In a remarkable disruption of business as usual on Monday, 300+ of us from across Washington State descended on the State Capitol in Olympia to begin the Climate Countdown. At the same time, an indigenous-led encampment of dozens of people centered around four “tarpees”‘ (tarp-covered teepees) on the lawn in front of the Capitol, which had been set up in the pre-dawn hours to protest the construction of the new Puget Sound Energy Tacoma LNG facility and the new Trans Mountain pipeline, and to stop net pen fish farms. The encampment is still holding.
We are not done till the legislature meets our demands–that its members ban all new fossil fuel infrastructure in the state, and that they enact legislation to spur the State to 100% renewable energy within the next ten years.
Only 58 days left. Join us!
