Paddle Zenith Out of Portland

On Sunday, June 11, join a land and water action at Cathedral Park in Portland to demonstrate our community’s resistance to harmful and dangerous fossil fuels. It’s time to end the era of fossil fuels! Portland is joining organizations and activists across the country to mobilize against local and national fossil fuel development. Join XR, 350pdx, Mosquito Fleet, and dozens of local groups on June 11th to rally against Zenith and the Critical Energy Infrastructure (CEI) Hub and call out President Biden for breaking his climate policies. We’ll start with a kayaktavism training in the morning, then hop in our kayaks and hit the river to stand up to Zenith! Not up for kayaking? We’ve got you covered! We’ll have a few walk-on party boats and ways to participate on land, including making some art for the cause.
