We need to follow up the Paris COP21 talks with a strong call to get serious and break free from this perilous path we’re on, and we can’t afford to go down that path any more. It’s time to turn the ship around and head for a livable future, and this is a time to make the point with our bodies in the streets, to shift power from the fossil fuel industry towards grassroots groups like OCA who are working toward a great economic and energy transformation of our society.
The Shell and Tesoro refineries near Anacortes, WA are the largest source of carbon pollution in the Northwest and refine 47% of all the gas and diesel consumed in the region; this system must change—within years, not decades. Join us the weekend of May 13-15 as we take mass action to Break Free from Big Oil and hasten a just transition to 100% renewable energy.
In order to arrange appropriate transportation and accommodation, we need your prompt response as to whether/how/when you would like to join us for this event, so we can minimize our carbon footprint and make it a good experience for all. We expect to be picking up folks in Port Angeles, Sequim, and Port Townsend on the way to Anacortes. Transportation might be by carpools, vans, or even buses.
PLEASE fill out this survey so we can arrange logistics and stay in touch:
