Occupy Elgin, Sat, June 10th, 1 PM to 2 PM. Honor the Paris Climate Accord.

Occupy Elgin will meet at our usual location,  the corner of Kimball Street and Grove Avenue in Elgin, across from Gail Borden Library from 1 PM till 2 PM.  Our Message will be Honor the Paris Climate Accord!

Like many people around the country, we are horrified by Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the accord.  But we are inspired that so many people, even entire cities and states and institutions, have stepped forward to say that they will observe the Paris Accord by cutting greenhouse gasses and cutting their own carbon footprint.
We will keep up our part of the Paris Accords.  We will take responsibility for making the earth livable for our children and grandchildren. read more
