Below you'll find sample information about the Stop Oil Trains Week of Action events. But, you can definitely make this page your own! Add your personal touch, and include anything else you think your guests need to know.

July 6 is the second anniversary of the tragic Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, oil train catastrophe that killed 47 people. The Stop Oil Trains week of action will call attention to the growing threat of oil trains across North America.

Calendar if events:
July 6th, 2015, The Night Shift

Where Meet in fron of Riverprk Square

Time 10:00 pm

Please join Spokane night owl activists in downtown Spokane for an led light panel display in front of Spokane landmark buildings located in the oil train blast zone. Light panels will be similar to those pictured on fb page Spokane Light Brigade.

Spokane and Cheney see 16-19 mile long bomb trains pass through our region each week. An explosion like what happened in Lac Megantic two years ago in downtown Spokane, or near Eastern Washington University, would be catastrophic .
Nearly 100 cities internationally will be doing events the week of July 6-12th, to tell world " NO MORE BOMB TRAINS." We can do better. Pictures of this event will be posted internationally

Door to Door Leafletting: Brownes Addition

A good section of historic Brownes Addition in Spokane is located within the oil train blast zone. (0.5 miles from railroad tracks). In case of an oil train explosion, that area would be evacuated, if not leveled. The loss of life and property could be devastating.

Please join concerned Spokane area citizens as we distribute leaflets aimed at raising awareness of the dangers of crude oil shipped by rail.

Art Build Making Yard Signs

Recycling donated campaign signs.. Make your own "Stop Oil Trains" stop sign. It's easy. we have lots of former campaign signs donated by local politicians and groups. With a little snipping, some red paint, and stenciled on letters , we could blanket Spokane with these signs. Picture of sign @ fb Spokane Rising Tide, if this site won't load.

Make one for yourself, 10 for your neighbors. They make great gifts for you climate denying relatives.

This may be a two day process, depending on how long it take the paint to dry.
