Calablast #23 – Cabaret evening for Pull Together against Kinder Morgan!
January 31, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - February 1, 2017 @ 1:00 am
PULL TOGETHER AGAINST KINDER MORGAN! – A night for Pull Together – a legal defense Fund and campaign setup to assist in the fight against Kinder Morgan.
Hosted by & Ft. Performances by: Ian Is Music w/ Special Guests TBA shortly.
The 23rd edition of Calablast Tuesday (monthly fundraising and local music showcase), is back and this time we’re currating a night of music in support of First Nations led legal challenges against the Kinder Morgan pipeline! Who knew stopping pipelines could be so much fun?
We stand as a community against Kinder Morgan with First Nations as they defend their territory and land rights in the courts! All proceeds will go directly to First Nations led legal challenges defending this coast and these communities! Check out Pull-Together.ca for more info! (Or if you can’t make it but you would like to donate or organize a Pull Together event in your own community.)
This event is being held on the unceded and occupied territory of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish people. We work in solidarity with these First Nations, each of these First nations has filed court cases opposing this tar sands pipeline.
This event is down a flight of stairs, and therefore is not wheelchair accessible. There will be alcohol present, nondrinkers are welcome.
