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!

Dearest Justin …

You know you’re jealous of Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau: He insisted on a 50% female cabinet, listens to climate science, and does yoga on the regular. He’s like the opposite of Trump, and he’s right next door!

But as handsome and cool as he is, Trudeau has a serious flaw: he supports Tar Sands pipelines – even though they violate Indigenous rights and make it impossible for Canada to meet its climate commitments.

Click here to send a letterSo this Valentine’s Day, we’re teaming up with friends at Stand.Earth and the Other 98% to send Trudeau a love letter telling him to stop supporting Tar Sands pipelines. Can you sign on too?

The back story:

For years now, Justin Trudeau has supported the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that would run through rural communities without the consent of local landowners. And within his first year in office, he approved two major pipelines – Line 3 and Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipelinewithout the consent of local First Nations.

That’s just wrong. The Tar Sands are one of Canada’s dirtiest secrets. Producing one barrel of Tar Sands oil creates up to 37% more emissions than conventionally-produced oil and gas. They’re a ticking climate bomb, and by supporting pipelines, Trudeau is playing with fire. Just last year, the Canadian Prime Minister said that “no country in the world would find 173 billion barrels of oil in the ground and leave them there.”

Canada and Trudeau say they’re different than Trump and America. We all want to believe Justin can change, but to do it, he needs to keep fossil fuels in the ground. And to do that he needs to stop these dirty Tar Sands Pipelines.

Trudeau is loved by progressives all over the world. But he needs to know that we’re not going to let him selfie his way out of his promises on climate and Indigenous rights.

Send a message to the Canadian Prime Minister and tell him to cancel his pipelines and to take real action on Canada’s dirty Tar Sands.
