Join the Utah Tar Sands Resistance every Tuesday from 3-6PM for an open space meeting to learn about tar sands and oil shale, brainstorm ideas, get involved with the campaign, plan projects, research, make art, and generally have a good time while working to stop the first tar sands mine in the United States.
Tar Sands Tuesday are moving to the Boing! Anarchist Collective House, located at 608 South 500 East.
If you find yourself traveling through a low-hanging cloud of smog, with five big refineries, a medical waste incinerator, and the outlines of the world’s largest copper mine barely discernible through the pollution, you are not in fact in a post-apocalyptic landscape, but simply experiencing a regular inversion day in the Valley. Welcome to Salt Lake City — where the legislature seems to be remarkably good at catering to the non-breathing, lung-less part of the population, while ignoring the rest. That’s why we’re calling for a month of action for clean air throughout February.
Salt Lake City often has the worst air quality in the nation, especially during the winter inversion.
We invite all air breathers, organizations, and community groups to organize events, actions, and activities that spotlight air quality issues. Join the Wasatch Winter—a month of action for clean air—and make yourself heard!
