Blaine Climate March

BUS TRANSPORT AND CARPOOLING FROM VANCOUVER AND SEATTLE AVAILABLE.

*We will act in solidarity with the historic People’s Climate March in New York.

*We will honor the International Treaty to Protect the Sacredness of the Salish Sea to be signed 9/22 by Coast Salish Nations.

*We will call for cross-border action by citizens and politicians to defend the Salish Sea from a juggernaut of new coal, oil and LNG export projects.

On September 20th, as world leaders gather for the UN climate summit in New York, Canadians and Americans, First Nations and Native American tribes, and all the diverse communities of the Salish Sea will gather at the Peace Arch to send a unified and clear message to world leaders, as well as to our own local elected officials: it is time for unprecedented action to defend the Salish Sea and our global climate from fossil fuel development.

We will reach out across the border, literally taking each other’s hands; share our struggles and aspirations for a livable planet; and pledge to take unified action to protect the climate and the ecosystems, economies, communities and cultures that cohabit the Salish Sea bioregion.

Join us to stand together with people from across the border and around the world to demand a rapid, dramatic and equitable transition to a clean energy future.
