Please support our continued climate work!
Over the last three weeks there have been seven actions against the tar sands megaloads resulting in 19 arrests. This included the blockade on December 16th in which sixteen people were arrested as two disabled vehicles were used to blockade and stop the controversial tar sands megaload near John Day, Oregon! All people are out of jail now but we need to continue to raise money to cover bail, legal expenses and everything else related to the megaload organizing thus far.
Over the course of 2013 Portland Rising Tide also took action in solidarity with the Unist'ot'en people opposing the Pacific Trails pipeline, organized the largest action to date against the fossil fuel terminals proposed for the NW on the Columbia river in July and shut down the Port of Vancouver in in solidarity with locked out workers and in opposition to the proposed 360,000 barrel per day oil terminal.
We are an all-volunteer group driven by a passion to build a climate justice movement that can confront the root causes of the climate crisis. Please support our work and allow us to build on our success in 2014!
