Break Free!

IMG_1317

Minutes ago, dozens of people began setting up a camp on the tracks near Tesoro and Shell’s March Point refineries near Anacortes. The group is setting up tents and building temporary structures; they say they intend to stay, blocking the flow of oil at the refineries for as long as possible. Organizer Ahmed Gaya says, “Break Free is about pressuring the system so we get the change we need, but it’s also about imagining an alternative. By setting up a village here, we’re embodying what we need to do as a community: to turn the systems that have devastated people and nature into places that can support us.”

Tomorrow is the Indigenous Day of Action, with inspiring speakers and musicians: arrive by 10:00am and park at the March Point Park & Ride–the march begins promptly at 11am. It’s a 3-mile walk, and the terrific program is almost 4 hours–bring comfortable shoes!

All weekend is also the People’s Climate Conference–with more amazing speakers and entertainment.

Please join us!
