The Quinault Indian Nation is planning a march on Hoquiam City Hall next week to protest proposed crude oil businesses at the Port of Grays Harbor. Hoquiam Mayor Jasmine Dickhoff told the city council at their meeting earlier this week, “They’re going to have a demonstration about crude oil, on July 8th. [They’ll] arrive at 1:30 at our new levee. They’re taking out permits to close the streets so they can take that space.”
Levee St. will be closed between noon and 6 pm for the SHARED WATERS, SHARED VALUES March and Rally To Say “No” to crude oil in Grays Harbor!
A parade of tribal canoes, fishing boats, and other vessels will begin at 12:30 on Friday, July 8th at the Northwest end of Rennie Island and land at the 9th St. Dock in Hoquiam where they will join other protesters around 1:30
Quinault Indian Nation President Fawn R. Sharp will open the Rally and be followed by a few speakers before the 4-block March to city hall at 2:45 pm.
