Rally at the Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) building to deliver 16,000 petitions to the newly appointed DSL Director Mary Abrams. Right now, the Oregon DSL is making the decision whether or not to approve a permit for the Morrow-Pacific coal export project. Speakers are introduced by Lucy Sedgwick, Field Organizer for Oregon Sierra Club: Andy Harris of Physicians for Social Responsibility; Kathy Seabrook, Columbia Gorge recreationist; Jeremy Ferguson, Mayor Of Milwaukie, Oregon. Big Coal still plans to send nearly 9 million tons of coal down the Columbia River every year, more than three times as much coal as we burn within our state limits every year. With climate disruption showing up on the doorsteps of thousands of people last week, it is only becoming more imperative that we do all we can to stop dirty coal exports.
