COASTAL GASLINK INJUNCTION GRANTED! NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND WITH THE UNIST’OT’EN!

Judge grants company right to force access across Wedzin Kwah.

Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs & Clan Members on the Bridge over the Wedzin Kwah (Morice River)

In an outrageous display of colonial arrogance Justice Marguerite Church has ruled that TransCanada/ Coastal GasLinkcan start site work preparation for its fracked gas pipeline on Unist’ot’en/ Wet’suwet’en territory as early as this Monday (Dec. 17).

Church also ruled today (Friday) that the checkpoint gate on the Wedzin Kwah (Morice River) Bridge must come down within 72 hours. That will be 3:30 pm Dec. 17.

This interim injunction against the Unist’ot’enwill remain in force until a judgement is rendered on a interlocutary injunction (a further interim measure); a date for that hearing is to take place no later than May 1, 2019.

The Unist’ot’en can serve an application response by January 31, 2019. To assist with legal costs please donate HERE.

Wow–That was Fast !

YESTERDAY I sent an “Action Alert” asking for you help getting NWPR to play “Climate Connections”, a daily 90-second radio program on climate change.
TODAY I got a phone call from NWPR’s Gillian Coldsnow, who heard through the grapevine that we were working with the Tri-Cities group on this issue.
The GOOD NEWS is that NWPB has decided to add TWO full-length programs about climate change and the environment to their regular list of shows:  Climate One, a weekly 50 minute show and Living on Earth, a weekly 60 minute show.  Both shows will start sometime in January.  So, instead of 10 1/2 minutes of weekly programming, there will be almost two hours.  How great is that?
I would encourage you to either call, e-mail, or consider a donation to NWPB.  They are truly being responsive to our local requests!

Let’s do our part right here in Wenatchee

 

 

With music, climate carols, chalking, signs & symbols our next action in Wenatchee will be at Chase Bank on the corners of Orondo & Mission – Friday, Dec. 14th 11:30-1P.  Join the fun for as little or as long as you want.  It’s a wonderful thing to stand for the earth right here in our town and this is a great way to do it!

From Alec Connon of 350Seattle:

What will it take for JPMorgan Chase to stop funding TransCanada? For years, TransCanada has fought tooth-and-nail to build the Keystone XL pipeline, against the wishes of courts, tribes, climate scientists, and local farmers. Now they’re also trying to force a huge new LNG pipeline through the unceded territory of the Unis’to’ten — without consent or permission.

JPMorgan Chase is the largest funder of TransCanada in the United States. Later this month, the bank will almost certainly renew a massive $1.5 billion loan to that planet-wrecking, human rights-abusing corporation ― money that TransCanada needs to build its new pipelines.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: funding climate disaster will not be tolerated. To make sure they get this message, we’ll be hosting a major action at Chase…very soon.

 


Friday, Nov. 30th @ Chase in Wenatchee!

Join us Friday, November 30th 11:30A-1P – any or all of the time.  We’ll be at Chase Bank in Wenatchee, corner of Orondo & Mission.  They are about to renew another $1 Billion to continue tar sands oil extraction!  We’ll have chalk, signs and music!
