Rally to tell Gov Brown: The time is NOW to stop Jordan Cove LNG!
For over a decade, the Jordan Cove fracked gas pipeline and export terminal has threatened private and public lands, tribal sites and cultural resources, public safety, and existing jobs in fishing, tourism, and more. Governor Brown cannot claim to be a climate champion while remaining silent on a proposed fracked gas export project that would become Oregon’s single largest climate polluter.
That’s why our communities will join together at a rally at the state capitol to tell Kate Brown that the time is now: deny all state permits, challenge the Federal Government’s power grabs, and join us in protecting health, safety, and our climate from the Jordan Cove fracked gas project.
Why are the stakes higher than ever before? In February, the federal government (FERC) will be making its decision about the Jordan Cove project. Meanwhile, the Trump administration is trying to rewrite important environmental laws, like the Clean Water Act, to take away our state’s authority to stop fossil fuel projects. This makes it even more urgent that Oregon’s state agencies act NOW to deny two critical state permits that are still pending and challenge any permit approvals from the Federal Government.
When: Thursday, November 21st at 11:00 am.
Where: Oregon State Capitol
900 Court St NE, Salem, Oregon 97301
