Northern Michigan knows how to lead on climate issues! We participated in the 350.org Draw the Line event on Saturday, September 21 where 60 local citizens formed a line to Protect our Great Lakes and to fight for the climate. We had banners, flyers, and a replica of the 60 year old Enbridge Energy Mackinac Pipeline that carries crude oil through the Straits of Mackinac.
Join us on October 9 for the Oil & Water Don’t Mix – Traverse City event!
WHEN: Wednesday, October 9, 2013, 6:00pm
WHERE: Inside Out Gallery – 229 Garland St., Traverse City, MI
WHY: Hear Beth Wallace speak, watch a video, sign the petition, have FUN!
In July 2013 we held a big event at the Straits of Mackinac - Oil & Water Don’t Mix: Rally for the Great Lakes, where almost 500 people came to listen to amazing speakers and learn about the threat posed by aging pipelines that carry crude oil through the heart of the Great Lakes.
We launched a petition drive at the event to tell Governor Snyder to replace the 60 year old pipeline, and to prohibit the transport of tar sands oil through our precious resource.
This event will feature the author of the report that brought attention to the pipeline, Beth Wallace of the National Wildlife Federation, as she talks about the threat and what we can do about it. We’ll also screen the video from the event. Afterwards, we’ll sign the petition meet and greet at the cash bar and listen to music from the True Falsettos.
