Northern Olympic Peninsula supports Pull Together

North Olympic Orca Pod performs at the Elwha Klallam Heritage Center to raise funding for Pull Together.

Fundraising events last week to support the work of Pull Together against the Kinder Morgan Pipeline have brought in over $6000 in contributions from residents of the North Olympic Peninsula!  Way to go!

    Subject: New video! Kinder Morgan Construction & Know Your Rights Webcast

    We all have a lot of questions about what will happen with Kinder Morgan’s Transmountain pipeline in September, so in concert with our friends at Stand.Earth we put together a webcast! You can watch it (and share with your friends!) here:
    http://www.coastprotectors.ca/km_construction_know_your_rights_webinar

    The new BC government recently announced that without five or the eight remaining permits related to First Nations and Indigenous consultation being fulfilled, construction cannot start [1].

    But according to the September construction schedule they have filed with the National Energy Board (NEB), Kinder Morgan plans to:

    • Work on the oil tanker loading facility on Burrard Inlet
    • Start expanding their Burnaby Tank Farm
    • Begin tunneling under Burnaby Mountain
    • Construct equipment and supply depots along the entire route of the pipeline

    The situation is changing every day – get the latest details from the webinar: http://www.coastprotectors.ca/km_construction_know_your_rights_webinar

    For more events like these, please become a Coast Protectors monthly ally: www.CoastProtectors.ca/donate_monthly. If donating monthly isn’t for you, consider a one time gift of $10, $25, $50 – whatever you can afford.

    Even $10 a month means the world to our ability to work to stop Kinder Morgan and fight climate chaos. Together, we are many, we are strong – and we will stop Kinder Morgan.

    In solidarity,
