350 Eugene supporters have been pivotal in the fight to stop the Jordan Cove LNG liquification export terminal and the 235 mile Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline for the past six years!
Hundreds of you donated money, pressured elected officials, testified at FERC meetings, joined Raging Granny’s on bus trips, attended comment writing workshops, Land Use Board Appeal meetings, county commissioner meetings, wrote LTE’s, held a sing-a-long in the Capitol rotunda and a peaceful dignified civil disobedient “sit in” with arrests in Governor Brown’s office.
We have been members of a 30+ statewide coalition of youth, climate activists, landowners, fishermen and crabbers. When six Tribal Nations joined the fight, our power coalesced! We protested at the capitol and were listening to Chairman of the Klamath tribe, Don Gentry speak, when a bald eagle circled three times over head. It was a sacred moment.
While this “energy project” is not 100% dead (Pembina can re-apply) the company admits they see no clear way forward. Stopping this project protects Oregonians and the world from the life-threatening affects using more fracked gas fossil fuels for energy.
The coalition was held together and lead by the fabulous young activists at Rogue Climate in Ashland. For lots more information check out their website.
When we organize together, We win! Off fossil fuels and on to our renewable energy future!
Thanks, 350 Eugene supporters!
