Stand with the Squamish against Kinder Morgan - pop-up rally Monday morning downtown

This Monday, Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) are back in court, fighting Kinder Morgan on a different front. This time, they’re challenging the B.C. government’s approval of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion in the B.C. Supreme Court.

Are you able to join a pop-up rally Monday morning downtown?

“The provincial government failed in its duty to adequately consult Squamish Nation on a project that threatens our land rights and could result in an environmental disaster,” said Chief Ian Campbell. “A marine spill could be catastrophic for the Squamish people. The government granted the certificate without enough information about how the bitumen could be cleaned up when a spill occurs in the Burrard Inlet or in the Salish Sea.”

For the Squamish Nation, it’s sink or swim. Let’s show the Squamish people — and the world — that they are standing together with passionate and committed people who will do whatever it takes to stop this pipeline. Join Chief Ian Campbell and your fellow coast protectors for a rally on Monday and make a noise in support of Indigenous justice.

As part of the Pull Together campaign, the Squamish are standing with other First Nations to protect us all from the devastating climate impacts of a tar sands pipeline expansion through the Salish Sea. Thousands of you have organized, donated, and set up online fundraisers to raise $59980k for the legal challenges. Thanks to you, our goal — $625k — is in sight.

We’re in awe of the power of this movement. You are fighting for what you love on the streets, on the water, and in your communities.  Let’s bring that energy and support to launch the Squamish on their week of BC Supreme Court hearings. Moments like this are not only a chance to show the world we care — they’re a way to lift our spirits, build friendships, and keep the fire burning strong. When we see what incredible people make up this movement, we know that — despite the odds — we can win.

Huge gratitude for all that you do,

The Pull Together team
