Pacific Northwest Says NO to fossil fuel exports!

The Pacific Northwest is under attack. We will fight back: defending what we love and our right to a safe climate and future. Big coal, oil, and gas plan to transform the NW coastline from Oregon to Alaska into a dirty fossil fuel corridor with over 15 export terminals proposed so far.

The month of July will be filled with a series of events. The main action will take place on Saturday, July 27th, with folks from throughout the Northwest coming together to join the national Summer Heat campaign for a fun and family friendly action. We will combine fights to stop energy extraction, infrastructure and export, and demonstrate what it will look like if fossil fuel corporations try to imperil the climate by moving fossil fuels down the Columbia River.

Sign up and register to attend, ideally with a kayak although we need you on the land as well! We will be in touch about opportunities to help us plan this action as more details to emerge in the coming days. In the meantime, sign up to attend, spread the word on social media and start talking about regional carpools!
