Anti-LNG Groups Bristle At Law Enforcement Scrutiny

LNG protest in Salem, 2016.

The arguments over the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas plant (LNG) and pipeline are hot.  No surprise, given the plans for the export terminal near North Bend and the 200-mile-plus pipeline running to it. 

But it was a bit of a surprise when a British journalism organization revealed that LNG opponents have been monitored by law enforcement agencies.  The Coos County Sheriff's Office says it's only collecting items before the public, like on social media. 

But groups like Southern Oregon Rising Tide and Rogue Climate are not happy about it. 

Holly Mills from SORT and Allie Rosenbluth from Rogue Climate visit.
