The Spring Creek Project invites you to participate in our free, symosium, “The Thin Green Line: Creative Resistance to Fossil Fuel Development in the Pacific Northwest" Featuring speakers, workshops, and seriously joyful movement building, The Thin Green Line will gather activists, artists, writers, scientists, policy makers and engaged citizens from all over the Pacific Northwest to learn and strategize about resisting fossil fuel development. The possibility of a clean energy future for the Pacific Northwest is imminently endangered by our strategic location between the Pacific Rim energy markets and huge fossil fuel deposits in the interior of North America—Powder River Basin coal, Bakken shale oil, Alberta tar sands, and remote natural gas fields. For big energy companies to unearth their vast reserves of carbon-intense fuels and put them up for sale in Asia, they need to ship at that carbon-intense fuels—by train, by truck, by pipelines—right through our communities. Standing together to defend the Thin Green Line is essential to safeguarding a resilient green economy for our children.
