Gabriel Saloman and Burnaby Residents Opposing Kinder Morgan Expansion: People’s Procession & Rally Against the Pipelines

April 12, 2014

People's Procession FlyerCALL TO ACTION!

BROKE-Burnaby Residents Opposing Kinder Morgan Expansion is organizing a People’s Procession & Rally Against the Pipelines. We need your help to mobilize thousands of people to come out on Saturday April 12 to show their support.

The People’s Procession will follow the existing and proposed oil and gas pipelines, which cut across the City of Burnaby. The procession will have speeches, media spectacles and performances along the walk.

The goal of the procession is to create a family-friendly space to demonstrate against the Kinder Morgan expansion, increase public awareness of issues associated with this expansion, and bring into visibility the spaces through which the existing and proposed pipelines travel, which include residential neighbourhoods and spaces in the vicinity of schools, parks and other community facilities.

The Procession will culminate in a large rally near Westridge Park. The rally will be followed by a procession to the Westridge Marine Terminal, where a final huge performative action will take place, involving speeches by leading environmentalists, youth leaders and music.

The People’s Procession & Rally will be a major public event bringing together a diverse array of people opposed to the Kinder Morgan expansion. To make this as powerful a statement as possible WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are asking you to join us and help to organize this major event in the Lower Mainland.

Please contact us if you are interested and able to support us with:

  • Tabling
  • Speakers & Live Entertainment
  • Food & Refreshments
  • Arranging for infrastructure (PA system, stage, etc)
  • Outreach (to communities, other concerned groups, media, etc.)
  • Promotions (fliers, web, etc.)

If you aren’t able to take on a collaborative role, we are also asking for your group to endorse and promote our event and to please show up with a creative and artistic show of solidarity and resistance!

We are still in the process of determining the exact route and schedule of the event, but we ask that you save the date and spread the word! (See poster attached)
