Background

Back when John Kitzhaber was Governor in the late 1990’s, the Oregon Legislator, then controlled by conservative Republicans, passed one bill after another seemingly aimed at turning the State into one big paved-over clearcut. Kitzhaber vetoed them all and earned the nickname “Doctor No.” As the fossil fuel industry works to turn Oregon into a grimy thoroughfare for the transport of oil, coal, gas, and large pieces of tar sands extraction equipment, we need him to once again stand with us by saying “No!”

This rally is to be held outside The Benson Hotel where there will be a $500/plate fundraising dinner for Kitzhaber’s re-election campaign. The dinner starts at 6 PM. Please join us outside in front of the hotel at 5:30 PM to let John Kitzhaber, Governor of Oregon know that we would like him to support us in our efforts to prevent the fossil fuel industry from using Oregon as an industrial corridor for the transport of fossil fuels and the oversized equipment related to their extraction.
