In this era of a fossil fuel administration, building a stronger community of climate dissidents is critical.

    Petro Metro valve turners

    On October 11, 2016, five brave individuals turned the emergency shut off valves of the major tar sands pipelines in the USA, effectively shutting 15% of  the oil used in a day. Now these activists, three support people, are facing multiple felony charges, with maximum sentences ranging from 10-81 years in prison!  Additionally, one documentarian is facing multiple misdemeanor charges in Minnesota.
    But this isn’t just about criminal charges and the legal process. This is about how we stand up and take serious action in a time of denial, with the fossil fuel industry now not only controlling the government of the US, but actually being the government of the US. This is about how we not only support those who have taken risk already, it’s about how we find the courage within us to move to that next step ourselves.

    South Bellevue Valve Turners House Party

    Roger & I are hosting a house party to kick off the next wave of Climate Direct Action and help raise money for the legal fund for the tar sands Valve Turners.

    On October 11, 2016, five brave individuals turned the emergency shut off valves of the major tar sands pipelines in the USA, effectively shutting 15% of the oil used in a day. Now these activists, and three support people, are facing multiple felony charges, with maximum sentences ranging from 10-81 years in prison! Our son was a part of this direct action in Montana.

    But this isn’t just about criminal charges and the legal process. This is about how we stand up and take serious action in a time of denial, with the fossil fuel industry now not only controlling the government of the US, but actually being the government of the US. This is about how we not only support those who have taken risk already, it’s about how we find the courage within us to move to that next step ourselves.

    We need to raise another $50,000 (as of February 2016) to cover legal expenses, trial expenses, and the support we need to ensure these stories get told to elevate the conversation around why we need climate action now.

    So we hope you can join us on the 25th for some food, drink, conversation and some fun with FB and bolt cutters!
