Global Frackdown Event in Warrenton, Oregon

September 22, 2012  ~  6:30PM  ~  Warrenton Community Center

Please join us if you are concerned about LNG export plans in the Pacific Northwest. 

 

The Warrenton event, part of the international Global Frackdown event, will address Oregon LNG’s proposal to export North American natural gas through Oregon & Washington to foreign markets. The event is co-sponsored by Food & Water Watch and Columbia Riverkeeper.

The proposed Oregon LNG export terminal in Warrenton seeks to export North American gas, much of which will be drilled using controversial and polluting hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) techniques.

For residents of the Lower Columbia River in Clatsop, Columbia, and Cowlitz counties, Oregon LNG’s plans to export our natural gas will directly impact hundreds of landowners near proposed pipelines in Oregon and Washington.

We encourage you to join us on September 22nd to get an update about the fight against LNG export and fracking.

 

EVENT LOCATION:

Warrenton Community Center
170 SW 3rd St.
Warrenton, OR 97146
 
 

At 6:30 – Screening of “The Sky is Pink”

We will kick-off the event with a screening of “The Sky Is Pink” — a 20-minute film about the impacts of natural gas hydro-fracture drilling (“fracking”) — by award-winning director Josh Fox (director of “Gasland”). The screening is sponsored by Food & Water Watch.

 

After the film – Brief Presentation & Discussion

After the short film, there will be a brief presentation and discussion about upcoming steps for stopping LNG exports in Clatsop County. The presentation and discussion will be led by Dan Serres, Columbia Riverkeeper’s Conservation Director, and Julia DeGraw, Food & Water Watch’s Northwest Organizer. They will provide the most current information available about how Oregon and Washington can deny LNG exports. Landowners near the Oregon LNG or Williams Washington Expansion proposed pipelines are encouraged to attend.
