Terra-Gen Protest Rally and March – 12/14

Terra-Gen Protest Rally and March (Update)

Hosted By: North Coast Climate Justice Coalition
Date and Time: Saturday, December 14 at 12 PM – 4 PM
Location: Winema Theatre, 116 Main St, Scotia

March and rally calling on Board of Supervisors to deny Terra-Gen Wind Project.

On Saturday, December 14, Humboldt residents will gather in the towns of Scotia and Rio Dell for a march and rally to voice opposition to the Terra-Gen wind project. This project is the poster child for false climate change solutions, impacting cultural, ecological, and community resources for the financial benefit of Terra-Gen, wholly owned by Energy Capital Partners, a firm with billions of dollars invested in dirty
gas, oil and power plant projects.


The rally starts at 12:00 PM at the Rio Dell City Hall, 675 Wildwood Ave, followed by a march from Rio Dell to Scotia beginning at 12:30, culminating in a rally at 1:00 PM at the Winema Theatre, 116 Main St, Scotia 

The march is a show of solidarity with the Wiyot, Yurok, and other Tribes, the towns of Scotia and Rio Dell, environmentalists, and the many residents in the Eel River Valley that oppose this project. While we recognize that we have a climate crisis and need to do something about it, we need a project that is based on the principles of climate justice – where we do not place the burdens of massively scaled alternative energy projects on rural communities, indigenous peoples, and a world-renowned site of rich biodiversity. Climate justice will never come from energy projects like this that ignore the legitimate claims and explicit wishes of indigenous people, rural communities, and environmentalists. Humboldt County need not sell out to the first industrialized alternative energy project that comes along.

Call to Action: Stand with the Wiyot Tribe, Protect Tsakiyuwit

Hosted By: The Wiyot Tribe
Date and Time: Monday, December 16, 2019 9 AM – 5 PM
Location: Adorni Community and Recreation Center
1011 Waterfront Dr, Eureka, California 95501

Stand with the Wiyot Tribe, Protect Tsakiyuwit, speak out against the Humboldt Wind Project on Monday December 16, 2019 at 9 am. The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing at the Adorni Center located at 1011 Waterfront Drive in Eureka, CA.

If you haven’t seen the beauty, biology, and breathtaking views from Tsakiyuwit, we recommend you carpool with friends up to the ridge, taking either Monument Road up from Rio Dell, or Bear River Ridge Road from Mattole Road, south of Ferndale. Look south to Table Bluff and Humboldt Bay, listen to the soundscape of the ridge, and see the eagles riding in the thermals. Savor the place and the wild sounds of nature, which without our unified voice will be replaced by the sounds of Earth movers, engines, beeping, hammering, dynamiting, and finally an eternal whooshing of 400 foot blades, 600 feet in the sky, twice the height of our tallest redwoods, obliterating the Tsakiyuwit soundscape and the cultural landscape of the Wiyot and Humboldt County.

This site is a significant Cultural Historic Site and High Prayer Site for the Wiyot People.
