“I was born into this responsibility to put my body on the line for environmental & social justice. People of color experience the effects of fossil fuel projects Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion first. We have to #StopKM!” -Reggie #StopPipelines pic.twitter.com/WrzERJtmJ4 — Greenpeace USA (@greenpeaceusa) May 15, 2018

LIVE: “I’m here locked down at Kinder Morgan’s Seattle facility in solidarity with Coast Salish folks & everyone around the world who will be impacted by reckless pipelines.” -Reggie, GPUS activist & Seattle resident #StopKm #StopPipelines pic.twitter.com/6IbAMjmVGd — Greenpeace USA (@greenpeaceusa) May 15, 2018
As today’s #KinderMorgan protest unfolds in #Seattle & pressure on @JustinTrudeau ramps up, it’s clear that the only thing in the pipeline is resistance. It’s not “this pipeline will be built,” but “will this pipeline be built?” #stopKM. @CTVVancouver @CTVNationalNews @rachaiello https://t.co/vzA7YWquIg — Jesse Firempong (@jessatGP) May 15, 2018
Bridgette is out here with Greenpeace USA and @mosquitoFLT activists to take a stand against Kinder Morgan’s dangerous Trans Mountain pipeline expansion — which would trample Indigenous rights, and threaten our water & climate! #StopKM #StopPipelines pic.twitter.com/Is2dRUuoDI — Greenpeace USA (@greenpeaceusa) May 15, 2018
With thousands of activists speaking out all across the globe, the message is abundantly clear to the fossil fuel industry and those who back it: we won’t stop until you do.
Take a look at some of the incredible actions and activists that have been pushing back against new pipeline construction from Kinder Morgan and others, as well as the banks that continue to fund this work. The bravery and resolve of the many activists standing up for their communities and the environment is incredible.
