@Terry D. Schrunk Plaza
Join Portland Rising Tide and others Monday, April 28th at 12pm for a mass action in downtown Portland to highlight the farce of regulatory agencies that work hand in hand with the fossil fuel industry; and to show that the people will step up to enforce our urgent demand: “Coal, Oil, Gas – None Shall Pass! Governor Kitzhaber and his agencies including the State Land Board, DEQ, DSL, and ODOT have been complicit in issuing permits for coal and oil terminals in Oregon. Now they are being asked to approve the west coast’s first Natural Gas export terminal and a 350+ mile pipeline to Coos Bay, OR. This action will be held in conjunction with the Global Climate Convergence; an international call for “10 days to change course” between Earth Day and May Day; marked with direct actions and/or demonstrations highlighting the joint struggles of labor and climate justice. ***If you can, come dressed in either a suit/jacket, OR as your favorite Oregon flora, fauna, or person. We will have opportunities for some fun street theater!*** Also, we need your help to spread the word about this and other upcoming events - please invite all of your facebook friends who might be interested; and contact us if you are interested in phonebanking, flyering, etc. http://www.facebook.com/events/1511072169120298/
