Dear Friends,

Right now, I am standing arm in arm with thousands of people who have joined together for a historic stand in Metro Vancouver to stop the Kinder Morgan tar sands pipeline. We are here for the Kwekwecnewtxw #ProtecttheInlet mobilization.

For years, I have stood side by side with people from all across the country to oppose this devastating project and it has all built up to this monumental moment. You can follow along live by tuning in to the Protect the Inlet website.

As Kinder Morgan moves forward with its plans to begin construction on unceded Coast Salish territories in BC, Indigenous leaders are doubling down with bold and beautiful resistance. Just today, Indigenous spiritual leaders announced plans to build a Watch House at the terminal point for Kinder Morgan as a site of ceremony and resilient opposition to the pipeline and tanker project. Thousands of people are here, with so many having travelled long distances to support these courageous leaders.

As inspiring as it is to be here, we are up against a massive project and it will take more than one day to mobilize in a big enough way to stop it once and for all. Sign up here if you want to join the action.

That’s why there are plans for upcoming civil disobedience actions in Metro Vancouver starting next week -- if you can be there, we’d love for you to sign up. If you can’t, the First Nations leaders on the frontline could use your support with raising funds for the ongoing resistance to stop Kinder Morgan -- click here to donate.

It’s an honour to be here today. Our movement is massive and unstoppable.

Let’s stop Kinder Morgan,

Atiya
