A youth-led protest against fossil fuels biked from Eugene’s Skinner Butte Park to the Northwest Natural office, where demonstrators made speeches condemning the natural gas provider and performed a die-in protest on its lawn Friday.
Two protesters, ages 19 and 21, were arrested for allegedly climbing over the Northwest Natural fence and were charged with trespassing, according to Eugene Police.
