Paddle In Seattle ~ Help Stop The Rig says

Shell's arctic oil drilling rig, the Polar Pioneer, could try to leave any day now on it's way to Alaska and we need you to be ready to head down to West Seattle in whatever time you can make it when the alert goes out.

We will let you know as soon as this happens so please be on the watch out, sign up for text and email alerts (details below), and share widely on FB and to all your networks, not just in Seattle but all over the region and the country.

On the day of attempted departure we will hold a mass peaceful event to prevent the rig from leaving and to invite it to stay. You can join on the water or on land (there will be loaner and rental kayaks available). Either way, we need as many people as possible to come to take a stand against Arctic Drilling on this day.

For more details, to get on the email list, and to let us know you would like to be part of the ShellNo Flotilla go to:
