No Pipelines!

Save the Date and Bring Your Plate
November 13, 2016 – 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Douglas County Main Library, 1409 NE Diamond Lake Blvd., Roseburgamericana-69

Unified in our opposition against the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline [PCGP], Landowners United, Pipeline Awareness Southern Oregon, and Rogue Climate will be hosting a casual and informational afternoon to update landowners and the public on current activities surrounding the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline and the Jordan Cove LNG Energy Projects. Both projects remain denied by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [FERC] and yet the State of Oregon and Douglas County Commissioners’ allow permits and permitting processes to continue in spite of the fact that without FERC approval there can be no project. It makes no sense!

There will be informational tabling by organizations involved in opposition efforts against the Pipeline and a panel discussion featuring speakers who can offer insights and answer questions about where we are today regarding Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake and Tsunami threats, Department of State Lands and Department of Environmental Quality Permits and the Douglas County Conditional Use Permit. Landowners continue to be pressured by land agents working for Veresen, Inc., the Canadian Company who now has the controlling interest in the PCGP. We know they are securing title reports and targeting landowners with liens against their properties. Offers are worded to suggest that signing incentives are separate from the main proposal but are instead included in the total easement deal.

Please join us on November 13th, for a good old fashioned community potluck – break bread with your neighbors and find out what’s next in protecting the privacy and property in your community. Bring your favorite dish to share, your own plates, utensils and beverage of choice. We will provide coffee, water and the latest news. Share your story, share your company!
