Hundreds to Rally at Oregon State Capitol at on Thursday to Urge Governor Brown to Put an End to Jordan Cove LNG
On Thursday, January 11, hundreds from Oregon and Northern California will gather on the steps of the Oregon State Capitol Building in Salem to ask Governor Brown to stand up for the climate by using the state’s authority to stop the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline for good.
A rally on the Capitol steps will start at 12:30 pm Thursday and will include live music, street theatre, and speakers including former Oregon Secretary of State Bill Bradbury, State Representative Pam Marsh, and youth from impacted communities. The rally coincides with the release of a report from Oil Change International that details the climate impacts of this proposal from fracking to the burning of gas overseas.
