Medford Rally Against the Proposed Pacific Connector LNG Pipeline
Please join us on January 27 to show your opposition to the
proposed Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) pipeline in southern Oregon. For
more than six years, multinational energy companies have targeted
southern Oregon for a proposed LNG import facility in Coos Bay and a
234-mile gas pipeline across Coos, Douglas, Jackson and Klamath
counties. We are working with a strong coalition to stop this fossil
fuel development that threatens Oregon’s rivers, salmon, forests,
wildlife, communities and hundreds of private property owners. The
project is still a long way from getting all the state and federal
approvals it would need to start any construction, but vigilance is key
and we need your help to stop this project and protect Oregon!
Legislation was introduced this month in Salem that would change the definition of “applicant” for removal-fill permits. If passed, this bill will fast-track the permitting process for the LNG Pacific Connector Pipeline by allowing companies to apply for permits on landowners' property without their knowledge or consent. This would be a huge win for the pipeline company. The LNG industry pushed similar fast-track legislation in the past two legislative sessions. Those bills were defeated twice, thanks to strong opposition from property rights advocates and LNG opponents. It is time to defeat this legislation again.

We can stop the bill and stop the LNG proposal. We need to stand together and send a clear message to the company and our politicians: Stop the LNG Pipeline!

When: Thursday, January 27th from 12-1pm
