Do you care about the future of our planet?
Join the Resistance! Say ‘No’ to the Keystone XL pipeline!
The KXL pipeline is a looming environmental disaster, but with your help, we can turn it into just another corporate pipe dream.
Visit NoKXL.org, sign the Pledge of Resistance, and RSVP for the training.
WHEN: Sat. Oct. 26, 9:00am – 5:00 pm (lunch is provided)
WHERE: The Bridge United Methodist Church
5601 South Puget Sound Ave., Tacoma, WA 98409
The day opens with a workshop on Grand Strategy & Creative Tactics presented by Bill Moyer of the Backbone Campaign. The workshop is an interactive presentation on the strategic use of Artful Activism to build movement power to transform society.
The afternoon session is focused on planning for a peaceful and dignified sit-in at the US Federal Courthouse in Tacoma, in order to send the message to President Obama and his administration that they must reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
We will prepare a team of people who are willing to risk arrest, and a team to provide vital support who will NOT risk arrest. In particular, we must skill-up and fill the critical roles of jail support and police liaison, because without them we cannot hold a successful civil disobedience action.
Participation in the training is absolutely essential to making this action a success. Please RSVP as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations in any amount you can afford to help cover the cost of food, venue and guest presenter are encouraged and appreciated, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
