World leaders say we have to stay below 1.5°C of warming to avoid radical climate destabilization. No current policies keep us anywhere near this goal, and the fossil fuel industry is turning the Northwest into a dirty energy superhighway.

But it’s not too late. We can lead a just transition [1] to 100% renewable energy safeguarding workers and our climate. We cannot delay. Join us May 13, 14, 15 as we put our bodies on the line to stop the fossil fuel economy and change history.


TAKE ACTION

To change everything, it will take everyone.

Thousands of people are converging upon March Point in Anacortes, WA in mid-May 2016. This is a site with two refineries where hundreds of people will risk arrest by engaging in peaceful civil disobedience. We are asking YOU to join this historic convergence and begin the global break from fossil fuels. Please fill out the form below to let us know you plan to participate in Break Free.

This May, We’re Breaking Free!

Last year, the Pacific Northwest said SHELL NO! to one of the biggest fossil fuel companies on the planet.

This May, we’re breaking free from an industry that’s driving the climate crisis and threatening lives, livelihoods and food supplies worldwide.

We’re breaking free from an industry that threatens our communities with leaking pipelines and exploding oil trains, and puts our communities at risk.

We’re breaking free from an industry that plans to turn the Northwest into a dirty energy superhighway with the largest coal and oil terminals on the continent.

We’re breaking free from business as usual.

The Shell and Tesoro refineries near Anacortes, WA are the largest unaddressed source of carbon pollution in the Northwest, refine 47% of all the gas and diesel used in the region, and are proposing new oil-train and export facilities; they are a prime example of the system that must change—within years, not decades. 

We’re breaking free from extractive economies that treat workers as disposable and communities as sacrifice zones.

We believe in a just transition that provides real economic alternatives to communities dependent on dirty infrastructure, protects workers’ job security as fossil fuel use declines, and balances the injustice of the climate crisis by supporting the communities most impacted by fossil fuels here and around the world.

Action plans are still coming together. Sign up now to get the latest details straight from event organizers.

We’re calling for a Just Transition!

Extractive economies treat workers as disposable and communities as sacrifice zones. As we move to a 100% renewable energy future we have a duty to build a more just society.  A just transition provides real economic alternatives to communities dependent on dirty infrastructure, protects workers’ job security as fossil fuel use declines, and balances the injustice of the climate crisis by supporting the communities most impacted by fossil fuels here and around the world.
