Planning to Walk 4 the Salish Sea? Register Here!
The world is in ecological and social crisis. Now is the time to walk the talk on climate change, Indigenous rights and local democracy – before it’s too late. We’re calling on defenders of this coast, its people, and the climate and our local democracy to join us on the Walk 4 the Salish Sea! – a four day march against Tar Sands, Kinder Morgan and all fossil fuel expansion in the absence of social licence, Indigenous consent, and ecological balance. From May 25th-28th, we will march from Songhees territory in Victoria to the Kinder Morgan terminal on Tsleil-Waututh territory in Burnaby to show our support for and solidarity with the 22 municipalities, 59 First Nations and hundreds of thousands of British Columbians who oppose the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain expansion. The mobilization will include large marine wildlife puppets, roaming bank actions, evening programs, info workshops, ceremony, reconciliation/talking circles, a rally aboard BC Ferries, and nightly entertainment. The Walk will end with a Freedom Festival featuring mass civil-disobedience teach-ins right at the gates of the Kinder-Morgan Terminal. Accommodations and communal dinners will be provided for registered participants. Allies are encouraged to make the entire journey or to join for any portion of the walk they can. Participants are welcome to walk, run, bike, roller-blade, skateboard, paddle or use wheelchairs – any human-powered, ecologically-sound mode of transportation is welcome. Are you ready to WALK?
