Streams of Justice together with Salal + Cedar and a multitude of others calls people of faith to join us in demonstrating solidarity with Indigenous land defenders and leaders, resisting the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion on the unceded territories upon which we live, work, organize, gather, and worship. This is in response to the explicit call of Indigenous leaders at Kwekwecnewtxw (the Watch House) as well as our resistance to the colonial-capitalist project embodied by Kinder Morgan.
We especially call others in the Christian tradition to show up as part of committed decolonization, response to the calls of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and dedicated allyship to Indigenous struggles for sovereignty.
THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 28 – RSVP & SHARE ON FACEBOOK
REGISTER HERE for updates and reminders about this action, sent by Streams of Justice.
Spiritual leaders of the Watch House and members of Tsleil Waututh have made a call to faith leaders and people of faith and spirit to stand with them in prayerful opposition to the Kinder Morgan Transmountain pipeline expansion on their traditional territory. This is a call to active reconciliation work.
Arrive: 8 AM for marshal trainings and a soft start at the soccer field below the Watch House at 8505 Forest Grove Dr.
Once we are assembled we will process together to the Watch House and then to the gates of the Kinder Morgan Tank facility where people will have the opportunity to place tangible signs of their prayers—like rosaries, prayer cards, tobacco ties etc on the fence (without risk of arrest). We will hear prayers from various faith traditions and some people will take bold action.
Wearing signs or clothing traditional for your faith is appropriate and welcome. Dress for the weather and bring your own snacks and water. The day may go on as late as 4PM but you are invited to stay for what-ever length of time you can manage.
This is a child and family friendly event.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if your mobility is limited in a way that prevents you from moving 300 metres, (some of that distance over uneven ground).
