Stein takes part in anti-fossil fuels actions in Washington State

p_Jill_Break_Free_WA_Its_In_Our_HandsGreen Party presidential candidate Jill Stein says she spent her “birthday weekend in Washington State with Greens and other activists taking part in the Break Free from Fossil Fuels global wave of action. And this was truly global: tens of thousands of activists in 13 countries joined together to march in the streets, occupy rail lines, harbors and mines, and hold vibrant community gatherings to demand that coal, oil and gas stay in the ground.”

Stein “joined the Mosquito Fleet ‘kayaktivists’ to occupy the harbor near Anacortes, where the Shell and Tesoro refineries make up the Pacific Northwest’s largest source of carbon pollution” last Friday, and on Saturday joined “the Indigenous Day of Action to break free from fossil fuels. For countless generations, Indigenous peoples have led the way as enlightened stewards of Mother Earth, a tradition that continues today.”

Stein said, “Throughout the weekend I was thrilled to see so many young people taking direct action in the vital movement for climate justice. They represent a new generation that isn’t fooled by a corporate media and political establishment that tries to disempower them.”
