O’Bryant Square – SW Park & Washington
— As the third megaload prepares to leave the Port of Umatilla for the Tar Sands of Alberta, Canada, we are keeping pressure on local corporations and decision-makers with a clear and resounding message: Stop The Megaloads!
Join us to rally again and show the fossil fuel industry that we will not be silenced, intimidated or stopped.
This will be the ninth regional action against the Oregon megaloads in the past month. Disruptions have taken place at Omega Morgan’s offices in Fife, WA and Hillsboro, OR, at the General Electric subsidiary where tar sands equipment is manufactured, at ODOT’s offices in Portland, and, of course, in the path of the megalaods in eastern Oregon.
We will be leaving O’Bryant Square and walking to the site of the rally at 8:45 am. Be prompt! Wear a rain jacket! Invite your friends! Share on Facebook!
Portland Rising Tide
PS – We’ll be having a Portland Rising Tide Orientation on Wednesday 1/22 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM at Laughing Horse Books (12 NE 10th). More details to come next week, but save the date so that you can get involved in our work!
