Mosier Oil Train Wreck Anniversary 6/3/2017
Mosier Community School

WHAT: Join us on Saturday, June 3, 2017 to mark the one-year anniversary of the frightening, nearly catastrophic oil train derailment, spill, and fire in Mosier, Oregon. We will gather in Mosier to make a statement against additional oil trains coming through the Columbia River Gorge.

WHERE: Mosier Community School. 1204 Historic Columbia River Highway

WHEN: Saturday, June 3, 2017, at 12:00 noon

DETAILS: What to bring? Bring yourself and friends, a snack, a hat, and good walking shoes.

Portland Metro Area Carpool: Call, text, email (goto350pdx@gmail.com) 503-705-1943 by NOON on Friday, June 2nd.

WHY: One year after the derailment, contamination persists in Mosier's groundwater. Meanwhile, oil and railroad companies are seeking to expand oil and coal train traffic through the Columbia River Gorge, despite opposition from Columbia River Tribes, the town of Mosier, and many larger cities along the potential route. The cities of Portland and Vancouver even passed new local laws banning oil train terminals, citing Mosier's experience.

In coming months, Washington’s Governor Inslee will make a final decision about whether to deny the Tesoro Savage oil train terminal in Vancouver, a project that would bring up to five loaded oil trains each day through the Columbia River Gorge. Mosier’s oil train fire should be all the evidence that Governor Inslee needs to deny the oil train terminal. On June 3rd, we will gather to remind Governor Inslee and other leaders to heed warnings from Mosier, tribal communities threatened by oil trains, and cities like Vancouver, Spokane, and Portland - all of whom are standing up to oil trains.

Protect farms and important salmon habitat: Port Westward rezone
Columbia County Courthouse, St. Helens

WHAT: Port Westward rezone goes to a vote on September 13th. Now is your last chance to team up with farmers to fight a controversial effort to open over 800 acres of high-quality farmland along the Columbia River for industrial development, including methanol export and oil-by-rail terminals. While no public testimony will be accepted at the meeting, a packed room is important.

WHO: Columbia County Commissioners are expected to deliberate and vote on the Port Westward rezone. Last month, impacted farmers and community members testified before the county commissioners, describing how the rezone would harm farms and quality of life. The Port of St. Helens admitted that methanol export and oil-by-rail terminals are potential candidates for the high-quality farmland threatened by the rezone. Trading high-value agricultural land for fossil fuel expansion is the wrong direction for Oregon.

WHEN: Wednesday, September 13, 2017, at 10:00 AM.

WHERE: Columbia County Courthouse located at 230 Strand Street, St. Helens, OR 97051.

KWEL' HOY Totem Pole Journey in VancouverWA: We Draw the Line!
Vancouver Community Library

The House of Tears Carvers of the Lummi Nation will travel again across the western United States and Canada with a totem pole to bring attention to proposed fossil fuel terminals, pipelines, and other facilities and the threat they pose to tribes and local communities.

The journey follows the 2016 decision of the Corps of Engineers to deny the permit for the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal coal terminal at Cherry Point based on its potential impacts on the treaty fishing rights of the Lummi Nation.

This tour, Kwel’Hoy, We Draw the Line!, will celebrate victories, commemorate alliances, and prepare for the coming battles as we work together for the protection of mother earth.

Join us in this unique, indigenous event that will connect us all to the local fights we face, like Tesoro's proposed oil by rail facility, with information about how to get involved. There will be a pop-up exhibit and video projections by The Natural History Museum in collaboration with Lummi Nation. Presenters and performers will thread together our hearts and minds because what moves us is also what motivates us.
