In the News:
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 in the Seattle Harbor as we'll gather in community to say, "Shell No!"
Speakers will include Sundance Chief Rueben George, Annie Leonard of Greenpeace USA, and a star lineup of local climate justice speakers including Jill Mangaliman of Got Green, and Sarra Tekola of Divest UW.
Join us on April 26th to tell Shell: Seattle draws the line!
