Hello water protectors!
Community Meeting: Start Working Groups to Stop KM
We were inspired to see so much enthusiasm to stop KM in this town! In order to turn that energy into action, we are facilitating a community meeting at 7:00pm Monday, April 9th at CityStudio:742 Johnson Street.
Here's a link to the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/352340101918739/
The goal of this meeting is to set up Working Groups to take on different aspects of organizing.
For example, in our last meeting we collectively identified several needs, including:
- Political pressure (phone banks, letter campaigns, pressuring politicians)
- Direct actions aimed at local targets (subcontractors, government offices, banks, etc)
- Getting involved in ongoing trips to Burnaby
We are also very open to any other groups people may want to form or other ideas you may have.
Our vision is that each group will leave this meeting with a plan to continue to meet autonomously and organize action in their field. So, if you are ready to take concrete action against Kinder Morgan and looking for a way to get involved, please consider joining us.
We are supporting the incredible and ongoing “Kwekwecnewtxw – Protect the Inlet” initiative on Burnaby Mountain to resist the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project. There is an upcoming day of action on Burnaby Mountain taking place Saturday, April 7. Stay tuned for more updates via. email or on our facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/698454473877450 and at https://protecttheinlet.ca/
We encourage you to organize your own trip to Burnaby Mountain using our facebook group, or with this carpool tool: https://www.groupcarpool.com/t/mwx92z
Protect the Inlet is looking for folks to volunteer at the Watch House. If you are interested, sign up at https://protecttheinlet.ca/volunteer/
