Protest over proposed pipeline

 A 232-mile pipeline that would run through the southwest corner of Oregon, channeling fracked natural gas across numerous rivers and streams before it’s shipped overseas, concerns its neighbors to the south, too, a group of Northern California Native youth asserts.

The Hoopa Valley Youth Council held a demonstration on the banks of the Trinity River on Saturday to demand that Gov. Jerry Brown request a report on what environmental impact the Pacific Connector Pipeline would have on the waters of the Upper Klamath River.

If it is installed as proposed, spanning the river just below the Klamath Lakes before winding up to a liquified natural gas terminal in Coos Bay, any harm done on site will be felt downstream of the Oregon border, the youth say.
