Anti-LNG meeting tonight

Opponents of proposed liquified natural gas pipelines through Southern Oregon gather tonight at Medford's library.

The event organized by the Sierra Club, Rogue Riverkeeper and Friends of Living Oregon Waters is at 7 p.m. at the Medford Branch Library, 205 S. Central Ave. It's open to the public.

The environmental organization is opposed to the Jordan Cove liquified natural gas terminal proposed at Coos Bay and a 220-mile pipeline that would run through parts of Jackson County on its way to Malin.

Tonight's meeting will explore potential impacts to Oregon rivers, forests, farms and communities, how the Sierra Club is working against the proposals and how the public can get involved, the group said.
