Dear Religious Leaders
Posted by: SALAL AND CEDAR WATERSHED DISCIPLESHIP COMMUNITY·SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 2018
To the dear Religious Leaders and all people of faith and spirit,The moment to stop the dangerous Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker project is upon us. For 7 years now Kinder Morgan has been threatening Coast Salish lands, waters, culture and spirit by poisoning our territory with oil and wrecking the climate that sustains us all, with its dangerous Trans Mountain pipeline. And for 7 years, Tsleil-Waututh members have been protecting our territory from proposed oil flowing through our lands, and tankers intruding our Inlet.Now, we are asking you to stand with us in our defense of the lands and waters. Please join us on Burnaby Mountain on April 28 to take bold action against the Kinder Morgan pipeline.Coast Salish members, spiritual leaders, and youth will be on the land practicing our culture and spirit as we have for time immemorial. We are calling on you to stand with us as we assert our traditions and practices on our territory, for the sake of reconciliation and decolonization. It is time for you to join our Coast Salish people and do whatever it takes to stop Kinder Morgan.
O’siem and Hay cha qa,
Project Leader for Kwekwecnewtxw-Protect the Inlet
these lands upon which we worship as the ancestral, cultural, traditional and unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people from time immemorial.
