VOICES FROM JUNE 4 PORTLAND RALLY ON CLIMATE JUSTICE

 

Desiree Hellegers brings audio highlights from the June 4 rally in Pioneer Courthouse Square in support of the Children's Trust climate justice lawsuit Juliana v. United States. The landmark case being argued in front of the Federal Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit asserts the youth plaintiff's right to a habitable planet and that the plaintiffs are being deprived of their “rights to life, liberty, property, and public trust resources"  by the federal government. The segment begins with Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty.
