President Obama is in Alaska today for a meeting with world leaders about climate change in the Arctic.
He was met by hundreds of protesters challenging his decision to allow Shell Oil to drill in the Arctic – a move they say will greatly increase climate change, and is likely to result in difficult-to-access oil spills.
In Portland, a rally and march was held mid-day today in solidarity with the Alaskan activists.
The group Shell No! organized the event, which included a funeral procession and die-in for the Arctic at the federal building in downtown Portland. 9:07 minutes (12.52 MB)

Each of the past two years, Lummi Nation tribal members have carved and transported totem poles thousands of miles to raise public awareness and strengthen opposition to the export of fossil fuels from the west coast of the United States and Canada.
Starting this Friday, the Lummi House of Tears Carvers, led by Master Carver Jewell James, will embark on their third journey with a new totem pole, which will be a gift to the Northern Cheyenne of Montana.
Working in close association with other tribal governments, environmental organizations and the faith-based community, these efforts have helped shape the public debate and understanding of what is at risk with the proposed fossil fuel export facilities and their transport by rail, ship and pipelines. 11:20 minutes (10.38 MB)
