KTVZ

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — Protesters are calling for unity and action against a proposed liquefied natural gas pipeline in Klamath Falls.

The Herald and News reports (https://is.gd/ukUjfZ ) that opponents of the Jordan Cove Energy Project demonstrated Saturday against the pipeline, chanting “water is life” and “you can’t drink oil.” A second protest was scheduled for Sunday.

Renee Frye organized the protest and says the pipeline poses a significant pollution threat because it will cross an estimated 400 waterways and 700 private properties

Featured protest speaker Walking Eagle Thom, chief and medicine man of the Karuk Tribe, says the action against the Jordan Cove project was inspired by ongoing protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota.
