As you know, the third megaload was permitted last week just in time to be snowed in. But the snow has melted, WE EXPECT IT TO MOVE TONIGHT (Tuesday Feb 11th) and we want you to come to the rally!
Can you join us tonight night at the Port of Umatilla? If you haven’t been out to Eastern Oregon for a megaload rally, this may be your last chance and we must show tar sands profiteers that we won’t let Oregon become a long term heavy haul route for equipment used to destroy the earth and climate.
