What: Build Back Fossil Free Solidarity March
Where: Meeting at Civic Center Plaza in San Francisco, across from City Hall.
We’ll march to two nearby locations of US Army Corps of Engineers offices.
When: Thursday, April 1st at 4 PM
On April 1, frontline Indigenous youth and organizers from the Dakota Access and Line 3 pipeline fights will travel to Washington D.C. to demand Biden Build Back Fossil Free and stop these climate-destroying projects. This comes exactly five years after history was made when the Sacred Stone Camp was founded and thousands of people gathered to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
On Day One, Biden kept his promise and rejected Keystone XL after a decade-long Indigenous-led fight. Now it’s time for him to use his executive powers to immediately stop the Line 3 and Dakota Access pipelines, stop all federal fossil fuel permits, and protect our communities. President Biden and Vice President Harris, you must confront environmental racism and fossil fuel companies fueling the climate crisis!
If we work together, we can demand that our government act to give everyone a fair chance to recover from this pandemic, with a just recovery that loosens the grip of fossil fuel companies on our democracy.
Join us as we take to the streets of San Francisco. We’ll meet next to SF City Hall, at the edge of Civic Center Plaza at Polk Street and McAllister Street. We’ll then process to the sites of two nearby U.S. Army Corps of Engineers offices, to tell President Biden and VP Harris: End the Line 3 and DAPL permits and Build Back Fossil Free!
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is the agency responsible for permitting many of the fossil fuel projects we’re fighting across the country. The agency is also a part of President Biden’s executive branch, so it makes sense to target our demands to the Biden administration at local Army Corps offices.
This is an all-ages, non-violent, outdoor action.
Community safety is the number one priority, and we ask everyone in attendance to adhere to common public safety guidelines.
- WEAR MASKS
- Practice social distancing
- Use/bring hand santizer, wipes, etc..
- Stay home if you’re sick, have been exposed to anyone with COVID, or are quarantining.
