BUSH ADMINISTRATION'S GALE NORTON IN PORTLAND
TOMORROW, SATURDAY APRIL 24TH
at the Oregon Zoo (4001 SW Canyon Road; accessible via the Max line or Highway 26)
SPREAD THE WORD!!
Cabinet level Interior Secretary Gale Norton is coming to town TOMORROW, Saturday April 24th to announce the Bush Administration's plan to 'conserve four imperiled species' on Threemile Canyon Farms. This is the same Administration that has actively worked to undermine the federal Endangered Species Act and which should be remembered for the massive salmon die off in the Klamath River two summers ago, and for the elimination of protections for old growth forest dependent species under the Northwest Forest Plan in March.
Threemile Canyon Farms is a 30,000 head industrial dairy farm in Boardman, Oregon that sits on the banks of the Columbia River. Industrial animal agriculture has a track record of polluting our air, waterways and groundwater. In addition, Threemile Canyon Farms has recently been accused of labor violations and the inhumane treatment of animals. Working to preserve a few species at this factory farm does not make this method of production sustainable or environmentally friendly.
Please join us TOMORROW - Saturday, April 24th at 9:30 AM to protest the Bush Administration's weakening of our key environmental laws and the green-washing of industrial animal agriculture!
When: Saturday, April 24th
Where: Oregon Zoo - Meet in parking lot by main entrance
Bring Signs, drums and noise-makers to let Secretary Norton know what you think!
