Keep Nestlé Out of the Gorge Rally: 6-26-2012
We need to tell Governor Kitzhaber: Either you stand with Oregonians or you stand with Nestlé!
Stand in solidarity with a diverse coalition of groups and over 30,000 Oregonians who are demanding that Kitzhaber protect our water from a Nestlé 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 Nestlé’s damaging water bottling in Michigan.
- Jeff Cogan, Multnomah County Chair
- Sister Brigid Baumann, from Sisters of the Holy Names
- And locals from Cascade Locks and the Gorge who don’t want to have Nestlé bottling water in their backyard.
The event is brought to you by the Keep Nestlé 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.
