Walk to Protect & Restore the Salish Sea- Lacey Stop

Start: Monday, September 23, 2019 1:00 PM

The people of our Salish Sea are rising like the tide to protect what we love and cherish as sacred, to stand together like the trees and lift each other up and the “each other” includes our grandchildren’s grandchildren, the orca and salmon people, the tree and bird people and all the other animal people of our Salish Sea. To stand in solidarity with Salish Sea tribes to ensure their treaty rights are honored and respected and for other nations to have their unceded territories and natural laws honored and respected.

Fracked gas is threatening our communities, our waters and our climate. Join us to say NO to fracked gas proposals including the LNG proposal in Tacoma and the Methanol Refinery proposal in Kalama.

The Department of Ecology can stop the World's Largest Methanol refinery from being built in Kalama THIS YEAR, and can take over the permitting process for the Tacoma LNG project to ensure more accurate environmental review, and better enforcement of existing laws.

Join us in calling on the Department of Ecology to protect our Salish Sea from Fracked gas!

This even is a stop on the 4 day walk along our Salish Sea in solidarity with the many Nations of our Salish Sea bio-region that are asking all of us to lift them up at this time, to begin our plans of restoration for our beloved Salish Sea bio-region. There is only one Salish Sea and it can be legally designated a Whale Sanctuary once we bring Tokitae (aka Lolita) home to her mother who still swims in our Southern Salish Sea and are both L-pod orcas. We walk to be free of Justin Trudeau/ Alberta's plan to bring nearly 1 million barrels of oil per day to the shores of our Salish Sea. To stand in solidarity and to ensure that the Puyallup Nation and Tacoma residents do not have the threat of an 8 million gallon Liquefied (un)-Natural (fracked) Gas (LNG) facility with a 3.5 mile blast zone located a half mile from their homes. So that our Salish Sea can be a place for all life to thrive once again and be free from the threats of Climate Change.
