Five environmental activists currently facing felony charges in four states for temporarily shutting down fossil fuel pipelines to fight climate change will discuss their nonviolent direction action this weekend. The “valve turner” protest was in response “to a call from the Standing Rock Sioux for international prayer and action on the growing climate emergence,” organizers say. On Oct. 11, 2016, activists Ken Ward, Annette Klapstein, Emily Johnston, Michael Foster and Leonard Higgins (previously of Corvallis, now living in Eugene) shut off emergency valves on five pipelines from Washington to Minnesota, stopping the flow of tar sands oil into the U.S. Their message was, “We are in a climate emergency now.” With the final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline granted under the climate-change-denial-oriented Trump administration, the valve turners say that our future is hanging in the balance. Higgins says, “Because of the climate change emergency I am committed to the moral necessity of participating in nonviolent direct action to protect life.”

“‘Rebellious’ Valve Turners Speak on Civil Disobedience, the Dakota Pipeline” is 7 pm, Friday, Feb. 24 at the First United Methodist Church, 1376 Olive Street in Eugene and 6:30 pm, Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Corvallis Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2945 N.W. Circle Blvd., with author Kathleen Dean Moore. FREE. Find out more at shutitdown.today.

In the wake of the Women’s March on Washington this past January, local women-ran group Makeba Arts and Entertainment is keeping the party going with their upcoming Mardi Gras themed shindig. Makeba Arts and Entertainment is a decade in the making and consistently aims to create a diverse, female-centered arts and music culture in Eugene. The two women behind the scenes are Shea Baker, who spent 12 years in nonprofit women’s healthcare, and Merrill Moore, a real estate broker whose passion lies in advocating for women’s rights. Together, the women have put together music line-ups and events for the Oregon Country Fair, Dance for Africa, Kutsinhira Cultural Arts Center and more. And they aren’t stopping now. Next on Makeba’s to-do list is hosting Eugene’s First Annual Mardi Gras, complete with a masquerade and dance party theme. The event is a mash-up of live music, poetry slams and visual arts. Hold tight to your masks with a line up like funk electronica band Soul Vibrator and the ever-groovy Eleven Eyes. What is most impressive about this show, however, is the number of local businesses eagerly standing in support. Twenty-four women-owned or co-owned businesses agreed to sponsor the event, including Tacovore, Hot Mama’s Wings, WildCraft Cider Works and As You Like It. “What’s so exciting about this event is how it reflects women actively participating in our communities from the local to the national level,” Baker says, “We here in Eugene are coming together … by organizing around support for nonprofit organizations on the local level.” All proceeds from the event go to local groups who advocate, support and provide services for women’s health and safety. Sexual Assault and Support Services (SASS), Planned Parenthood of S.W. Oregon, the Trauma Healing Project and Well Mama all make the list. 

Don’t forget to bring your beads to Eugene’s First Annual Mardi Gras 7 pm Friday, Feb. 24, at Hi-Fi; tickets $12 in advance and $15 at the door. — Kelsey Anne Rankin 

Punk rock cool dad Mike Watt is best known for his work as bassist and vocalist with insanely influential bands like The Minutemen and fIREHOSE. Since then Watt has remained remarkably prolific, getting down with his gruff and utterly unique self in a variety of projects and on all sorts of stages, most recently with his band The Missingmen. Watt’s latest album, rumored to be released any minute now, is tentatively called Big Nuts Yonder — why? Because he’s Mike Watt, and he does what he wants. For now, Watt comes to Eugene with his merry band of Missingmen, bringing underrated punk band Toys That Kill along for the ride. 

Mike Watt + the Missingmen play with Toys That Kill 9 pm Thursday, March 2, at Hi Fi Music Hall Lounge; $10 advance, $12 day of show, 21-plus. — Will Kennedy
