KEEP NESTLE OUT OF THE GORGE Rally
Terry Shrunk Plaza (S.W. Fourth and Madison, downtown Portland)
4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Stand in solidarity with a diverse coalition of groups and over 30,000 Oregonians who are demanding that Governor Kitzhaber protect our water from a Nestle water bottling plant in the scenic Columbia River Gorge. Join us for activities for all ages, music, special guest speakers, to add your own message to our banner and much more.
Guest speakers include:
Terry Swier, an activist involved with a group famous for fighting Nestle's damaging water bottling in Michigan;
Jeff Cogen, Multnomah County Chair;
Sister Brigid Baumann, a Sister of Sisters of the Holy Names;
and other locals from Cascade Locks and the Gorge who don't want Nestle bottling water in their backyard.
The event is brought to you by the Keep Nestle Out of the Gorge Coalition, including Food & Water Watch, BARK, Sierra Club, Oregon AFSCME, Occupy Portland, Sisters of the Holy Names, Resources for Health, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Environment Oregon, Oregon Wild and others.
