Aberdeen DEIS hearing and rally- pictures and media links

Hundreds listen to Rally speakers

King 5 – “Critics of all ages sound off on oil trains”  - video

Fawn Sharp and Quinault drummers 

The Daily World – “Officials hear overwhelming opposition to crude terminals”


 Aberdeen City Councilman Alan Richrod discusses oil threat

The Daily World – “Rally riles oil denouncers amid public hearing”

 Hundreds Rally against crude oil on the Harbor

KXRO News Radio – “Rally against oil at draft EIS public hearing”                            

                                                               Returning to hearing session

Scoping specifically asked Ecology to study the impacts along the rail line throughout the state, but the DRAFT EIS totally ignores everything outside of 59 miles of Aberdeen.    The Department of Ecology and the City of Hoquiam do not have the right to sacrifice other communities for the benefit of special interests. BNSF averages one non-yard accident per million miles.  On that basis, we conclude these terminals will lead to 44 non-yard accidents in 20 years.  Serious accidents are guaranteed.
          The stench created by oil was also completely unaddressed, even though it can have major impacts on the community's health and economic viability.

** more media links will be added as we collect them

h/t to RD Grunbaum and Zoltan Grossman for pics,  WEC for links, and Don Steinke for commentary!!
