Help Amplify Today’s Action in Toronto!

28 Mar

Toronto action
Dear Allies,

As a prelude to our national day of action coming up this Saturday, allies
went around the Financial District of Toronto this morning to deliver a
message to Chevron investors State Street and Vanguard. We let them know
that we will hold them accountable for Chevron’s actions if they attempt
to trespass on sovereign Unist’ot’en land.

Video and photos are forthcoming on our website, but in the meantime you
can help amplify our message by sending an email to the following staff at
these two companies. The Vanguard office was particularly rude and the
receptionist actually pushed our letter out of the office with her foot.

Please write to them and let you them know you support the Unist’ot’en
right to Free Prior and Informed Consent regarding industrial activity on
their land and that if they do not want to lose a pile of money on a
pipeline that will never be build they should cancel Chevron’s Pacific
Trail Pipeline.

American oil giant Chevron wants to build a destructive pipeline across unceded indigenous territory to carry fracked gas to the coast, and export climate change to the world. We say NO. We do not need fracked gas, we do not want another pipeline and we will not stand by as colonial governments and greedy corporations push us over the climate catastrophe cliff edge.

Chevron is the new corporate face of the Pacific Trail Pipeline project, having recently become 50/50 partners with Apache to build a fracking gas pipeline across 500 kilometres of largely unceded land, from Summit Lake to LNG plants planned for Kitimat. On March 30th we will greet them with resistance across BC and around the world. As politicians put economic growth and industry interests ahead of carbon common sense and indigenous rights, it is up to us to take direct action to raise the cost of pushing ahead with the project, and raise the stakes in the PR battle. We encourage autonomous creative direct action against Chevron and any others involved in the development and financing of Pacific Trail Pipeline. Occupy offices, drop banners, demonstrate in city centres, lock-on at the pumps, subvert the Chevron brand, hand out leaflets… the choice is yours!

Everywhere they operate, Chevron exploits land and people for money, often through the use of force, and without taking responsibility for the consequences. Battles against environmental racism and illegal oil wars, movements for indigenous sovereignty and migrant justice – we amplify our resistance by uniting our struggles, so we are calling for solidarity actions and events against Chevron across Canada and around the world.
