Monday August 11, 2014 from 11 am – 1:30 pm (Indian Time) In solidarity with Protect the Sacredness of the Salish Sea, please join us for a rally at the waterfront of the Sculpture Park at 2901 Western Ave, Seattle WA 98121. With the possibility of coal terminals being built in Longview and on the great Lummi Nation’s sacred burial ground we face unfathomable risk to our health, land, water, and all of life in the Salish Sea. Thousands of coal trains, tar sands/oil trains and tankers would come through Washington State! The beach we will be at is a sacred gathering place of the Coast Salish people. We will stand in solidarity with all our brothers and sisters as we honor our ancestors, and recommit ourselves as stewards of this land for us and future generations. Please join us in prayer, song, and light lunch. Bring your drums, rattles, and water from your area for a Water Blessing, canoe landing, jam session, and a symbolic blocking of the trains.
