Hands Across the Sands: Commemorate the Gulf Oil Spill (Seattle)

Saturday, May 17th, 11:15 am - 1:00 pm, May 17th 2014
Say NO to dirty fuels and YES to clean energy!

 

On Saturday, May 17, join communities around the country to ask the president and local officials to reject the Keystone XL pipeline, coal trains and coal export, offshore drilling, and other dirty fuel projects that threaten our communities, harm fish and wildlife and destabilize our climate.

 

We will plan to meet at Golden Gardens Park near Ballard and will set up on the beach near the Park Beach Bathhouse.

 

Questions can be directed to the event organizer at: (206) 378-0114x328 or you can email me at: Graham.Taylor@sierraclub.org

 

This National Day of Action is being jointly organized by the Sierra Club, Tar Sands Coalition and Hands Across the Sand / Hands Across the Land. Hands, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and the impact of other forms of extreme energy.

 

We invite activists across the nation to organize rallies, marches, and vigils that call on the president to reject KXL and other tar sands pipelines, while at the same time asking our state and local leaders to say no to the dirty fossil fuel projects that endanger our local communities. Whether it's Arctic drilling, mountaintop removal, dangerous tar sands pipelines, fracking, exporting liquid natural gas, or shipping crude by rail through our hometowns, we all have reason to be concerned -- for the health of our families, and the health of the planet.
