Seattle vs Kinder Morgan: The fight for an oil-free Salish Sea

“It’s time to warrior up, Washington! We made a promise to protect our future generations.”
–Cedar George Parker, Tsleil-Waututh Nation

Join us for a day of mass action by land and sea on May 20 to protect our waters, our communities, and our climate from Kinder Morgan. The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion threatens to increase the transport of toxic tar sands oil through Washington waters by 700%, while trampling indigenous rights and destabilizing our global climate.

RSVP for details:

On land: 10am rally at Occidental Square, then march to the Seattle Waterfront.
On water: a flotilla of kayaks and canoes will launch from West Seattle and swarm Kinder Morgan’s terminal.

We need to act now! Kinder Morgan has until May 31 to decide the fate of this pipeline. First Nations-led resistance has already pushed them to the brink. Now is our chance to spread the resistance into Washington state.

Together, we will stop this pipeline as one Salish Sea, because solidarity knows no borders!

SHARE with your friends to keep the momentum going!
