We Stand with Standing Rock! Emergency IntersAction!

February 11, 2017- 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

WE STAND WITH STANDING ROCK! Emergency IntersACTION

As we continue to organize against Trudeau’s approval of the Kinder Morgan pipeline, we also need to respond to an urgent call to action from those on the frontlines in Standing Rock fighting against the Dakota Access pipeline.

Trump has already called for the pipeline to be built, and there are significant efforts underway to force the granting of the final easement to allow the pipeline drilling to be completed without an Environmental Impact Statement.

Police also continue to harass and attack water protectors, with over 70 recently arrested and charged with “rioting” and other offences for setting up another camp to oppose the pipeline.

There has been a call for solidarity actions, which Climate Convergence is responding to by organizing an Emergency IntersAction at Georgia and Howe in downtown Vancouver. This is a very visible intersection where the main Vancouver branch of the TD Bank is located – one of the major investors in the Dakota Access pipeline.

We ask everyone to join us in standing in solidarity with indigenous nations asserting their right to self-determination and defending everyone from these unnecessary and dangerous projects which are literally destroying the planet.

We Stand with Standing Rock!
Mni Wiconi – Water is Sacred!
No Pipelines on Stolen Native Lands!
No to Dakota Access, Kinder Morgan, Line 3 and Keystone XL Pipelines!

We acknowledge we are on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the Coast Sallish peoples: the mi ce:p kʷətxʷiləm (Tsleil-Waututh), Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.

What is an IntersAction?
It’s an action where we flood an intersection on all sides with people crossing (on the light) with signs and banners without stopping the flow of traffic. This way we can be seen by and engage with the most people.
