Protests and arrests over climate change

Posted on by

first_imgMae Penner, Chair of OUSU Environment & Ethics Campaign commented on the benefits of the protest. “I think the protest reveals a genuine concern for the environment and the direction of current government policy. Holding energy-users hostage by attempting to cut off their power supply raises questions of fairness, but it could also be argued that npower are holding people hostage by continuing a programme of heavily emitting coal-fired power stations.”Thames Valley Police had already arrested 11 protestors who chained themselves to coal conveyors on Tuesday evening. Based on suspicion of aggravated trespass, the eleven arrests, of six men and five women, took place in the coal conveyor building.Another Oxford student said, “The protest was organised by a group of ordinary people who happened to meet at the summer’s ‘Camp for Climate Action’ and upon hearing about the horrific effects of climate change, particularly that of burning coal decided to take action. So they got on their bikes and shut down a power station.”He added, “I absolutely support this protest, Didcot emits 20,000 tons of CO2 per year, which is the same amount as the 34 least emitting countries in the world.”Students and residents alike were also given a taste of climate change activism in central Oxford last weekend as environmental campaigners converged on Bonn Square on Saturday 24th October to mark 350.org’s International Day of Climate Action.Around 170 people participated in the 350.org demonstration in Bonn Square. OUSU President Stefan Baskerville and representatives from OUSU’s Environment & Ethics campaign, were also in attendance.Mae Penner was one of the key figures in the demonstration and she highlighted its importance, “As the climate talks in Copenhagen draw near, it is more vital than ever that we, as citizens, go out and show our political leaders that we support an ambitious, fair and binding international deal to combat climate change.”“It is estimated that climate change currently causes 300,000 deaths a year (99% of which are in developing countries), with this number set to rise rapidly. It was therefore very heartening to see so many people come together on Saturday, crossing the town-gown divide in a demonstration of international solidarity to demand positive political progress.”350.org, founded in 2007, is an international organisation that aims to cut global Carbon Dioxide emissions by 80% by 2050. The name derives from research that shows that CO2 levels in the atmosphere have exceeded a critical level of 350 parts per million. Saturday’s demonstration was part of a worldwide day of climate actions in support of the organisation.Daniel Lowe, OUSU Environment and Ethics Officer said, “It was great to see Oxford residents and Oxford students coming together to respond as a community to the great threat of our time.”Saturday saw an estimated 5200 events in 181 countries where people came together to raise awareness of the organisation and promote environmental causes. Climate change has been top of the agenda in Oxford this week, with two students arrested following a protest at an Oxfordshire power station, and town and gown joining together in a demonstration to raise the awareness of climate change.The Thames Valley Police Press Office has revealed that nine people, including two Oxford students, were arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass at Didcot Power Station, Oxfordshire, on Wednesday morning at 4.30am.The protesters, four women and five men, spent 3 nights in tents they pitched on top of an emissions chimney on Monday. They had planned to stay up the chimney for a week leaving the power station operators unable to restart the boilers, but came down when they realised they would be unable to shut down the facility as planned.One of the students, Lucie Minchin, of Pembroke College, said, “On Monday at about 4 in the morning over twenty of us cycled to Didcot Power Station.”She explained “We were prepared to be there for as long as it took, but our plans to go inside the flues were not going to work.” Minchin added that while her fellow protesters have been bailed away from Oxfordshire, she has been allowed to stay “because they can’t bail me away from my own house.”Another protester commented, “I never thought in my life I would do anything like this. It’s amazing how working with committed people can empower you to confront these massive companies and help force real change in the world.”The spokesperson for RWE npower said, “We are relieved that they have come down safely. We are grateful for the support of the police in ensuring that this incident came to a peaceful and safe conclusion and will cooperate with and support the police in any actions that they feel appropriate. The station continues to operate normally.”The spokesperson added that three of the power station’s four units had been converted to burn natural gas as an alternative to coal, “These 3 units were already using gas before protesters arrived on site. Didcot is unique in its ability to burn both coal and gas, to reflect market needs.”“We recognise the challenge of climate change and operate a diverse mix of power stations. That mix will change going forward as we move towards a low carbon economy.”last_img read more

Alumna Catherine Shieh advocates for political engagement

Posted on by

first_imgNestled in the heart of the Silicon Valley, Monta Vista High School in Cupertino is notorious for being one of the most academically intense in the state. With Apple’s headquarters just a stone’s throw away and many of the residents employed in the technology industry, Monta Vista has an undeniable emphasis on math and science. Within this high-tech world, USC alumna Catherine Shieh found her true calling: politics.“I just clearly didn’t fit the math and science mold, and I had other strengths besides every other Monta Vista student,” Shieh said.Her sister suggested joining Vision New America, a program that focuses on increasing civic engagement among underrepresented youth by placing high school students into state legislative offices. Shieh was placed in the office of then-State Assemblymember Joe Coto (D-District 23).“I realized that politics isn’t that bad.There are a lot of good people, [for example] staffers and other names that you don’t hear, and these are people who truly do want to figure out what is best for everybody,” Shieh said. “Politics is so tricky because you technically shouldn’t be excluding anybody, and I think that’s so fascinating. To realize that good intentions can go somewhere in politics was inspiring, and I realized this is where I’m meant to be.”Shieh continued her political involvement at USC. She began as a student worker for the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, which she said “got [her] foot in the door.” In addition to serving as finance director and president of the USC College Democrats, she went on to intern for the campaign finance firm Maravich Associates LLC, as well as a several campaigns — including current Congresswoman Janice Hahn’s congressional campaign, Senator Dianne Feinstein’s re-election campaign and current State Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas’ campaign. She also interned for the nonprofit California Forward and for Congressman Mike Honda.Shieh focused on civil rights and Asian-American issues while working for Honda. She also helped open the Congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus, which launched in June 2012 and focuses on preventing bullying in educational institutions and other establishments. Shieh said the political culture of USC did not concern her as much as political culture in general, especially the lack of engagement among minorities, particularly Asian Americans.“Asian Americans, at the end of the day, are the least likely to vote, the least likely to get health insurance, the least likely to be civically engaged, the least likely to be anywhere in politics,” Shieh said. “The fact that, among my peers, I will be the only Asian American, let alone the only Asian-American female, they’ll encounter, I knew very early on I was not going to be like everyone else.”After graduating in December 2013, Shieh moved to Washington D.C. to intern for Congressman Ami Bera of California’s 7th Congressional District. She continued her work on Asian-American issues as well as pharmaceutical drug regulations. Drawing on her experience working for Honda, she was asked to help create the California Public Higher Education Caucus for Bera. Shieh said that following the passage of Proposition 13 in 1978, the University of California and California State University schools have become more dependent on the federal government for funding. The caucus will advocate for the two state university systems and focus on improving quality, affordability and accessibility of higher education. “America depends on California, California needs to advocate for itself,” Shieh said. Shieh emphasized the importance of civic engagement and political involvement for students.“If you don’t vote, don’t complain because that’s no longer your place,” Shieh said. “We forget that people fought and died to make sure that we can vote. Those who identify as undocumented, they would willingly do anything for their voice to be heard and their voice legally cannot be heard. Voting is your first responsibility, and there are 11 million undocumented Americans who don’t have that luxury.”According to Shieh, the most pernicious force in politics is not bad intentions, but apathy. “I don’t think there are a lot of ‘bad people’ who are in politics,” Shieh said. “I think there’s just enough people that are willing to opt out of politics, which means they are OK with what’s happening, and when you have enough people that are OK with the status quo that makes things the way they are, and that make it stay and that makes that power stay and it’s more apathy that will hurt us than people with mal intentions.”She advised students interested in politics to remember the power of asking for what they want. “Always advocate for yourself, and always ask,” Shieh said. “You never know who’s going to be your friend at the end of the day, and especially trying to get people of color to be involved, it’s always on the individual to ask for more resources, always ask for that business card, always ask to meet up a second time, always ask for that email, always ask for an opportunity because all that takes is an ask. I know that I would clearly not be where I am today if I didn’t have a boss who told me, ‘You always have to ask.’”last_img read more
