Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Have you heard the news? We’re making waves! Thanks again to all of you who signed our successful petition in opposition to Pembina’s proposed propane terminal: It’s all about taking on the fossil fuel industry here in our city. Last time, it was Pembina. This time, it’s Shell. And we need you!
Join us at Cathedral Park in Portland on Tuesday to oppose Shell Oil’s destructive Arctic drilling operations. We have just learned that Shell’s icebreaker is leaving Wednesday morning; We will launch a kayak “floatilla” vigil to stop Shell’s newly-repaired icebreaker from leaving the port. An on-water and on-land vigil will help share the message that we hold our water, land, air, and stories to be more sacred than profits from destructive energy extraction.
Where: Cathedral Park, North Portland. Boat ramp is at the end of N Baltimore Ave, on the North side of the park.
When: Tuesday July 28th, Starting at noon, lasting until the ship leaves (and hopefully keeping it there!)
