Join us at a public hearing to stop the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline in Coos County.
If built, the Jordan Cove LNG project would harm nearly 500 waterways (including the Coos Bay Estuary), seize property from private landowners through eminent domain, put North Bend and Coos Bay residents in a hazardous blast zone, impact Tribal territories, cultural resources, and burial grounds, and become the largest source of climate pollution in the state.
The Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) will hear from the public about whether Jordan Cove's Removal-Fill permit should be denied or approved. This is one of the state permits that, if denied, would stop the Jordan Cove LNG even if the Federal Government approves the project.
RALLY: 4:00pm on the public sidewalk across from the Mill Casino
SPEAKERS and TESTIMONY PREP: 4:30pm in the Hazel-Willow Room in the Mill Casino
At 4:00PM the rally will begin on the public sidewalk across the street from the Mill Casino (3201 Tremont Ave., North Bend, Ore.) At 4:30 we will move inside to the Hazel-Willow Rm in the Casino where we will have snacks, FREE t-shirts, speakers talking about the impacts of the project, and an info station to help you write your comments. We will have comment templates, information about the impacts of Jordan Cove, and people to help you write comments at the info table between 4:30 and 5:30.
Sign-up to deliver testimony at the hearing will begin at 5:15PM. If you are writing testimony at home, please bring a copy to submit to DSL in the case they run out of time and you do not get to speak. Testimony should be less than 2 minutes. ANYONE CAN AND SHOULD SIGN UP TO TESTIFY! We will be doing our best to ensure those most impacted by the project testify first. (MORE INFO ON WRITING COMMENTS: www.nolngexports.org/write-comments/)
At 5:30PM the hearing will start in the Salmon Rm. at the Mill Casion. No signs or posters are allowed inside the hearing room, or the Mill Casino in general, so please WEAR RED to show your opposition to Jordan Cove, and leave your signs outside. At 8PM sharp DSL will close the hearing, even if there are people still signed up to speak.
