Event Title

A Line in the Sand: Cherry Point, Power Past Coal and Community Resistance

Streaming Media

Description

The same conditions that make Cherry Point the last, best site for a deep water port on the west coast also make it an immensely productive ecosystem, sustaining people for millennia. Cherry Point is squarely in the sights of coal companies desperate for new markets. Matt and Dana will discuss the economic roots of the problem and the probable impacts if Gateway Pacific Terminal goes forward, describe the growing resistance to NW coal export, and offer ways both to resist and to affirm a positive vision for the future.

About the Lecturers: Matt Krogh is the North Sound Bay Keeper with RE Sources for Sustainable Communities and Dana Lyons is a songwriter, performer and activist.
