Protesters Crash Megaload Company's Meeting



HILLSBORO, OR -- Protesters in Hillsboro interrupted a meeting Thursday at the headquarters of a moving company transporting a truckload of oil refinery equipment to a tar sands project in Canada.  About 30 protesters from Portland Rising Tide walked through the company's gates and into the meeting, where they blocked a projector screen, sang songs and left peacefully.  No one was cited or arrested.
 
The protesters have taken issue with Omega Morgan's involvement in hauling equipment for the tar sands project, which they claim will irreversibly damage the environment.
