Calling all acrobats, jugglers unicyclists and clowns to RESIST Chevron and the Pacific Trail Pipeline!

American oil giant Chevron is coming to BC. They want to build a destructive pipeline across unceded indigenous territory to carry fracked gas to the coast, and export climate change to the world. We are standing in solidarity with the Unis’tot’en camp and other indigenous groups who are saying NO. We do not need fracked gas, we do not want another pipeline and we will not stand idly by as politicians and corporate clowns push us over the climate catastrophe cliff edge.

On March 30th, 2013, we will be joining the many voices who oppose Chevron’s dangerous and exploitative tycoonery in a global day of action against the multinational corporation.
Our action will take the form of a circus, in the park across from Burnaby’s very own Chevron Oil Refinery. There we will meet their callous greediness with a resistance couched in circus themed revelry.

We will be serving some food, but recommend you bring some of your own. There will be music, events and fun circus acts! Save the date and don’t be late. We will meet at the Confederation Community Centre together, and march to the park on the corner of Eton and N Wellingdon Street, across from the refinery. The rest will be up to the clowns!

Let the Circus Begin!
