ShellNo protest in Portland while Obama visits Alaska

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Tue, 09/01/2015
 
President Obama is in Alaska today for a meeting with world leaders about climate change in the Arctic.
He was met by hundreds of protesters challenging his decision to allow Shell Oil to drill in the Arctic – a move they say will greatly increase climate change, and is likely to result in difficult-to-access oil spills.
In Portland, a rally and march was held mid-day today in solidarity with the Alaskan activists.
The group Shell No! organized the event, which included a funeral procession and die-in for the Arctic at the federal building in downtown Portland.
According to the protest organizers, Arctic drilling which will wreak havoc on the fragile ecosystems of the Arctic and bring us ever closer to surpassing the 2 degree threshold that scientists have warned will cause irreversible climate catastrophe and massive loss of life.
Here are some excerpts from the rally, recorded by KBOO’s Paul Roland.
 
The voices you heard included Graham Clumpner with Iraq Veterans Against the War, Carrie with Idle No More, and local climate activist Daphne Wysham
The organizers of today’s action, the Shellno Action Council, has made four demands of the Obama administration.
The group demands A rapid transition to renewable energy, the end of exploratory drilling in the Arctic, the Protection of indigenous peoples’ rights and communities, and Binding agreements at the 2015 U.N. Climate Change Conference that are on par with what science has shown is necessary for a livable future.

Totem Pole Journey coming to Longview, Portland and Hood River

Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 08/20/2015
Each of the past two years, Lummi Nation tribal members have carved and transported totem poles thousands of miles to raise public awareness and strengthen opposition to the export of fossil fuels from the west coast of the United States and Canada.
Starting this Friday, the Lummi House of Tears Carvers, led by Master Carver Jewell James, will embark on their third journey with a new totem pole, which will be a gift to the Northern Cheyenne of Montana.
Working in close association with other tribal governments, environmental organizations and the faith-based community, these efforts have helped shape the public debate and understanding of what is at risk with the proposed fossil fuel export facilities and their transport by rail, ship and pipelines.
Starting off in Vancouver, British Columbia on Friday and Saturday, the pole’s journey will take it to Longview, Washington on Sunday for an event and ceremony at St. Stephens Episcopal Church at 6 p.m.
It will arrive in Portland on Monday for a blessing ceremony at 5:30 p.m. at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church, 2408 Southeast Sixteenth Avenue.
The caravan will then stop in Hood River on Tuesday, August 25 at the Riverside community Church from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
KBOO’s Paul Roland spoke with Lummi Master Carver Jewell James.
