March & Rally Pledge of Resistance

This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
 Join us Saturday November 19th at noon at Vancouver's City Hall to raise our voices against Kinder Morgan.

Everything has changed since last week and we have a real opportunity to stop Kinder Morgan's pipeline and tanker project by showing the depth of opposition to it here in BC.

Grand Chief Stewart Phillip will lead us all in a pledge to resist the pipeline and the Prime Minister will hear our voices. #StopKM #NoTankers

We are in solidarity with Indigenous water protectors at Standing Rock as they struggle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
