*Demonstration Against Proposed LNG Development at NW Natural Offices*
220 NW 2nd Ave in Portland
Thursday, May 22nd @ 1pm

Tell NW Natural Shareholders that LNG is a bad investment!

Stumptown Earth First! will be joining community members to let the shareholders of
NW Natural know just how bad of an idea it is to invest in a non-renewable
resource project.

There have had handfuls of great successes in the recent weeks
-- new city resolutions passed, a courtroom victory announcing
the constitutionality of our referendum efforts in Clatsop
County, a successful PDX LNG Teach-in, and an Oregon Dept. Of Energy
report finding that there is no need for LNG in Oregon...the list goes on.

More and more folks are learning about LNG and all the dangers it
represents to our environment, economy and our security. Let's
seize this opportunity to show PDXers and NW Natural shareholders
that we mean business! This Thursday NW Natural shareholders will be
having their annual meeting and we will be there to show them
that the communities being impacted by their investment in LNG
are organized, motivated and oppose these projects!

Come to NW Natural's offices for our 1pm rally -- bring your signs,
tractors, kids, neighbors, anti-LNG shirts & buttons and let's tell our
utility's shareholders that LNG is a BAD INVESTMENT!

Showing NW Natural shareholders that they are making an investment that the
public is outraged about will have a great impact on NW Natural's public
image and will raise concern in the minds of its shareholders. This is a
great opportunity to show NW Natural that they will not build these
pipelines without a fight!
