Not Another Haiyan, Climate Justice Now! says
Fossil fueled climate catastrophes are increasing in frequency and size.
The PNW is becoming the nation’s growing exporter of Fossil Fuels. Nov 7th is the 2nd year anniversary of the world’s strongest storm to make land fall -- Typhoon Haiyan killed tens of thousands of people, displaced over 6 million and destroyed entire industries and ways of life.

As Seattleites, people of this land, we cannot remain silent.

Join us in a procession from Beacon Hill to commemorate the Filipino people and people around the world struck by man made climate chaos and help us revoke the social license fossil fuel industries think they have to use our region to ramp up the destruction of our people and planet.
In 2013 Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines. Instead of providing support and relief to the victims of this climate disaster the United States ramped up it's imperialist military presence. At the same time new pushes to export coal, oil and gas through the Northwest continue to drive the climate crisis.

We demand an end to fossil fuel exports driving these disasters and the systems of imperialism, capitalism and CO2lonialism that created this and other disasters,

Peoples in the Global South bear the least responsibility for the climate crisis, but every year they face more and more of its devastating impacts. Meanwhile U.S. Corporations plan to extract the dirtiest coal and oil and ship it overseas to the Global South, where much of it will power further extractive neo-colonial land grabs and devastation.

Since 2013 the U.S. has dramatically expanded its fossil fuel production. The Pacific Northwest is poised to become a dirty-energy superhighway to export Climate Chaos to the world. Oil and Coal trains threaten local rail-line, low-income and immigrant communities with health risks, spills and explosions, while delivering devastating blows to the climate. The Pacific Northwest can be a thin green line against this new form of CO2lonialism.

U.S. Imperialism, fossil fuel exports, environmental injustice and climate chaos are all part of the same system. We need System Change not Climate Change!

Meet at 11 AM at the Beacon Hill Food Forest, Wear Blue.
