Stop Kinder Morgan: No Consent No Pipeline
November 19, 2016- 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Prime Minister Trudeau’s decision on Kinder Morgan is fast approaching. Now more than ever we need a show of force to show that – no matter his choice – this region will do whatever it takes to stop this pipeline. We need to bring the spirit of Standing Rock, where Indigenous-led grassroots opposition stopped a pipeline, to the West Coast.
RALLY AND MARCH
We will start with a brief rally at City Hall followed by a march across the Cambie Street Bridge and end at Library Square with speakers and music. This will be a family friendly event with The Peace Bearers marshalling the march. Further details addressing accessibility are coming soon.
TAKE THE PLEDGE
We’re launching a “Take the Pledge” campaign to prepare for escalating actions in the event Trudeau’s cabinet approves the Kinder Morgan pipeline at the end of December. People will be able to sign the pledge and commit to supporting whatever action is necessary to stop the pipeline including peaceful civil disobedience. On November 19th we will conduct a mass public pledge to demonstrate to cabinet the scale of opposition they are facing if they attempt to move forward with Kinder Morgan. If Trudeau wants Clayoquot Sound 2.0 in the middle of Metro Vancouver – he’ll get it.
This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the Coast Salish peoples: the mi ce:p kʷətxʷiləm (Tsleil-Waututh), Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
More details coming soon…
