Oil Free Salish Sea Day in Anacortes

October 7, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

Saturday October 7th    11-3:30 pm
Start Point ~ March Point Park N Ride 8147 S March Point Rd, Anacortes, Wa 98221

Canoe Families, Kayaktivists, Bike Activists and ALL people who love the Salish Sea and believe that NOW is the time to end fossil fuel production and transport in OUR Salish Sea are invited to join us at March Point to rally..to sing..to pray..to educate ourselves about the human and environmental devastation fossil fuel brings to our land and water.

We only have one home that is our Salish Sea. Kinder Morgan’s Transmountain Pipeline would bring almost 1 million barrels of oil per day to our shores to be trafficked across our waters then processed at refineries such as this one at March Point. This would kill our Salish Sea after the oil spill! Kinder Morgan also plans on expanding the Puget Sound Pipeline to further increase the toxic refinery pollution coming out the refinery stacks here at March Point. The City of LaConner has one of the countries highest cancer rates in the country. We must transition to green energy sources soon to secure a future for our children that is free of giant floods, monsterous hurricanes and hundreds of forest fires. Climate disaster is now beginning and we need change now!
