Climate protesters to target Portland Art Museum on April 27

April 19, 2024

F Minus, 350 PDX, and Sunrise PDX will protest the Portland Art Museum’s ties to a fossil fuel lobbying firm at 3pm on Saturday, April 27, in Shemanski Park directly across from the museum. The protest follows an F Minus exposé of “double agent” lobbyists who simultaneously represent fossil fuel companies and pro-climate clients, including the firm of Gallatin Public Affairs’ simultaneous lobbying on behalf of PAM, Cascade Natural Gas, and the Williams Companies, whose pipelines carry one-third of the gas in America. Protestors will call on PAM to cut ties with this firm and also call on organizations to cut ties with firms who lobby for NW Natural.

Speakers at the protest will include youth climate activists, artists, and people personally impacted by Oregon’s 2020 wildfires, and the event will feature the unveiling of an oil derrick made from wood and other materials salvaged from these fires.
