Oregon’s farmers, ranchers, land-owners, fishermen, hunters, workers, educators, and many more are standing up and saying “NO LNG EXPORTS!” Can you join them in protesting the planned export terminals and pipelines for liquefied natural gas?
Hundreds of Oregonians will be gathering on the steps of the State Capitol on Tuesday, May 26, to ask our Governor to stand with us in saying NO to LNG and YES to protecting Oregon’s future! This is our opportunity to stop the largest fossil fuel export project on the West Coast and pave the way for a better future for Oregon.
You can help most by attanding the rally in Salem next Tuesday! You can also help spread the word to mobilize our communities to take action. Group transportation is being coordinated all across the state and we need to make sure we pack those buses to show our decision makers that turning Oregon into a fossil fuel export hub is unacceptable.
To defend our home from exploitation by powerful corporate interests, we need everyone to show up and take action before it’s too late. Whether you care about clean air and water, energy prices, or stopping what will be the largest greenhouse gas emitter in Oregon, we need your voices in Salem.
