No LNG Pipeline to CA in Our Name! (tags)
Residents of CA are welcome to comment on the proposed LNG tanker terminal in Coos Bay linking to the CA pipeline. This is a "not on our name" issue as the residents of Coos Bay, OR will bear the brunt of the risks from having a potentially explosive LNG terminal in their neighborhood, though all the natural gas will be exported into CA. Not to mention the international human rights violations and potential instability coming from extracting natural gas from countries like Bolivia, Algeria, etc..
Back to back direct actions for Cascadia's forests! (tags)
This week forest defenders across Cascadia united to expose the link between the politicans and corporations that profit from the destruction of US public lands. On Tuesday, 40 Cascadians occupied US Senator Ron Wyden's office. The following day, a protester dressed as a spotted owl locked to a 250 pound stump while others rallied, shutting down Umpqua Bank's flagship branch for several hours.
Both Umpqua Bank and Senator Wyden greenwash their images, depicting themselves as environmentally friendly while supporting and profiting from the destruction of Oregon's native forests. Senator Wyden presents himself as a green politican, and yet of all US politicans he is the fifth highest recipient of campaign contributions from the timber industry. Meanwhile, he sponsors earth-destroying legislation with eco-friendly names like the "Healthy Forest Restoration Act."
Similarly, Umpqua Bank markets itself as a new, hip, eco-conscious bank. In reality "StUmpqua" Bank is run by the dinosaurs of Oregon's ancient forest logging industry. With the past two days of forest actions, local activists are gearing up for the upcoming Earth First! Direct Action Rendezvous in Southwest Oregon the final weekend in August, near the massive Biscuit logging project. The National Earth First! Rendezvous will be held in Oregon in Summer 2005.
