This Thursday, 9-26, DivestUW and Rising Tide Seattle present Northwest Fossil Fuels: Resistance From Alaska to Oregon — a discussion of the 20 proposed fossil fuel export projects and the building resistance to them.
More than just coal trains and their export terminals threaten to turn the Northwest into a fossil fuel corridor threatening our communities and our climate.
Join us for an evening panel discussion to explore the wider regional effort to turn the NW into a dirty fossil fuel corridor and the emerging regional direct action movement against these terminals.
In Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Alaska there are almost 20 proposed coal, oil and gas export terminals or terminal expansions. The combined carbon impact of these terminals is three times that of Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
But an increasingly powerful movement has been organizing against these terminals. If they can’t ship it they can’t sell it – and that means fossil fuels stay in the ground!
We will have panelists from struggles around the region including Portland Rising Tide, Vancouver (BC) Coast Salish Territories Rising Tide, Rising Tide Seattle, and Wild Idaho Rising Tide!
7 PM on Thursday 9-26 at the University Temple United Methodist Church, 1415 NE 43rd Street, Seattle, Washington 98105 – Across the street from UW.
Parking is available at the University of Washington Bookstore Parking Lot on 45th and 15th.
