DLB Road Trip. Look out Louisiana, here we come
Organized by: Byrdanon Byrdman
The Detroit Light Brigade is packing 10 people in a van and driving across Turtle Island to participate in 3 days of ceremonies and actions to demand an end to new drilling leases being sold in the Gulf of Mexico. WE will be bringing our batlight to project messages on buildings and our light up letter boards! NO NEW LEASES! Please give what you can to help us all get there to participate in these historic actions! New Lease On Life! This is a historic call for an end to new drilling leases in the Gulf of Mexico! March 23, 2016 the DLB and people from all over the nation will put forward a new vision for a Gulf region powered by solar and wind energy, a phase out of fossil fuels, and an immediate hiring of 1,000 workers to repair aging oil industry infrastructure. We will encircle the Superdome and call for an end to new drilling and new leases. This action will take place during the Department of the Interior's auction of 43 million acres of our beloved Gulf of Mexico. In taking this action, we are united with other communities around the world to defend our beloved homes from drilling, mining, fracking, refining and other abuses of the extractive and fossil fuel industries. We also acknowledge the particular burden borne by the Gulf of Mexico region. "Climate change is hitting the Gulf hard already. The region is losing a football field of land every hour and at least 40 locations in the Gulf have already been removed from our coastline map forever." http://tejasbarrios.org/no-new-leasing-in-the-gulf-of-mexico/ “We must undertake the struggle in all parts of the world, wherever we may be, because we have no other spare or replacement planet. We have only this one, and we have to take action,” -Berta Caceres WE stand together! From Detroit to New Orleans WE demand an end to drilling, mining, fracking, and refining.
