@123 NW Flanders, Portland, OR
Join us tomorrow at 12:00 PM at ODOT's offices in Portland at 123 NW Flanders! We will be demanding ODOT stop permitting the tar sands megaloads. We will also be bringing the recent letter from the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla to make sure they have seen it. This letter describes the complete lack of consultation from ODOT before the first load moved. This action follows the arrests of sixteen people Monday as two disabled vehicles were used to blockade and stop the controversial tar sands megaload near John Day, Oregon. Tomorrow will be the seventh regional action against the Oregon megaloads in two and a half weeks, and follows blockades on December 1st and 2nd. Office occupations and disruptions have taken place at Omega Morgan's offices in Fife, WA and Hillsboro, OR, as well as the General Electric subsidiary that manufactured the machinery moving towards the Athabasca oil fields in Alberta. Invite your friends! We shouldn't have to do their work for them and blockade these loads, but we will if we have to! http://www.facebook.com/events/1404872783088136/
