On Sunday June 1st, the battle to halt the siting
of a Liquefied Natural Gas Pipeline through Oregon entered a new phase. a man
named Rick also known as Brokenfeather
began a 10 day Hunger Strike in front of the NW Natural Energy Company
Headquarters at 220 NW ist ave.
Nw natural is just one of several pipeline
proposals being considered by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. It is
working with Palomar Gas Transmission System on a plan that would install 500
miles of Oregon’s public and Private lands.
Brokenfeather has scheduled his hunger strike to
coincide with the Rose Festival in attempt to bring attention to the proposal
and to gain support in opposing any LNG
pipeline plan in Oregon.
Kboo reporter Linda Olson- Osterlund spoke with Nat
of the Earth Community Alliance about the Hunger Strike.
