Protestors Tell Shareholders NW Natural's LNG Plan "Stinks!"


-Portland, OR.- Protestors from Stumptown Earth First! sneak into shareholders meeting and disrupt with stink devices in protest of the company's investment in proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects slated for Oregon. NW Natural has been making greenwashing claims, including "foreign LNG is a green alternative to the already existing domestic gas." Protestors say "there is nothing green about LNG."

Activists with Earth First! declare that "This action is just the beginning of what's in store for this LNG proposal. We are here to defend the land, the rivers, and the natural habitats, and we will not stop until LNG is dropped!"
