Join the women of Idle No More SF Bay at the gates of the Chevron Refinery in Richmond, California this Friday as they RISE for Climate Justice. The Rising will include a morning of prayer, song, teachings and perhaps a round dance. All women are welcome! Allies too! Injustices against our bodies reflect injustices against the earth. The rape and plunder of resources, the environment and the planet impact women’s lives and will not be tolerated. RISE with the women of the Bay Area who stand up for CLIMATE and ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE!
They will gather at Richmond BART at 8:30am on MacDonald Avenue in Richmond to carpool to Chevron (it’s a bit tricky to find).
Additional Meet-up and Bart info:

Idle No More Bay Area California
Idle No More is an indigenous revolution started by three First Nations women and one woman of “settler” descent that began in the winter of 2012 in Canada. It is a movement to prevent further damage and restore Mother Earth, as well as to prevent further damage to indigenous communities. It has become a global movement primarily led by women.
Idle No More Bay has been active since March of 2013 and is an affinity group which organizes actions in the Bay Area and meets regularly. Nonviolent actions have been conducted at Richmond Chevron, Kinder Morgan in Richmond, Canadian Consulate in San Francisco, and other corporate facilities which are harming Mother Earth. Our actions include prayer, teach-ins, a round dance and sometimes choosing to risk arrest. All who have a commitment to nonviolence are welcome to attend our actions. Members of our group are very involved in the local activist community.
