“Yesterday, the government of British Columbia joined Indigenous peoples, community groups, cities, climate activists, and thousands of others in opposing the Kinder Morgan Trans-Mountain tar sands pipeline. Despite this, and despite their campaign promise to the contrary, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the federal government are proceeding with a review of the pipeline that ignores climate change, silences communities, and refuses to respect the rights of Indigenous peoples.”Aurore Fauret, 350.org

Next steps to enforce People’s Injunction, email by Aurore Fauret, 350.org, January 12, 2016

Friends,

Yesterday, the government of British Columbia joined Indigenous peoples, community groups, cities, climate activists, and thousands of others in opposing the Kinder Morgan Trans-Mountain tar sands pipeline.

Despite this, and despite their campaign promise to the contrary, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the federal government are proceeding with a review of the pipeline that ignores climate change, silences communities, and refuses to respect the rights of Indigenous peoples.

That’s why we’re gearing up to enforce a People’s InjunctionOver 2,000 people across Canada, like you, have pledged that if this government does not cancel or suspend the reviews of Energy East and the Kinder Morgan Trans-Mountain pipeline by January 15th, you will organize or join an action to demand an immediate stop to these reviews, starting on January 18th.

Here are some tools to help you start planning:

Onwards,
