We Must Stop Shell Oil

I’ve been in Vancouver for two days where I joined with Greenpeace activists, First Nations peoples, parents, grandparents, professors, students at an amazing 6-hour “Toast The Coast” rally on Jericho Beach to celebrate the pristine beauty of the Northwest coastline and to stop Big Oil from devastating it: Shell’s preparing to drill in Alaska, new pipelines are proposed to bring tar sand oil to the coast, more oil-carrying super tankers running up and down the coast. Remember Exxon Valdez?

A very diverse coalition has grown rapidly here and includes people of the Musqueum, Squamish and Tsleil’ Watuth Nations who live along the coast and whose livelihood depends on the health of that shoreline. These First Nations, together with local citizens, professors and retirees, have been unbelievably brave, putting their bodies and lives on the line by blocking tar sands expansion and pipelines in British Columbia…at least for now. They face enormous legal fees as the Enbridge and Kinder Morgan try to stop them. I came here to add my voice to theirs in opposing Artic oil, pipelines and increased super tanker traffic in this beautiful part of the world.
