Stop Kinder Morgan - No Consent, No Pipeline!

Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 12:00 PM
City Hall Vancouver

Join PIPE UP at this Rally and March on November 19th (Note that PIPE UP does not encourage people to do anything illegal, peaceful protest is how we are choosing to be involved)

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 is blocking a pipeline, to the West Coast.

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.

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 səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
