Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017 from 8:30-11:30a.m.: Attend the Red Line Salish Sea (formerly the Bellingham #NoDAPL Coalition) Court Hearing at the Superior Court of the State of Washington for Whatcom County, 311 Grand Ave, Bellingham, WA 98225. We need your support in these court hearings to shed light on the injustice taking place behind the court doors in Whatcom County. We ask that you fill the courtrooms to send a message that we will not be intimidated and corruption will not be ignored. One hearing is in Bellingham on 11/14/17 and the other is in Seattle on 11/17/17. We call on our Southern allies to show up in Seattle to support. Attend both if possible! Our freedoms depend on it. Wear red in solidarity. Visit the RC calendar page or Facebook for more information about the hearings. For more background on the warrants against Bellingham #NoDAPL Coalition, please visit Red Line Salish Sea Facebook page.
