It's a big moment in Portland. Thirteen activists have suspended themselves from a bridge, blocking Shell's icebreaker from leaving Portland for the Arctic, as the end of the summer drilling window draws closer. This ship needed to have a giant hole fixed before Shell could drill -- and this delay gives President Obama a chance to end Arctic drilling before it is too late.
The President ignored his advisors when they said that any drilling in the Arctic carries a 75-percent risk of a major oil spill. He has even turned a blind eye to previous "Shell No!" rallies. The fight is far from over, though. People have shown they will not rest until the Arctic is protected from Big Oil companies like Shell.
Show your support for Portland, and tell President Obama drilling in the Arctic is not an option.
