Call to Action

From July 16th-31st frontline resistance campaigns across the continent will be taking action simultaneously to stop pipelines and extreme energy projects. During these weeks of action, we are calling on people to join us in solidarity by organizing actions targeting the banks funding these pipeline projects, or by joining the frontlines and taking action directly with us.

Across Turtle Island, Indigenous people and frontline communities are leading the fight to stop oil and fracked-gas pipelines. These pipelines and all fossil fuel extraction endangers the communities they pass through, contaminate the air and water, contribute to global climate change and continue the colonization of native lands.

When resisting these projects, we take every legal route available -- and we also utilize direct action: placing our bodies and lives on the line. As our resistance has escalated, so have the tactics of our opponents: we face intimidation, surveillance and violence. We confront government entities that are growing inseparable from the fossil fuel industry. Still, we resist.

The pipeline projects we are fighting are all facing key moments and critical deadlines. If we are to stop these projects we must act now. It is with this backdrop that we are calling on you to rise up in solidarity with our frontline resistance. Join us from July 16th-31st as we #RiseTogether and take direct action to stop all pipelines and all extreme energy projects.
