Samantha Praus, researcher and filmmaker.
Much like Part I, Necessity II is guided by Native perspectives and weaves into the film dramatic regional sites where people are fighting fossil fuels. The film continues the story of activists enlisting the Necessity Defense, this time in a precedent-setting jury trial in Oregon after a direct action by Extinction Rebellion PDX at Zenith Energy in Portland. This story of climate resistance in the Pacific Northwest brings into view a historical landscape of tribal leaders, Indigenous activists, labor leaders, and white allies as they resist oil trains and terminals in the transport of highly toxic products through critical waterways and treaty lands.
