Coastal GasLink/Transcanada is proposing a 670-kilometer fracked gas pipeline that would carry fracked gas from Dawson Creek, B.C. to the coastal town of Kitimat, where LNG Canada’s processing plant would be located. LNG Canada is the single largest private investment in Canadian history. All five clans of the Wet’suwet’en have unanimously opposed all pipeline proposals and are facing violance and intimidation due to their resistance.

also: Oppose a liquified natural gas (LNG) pipeline for fracked gas in Jordan Cove, Oregon, USA (sign here). The project was initially rejected by federal regulators, but now that the Trump administration is overseeing the federal permits, we can’t count on a good decision.

This is an unacceptably long period. More than half of the palm oil in Europe is used for agrofuels. Tell the European Commission to take action on this issue.
