Megaload Planning and Action Meeting II
Thanks to all who attended the Megaload Action Briefing and Planning Meeting on Thursday night! We had an update from the actions in Umatilla over the past weekend when the first megaload left the Port of Umatilla on Sunday, December 1. Special thanks to Cathy Sampson-Kruse, an Umatilla tribal elder, and Kayla Godowa of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs for sharing their deep commitment to climate, sacred lands and our responsibility to our decedents for 7 generations.
We discussed the work of Portland Rising Tide, the tar sands, and the next two megaload shipments planned for December and January. It is heartening for us to see such a tremendous response.
