EARTH DAY 2015 is on! Forty five years after it began, a committee of local organizers is keeping the global celebration alive in Eugene/Springfield! This year’s event, April 25th at Alton Baker Park, replaces the recently- canceled annual observance originally scheduled for April 18th at EWEB (River Place Plaza). “EARTH DAY IN THE PARK!” is the theme for what promises to be a fun Saturday for planetary citizens of all persuasions. All will be inspired, educated and motivated by the day of activities, workshops, music and a speakers program addressing the urgent environmental issues facing our planet today.
The event runs from 2 to 6pm, with a broadcast-ready speakers program around the midpoint. Stay tuned for more details as participating organizations, speakers and musicians are confirmed!

Jekyll Island: The Truth Behind the Federal Reserve gives a history of our monetary system very different from the one you may have learned in school. Global bankers have waged an unrelenting war on popular government in the United States since the American Revolution, until they were able to trick congress into establishing the Federal Reserve system 100 years ago. By gaining the power to control the money supply, the private bankers who own the Federal Reserve system have taken control and made a mockery of self government. Through manipulation of a constant series of economic booms and busts, wealth has been concentrated in the hands of a tiny elite. Our economic vitality and the common good have been sacrificed to make a shrinking ruling class even richer.
Join us for the movie and a discussion of the real steps we can take locally to create a money system which builds democracy and prosperity for all.
