Walk to Protect & Restore the Salish Sea – Lacey Stop, TIME CHANGE, STARTING AT 1:30-1:45

September 23, 2019 - 1:30 PM
Department of Ecology Headquarters
300 Desmond Drive SE, Lacey

TIME HAS CHANGED! The walkers are slightly delayed this morning and will now arrive in Lacey closer to 1:30 PM.  The event will begin between 1:30-1:45 PM, instead of 1:00 PM.  Join us in calling on the Department of Ecology to protect our Salish Sea from Fracked gas! Facebook event page.  RSVP here.

The people of our Salish Sea are rising like the tide to protect what we love and cherish as sacred. Join us as we 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.

We are rising to stop Fracked Gas proposals, which threaten our communities, our waters and our climate. The World’s Largest Fracked Gas to Methanol Refinery, proposed in Kalama, would become our state’s largest climate polluter by 2025, endanger local residents with high risk of explosion and harmful pollutants, and open the floodgates for toxic fracked gas infrastructure across the Pacific Northwest. Puget Sound Energy’s 14-story tall fracked gas tank is being constructed at the Port of Tacoma on Puyallup land, despite the Tribe’s opposition, and without all its permits.  The Department of Ecology can stop both of these projects.

This event is a stop on the 4 day walk along our Salish Sea in solidarity with the many Indigenous 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.
