Attend the Salish Sea Stands for Climate Action March!

by Katie Fleming on March 30, 2017 No comments

Join us for a rally and march on April 29th in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island in solidarity with the People’s Climate Movement Marches throughout the world. Plus the march will end at an electric vehicle and renewable energy fair!

The People’s Climate Movement and Mobilization is part of a larger strategy to push back on Trump’s agenda of climate denial and fossil fuel expansion, and show we support real climate solutions here in the San Juan Islands.

We need your energy, creativity, and leadership — to promote clean energy solutions in our islands and resist fossil fuel infrastructure projects. That’s our best chance of continuing to keep playing offense, even as we defend everything this administration wants to take away. Let’s mobilize!

We hope you’ll be part of it with us — and with the many partners and allies who are helping to make it all happen.

If we want to build the future we need, it will require us joining together to make change. See you on the 29th!

Text version:

Islanders are invited to take part in a countywide “Salish Sea Stands” day of action on MLK Day, Monday, January 16 against the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion to the United States. The Trans Mountain Pipeline, owned by Kinder Morgan, received approval from the Canadian government to proceed. The project will affect the Salish Sea by radically increasing the number of tankers transporting crude oil in our waters.

Events will be held at the following locations:

San Juan County Park Boat Launch, 12 p.m.

Odlin County Park on Lopez 11-12:30 p.m.

Shaw County Park, 12 p.m.

Eastsound Waterfront Day Park on Orcas, 11 a.m.

You can also join in on the inter-island ferry for a teach-in and letter writing opportunity starting on the 12:25 west bound sailing from Orcas.
