No LNG, No Pipelines. Rally to Protect our Home!
May 26, 2015 @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm
Take action in Salem to Protect Our Home from the impacts of two proposed fracked gas export projects in Northern and Southern Oregon. Canadian companies plan to build pipelines and terminals in Warrenton and Coos Bay to ship gas overseas, leaving Oregonians with the consequences.
Join us for a rally on the Capitol steps to show Governor Brown why she should stand with Oregonians and say NO to LNG!
Hear from political leaders like Peter Buckley and Bill Bradbury, tribal leader Cathy Sampson Kruse, affected landowners, and community activists about why LNG is a bad idea for Oregon. —> Keynote speech by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., President of Waterkeeper Alliance <--- Please wear RED to show your solidarity with the No LNG movement! * On April 29 Clatsop County rejected Oregon LNG's proposal for the Warrenton pipeline and terminal. Although this is a huge win, it's not the end; Oregon LNG is in the process of appealing the decision and shows no sign of giving up. That's why we need to make sure Governor Brown knows that LNG is a bad deal for Oregon! -------------------------------------------------------------- With Federal and state agencies currently reviewing permits for these projects, the time to demonstrate widespread opposition is NOW. In addition to being the largest fossil fuel export projects on the west coast, the terminals and pipelines would impact: - Climate: These projects would become the largest emitter of CO2 in the state. - Public lands & water ways: The pipelines will require a 95’ swath clear cut through public and private land and old growth forests. They will also cross hundreds of rivers and streams and go through major watersheds, impacting dozens of species, including threatened Coho salmon. - Property rights: Hundreds of property owners are threatened with the use of eminent domain for the pipeline right of way. - Safety: Oregon is overdue for a major earthquake, putting communities on the pipeline route and near the export terminals at serious risk.
