Resisting Fossil Fuel Pipelines
June 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Climate organizers turned emergency shut-off valves on all 5 pipelines that carry tar sands oil into the United States. Now these activists, three support people, are facing multiple felony charges, with maximum sentences ranging from 10-81 years in prison! Additionally, one documentarian is facing multiple misdemeanor charges in Minnesota.
What can we learn from this direct action that shut down 15% of US crude oil imports for nearly a day? Our collective commitment to nonviolent civil disobedience is the most powerful force on the planet.
