On April 26th, Seattleites will rally together to take a stand against dirty fossil fuel projects in the Pacific Northwest and everywhere.Shell sees climate change as a gateway to new profits. This is exactly the type of long-term, dirty fossil fuels project—like oil trains and coal exports—that can’t go forward if we hope to stop the worst effects of climate change and leave a real legacy for future generations.In January, it became public that the Port of Seattle agreed to house Shell’s Arctic drilling fleet this spring. But we’re showing Shell it sure made a mistake by choosing Seattle as the home base for its Arctic destroyers! The drilling equipment is on its way to Seattle right now, and it will sit i…n the Seattle Harbor as we’ll gather in community to say, “Shell No!”
Speakers will include Katrina Pestano of Bayan, Precious Butiu of Gabriela Seattle, Sarra Tekola of Divest – UW, Jill Mangaliman of Got Green, Annie Leonard of Greenpeace USA, Sundance Chief Rueben George, Amy George, a Tsleil-Waututh Nation elder, Hereditary Chief Phil Lane Jr. and Aji and Adonis Piper with Plant for the Planet.
Join us on April 26th to tell Shell: Seattle draws the line!
This event is hosted by: 350 Seattle, Alaska Wilderness League, Bayan, Backbone Campaign, Climate Solutions, Coalition for Port Accountability, Greenpeace, Plant-for-the-Planet, Rising Tide Seattle and the Sierra Club – Washington State Chapter
