Join the Wet’suwet’en Strong day of action!

Despite the COVID-19 crisis, TC Energy is still going ahead with construction of the Coastal GasLink pipeline, putting communities and their workers at even more risk.

We need all eyes on the Wet’suwet’en frontlines right now. Billionaire oil CEOs and industry lobbyists will see this crisis as an opportunity to push through whatever they can when the world is looking the other way.

That’s why on Monday, March 23rd, we’ll be flooding KKR’s inbox, phone lines, and twitter feeds with messages telling them — respect the rights of the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs and drop the risky Coastal GasLink pipeline immediately! KKR is currently one of the pipeline’s biggest financiers.

Will you take one minute right now and join the online day of action. Here are 3 things you can do:

  1. Email KKR with our easy message tool
  2. Call KKR at 1-888-593-5407 and follow the instructions. Talking points:
    1. I am calling to demand you respect Indigenous rights and the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs, and drop the risky Coastal GasLink pipeline immediately.
    2. The Coastal GasLink project would lock us into decades of increased fracked gas.
    3. Building Coastal GasLink would disregarding the lack of consent by Wet’suwet’en community and the impacts to climate, air, water.
    4. All pipeline construction poses risks to indigenous women by allowing man camps to be built along the route. The problems with missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada and the US are well documented
  3. Tweet at @KKR_Co and tell them to drop Coastal GasLink

Thanks again for taking action! You can also share this post, and graphic to spread the word!

    Constructing oil pipelines is not essential—especially when so much of the world is staying home. Stopping construction of more oil pipelines is what is essential if we are ever going to take on global anthropogenic climate change.

    No pipelines, stop the plans, stop constructions!

  3. Robert E Olson

    We don’t need more Damn oil, we need to respect the native hearitig. Stop the damn pipeline!

    To promote more fossil fuel at this moment?? Disaster capitalism is a good name for it. It is insane
    No matter how much $$ you think you can make on it, it’s insane.
    Wake up.

  5. Everardo Flores

    PLEASE STOP THE ALL OIL PIPE LINES, WE NO LONGER NEED THEM. WE NEED INSTEAD A HEALTHY PLANET! Thank you for listening.

  6. Mary Heiser

    No pipelines! No fossil fuels. You are destroying our only home!

  7. Katie Merrow

    Please stop and do the right thing! It is time now to use cleaner energy or it will be too late! Stop the greed!

  8. Melanie

    Please stop the pipeline.

    Pipelines Don’t Work

    I stand for you. I cannot donate at this time, but I have a computer and am willing to be of help in other ways. You are a strong and beautiful tribe; I admire you.

    your action, or inaction, will be judged by our grandchildren, your grandchildren. that our environment reacts to human intervention could never be more transparent than in our present pandemic… connecting A to B; simple science.

    How many ways have we had and do we continue to have to disrespect the native population? There is nothing to recommend this pipeline except corporate profit for the few who feel entitled to destroy the planet for the sake of the almighty dollar.
    A good economic model for the future would be diversification into renewable energy. Pipelines leak, they provide few jobs, and they promote the further delay of transitioning to sustainable energy.

  13. Jody RIchards

    Back away – let your workers go home. You stay home also! Your names will live in infamy when the history of these days is written. This is an unconscionable action, revealing your greed and lack of respect for the indigenous people and the earth. Please reconsider and don’t participate in this kind of Disaster Capitalism. Thank you for anything you can do to slow down and do the right thing here.

  14. Chattie

    Please stop the pipe line.

    No partisan political leaders have suffered enough shock. Both parties are attempting to squeeze the other to gain advantage in a time of crisis.
    It has become clear that Trump is incompetent & no one will wrestle control of the national crisis away from him. More congress members will have to die, not just their grandmothers, in order to convince them & remaining influential leaders to take control & lead the way forward.

  16. Jacqueline Ricks

    I think now is the time for all to be in a lock down mode.

  17. Joel Mofsenson

    My comment is it speaks for itself

  18. Donna Gilbert

    No to the coastal pipeline which affects women & communities!

  19. Rebecca Dart

    I am calling to demand you respect Indigenous rights and the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs, and drop the risky Coastal GasLink pipeline immediately. We should not be locked into decades of increased fracked gas. Building it would be completely disregarding the lack of consent by the Wet’suwet’en community and the impacts that will be had on the climate, air, and water. All pipeline construction poses risks to indigenous women by allowing man camps to be built along the route. The problems with missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada and the US are well documented.

  20. Cathleen Lindsay

    Please halt this pipeline. Especially now, we do noir need more oil.

  21. Christopher Blsir

    Building a pipeline during a pandemic is incredibly self-serving and tone deaf. It would seem that this being done in the hopes that people concerned are distracted and won’t raise valid objections.

  22. Dennis Sage

    This is a time that “social distancing” does not include turning our eyes away from the injustices that affects all living beings and their environments. In fact, the more we isolate alone with our humanity, the greater our inner voice speaks to us of our connections of a plural universe and our vow to remain human by facing what you wrongly think is the more powerful.

  23. Loretta J DeLong

    Stop the insanity. Save the climate.

  24. G Lee

    How will we protect our water from this Corona?

  25. Julia Farrar

    Quit fossil fuels. Your greed is ruining our planet.

  26. Tammy McDonald

    No pipelines. Let’s focus on green renewable fuels and energy.
