We met in a park and marched to an export facility. No civil disobedience or direct action was planned for the event, but the organizers promised that the new tar sands extraction infrastructure would be stopped, that this march was only a friendly beginning. Speakers spoke about the horrors of the pipelines and extraction, the ignoring of tribal sovereignty, the all-too-recent pipeline spill in the neighborhood we marched in, and the like. A ten-year old sang a rather breathtaking song about the need to listen to the land.
