#CruiseFreeSalishSea Rally at Pier 66!


Fri Jul 23 2021 at 01:00 pm to 03:00 pm


Pier66 Seattle Washington | Seattle, WA

#CruiseFreeSalishSea Rally at Pier 66! We will be urging passengers to make this cruise their last and urging the Port of Seattle to transition away from our unhealthy dependence on this toxic industry. We need a cruise free Salish Sea!
The recent record breaking heat wave reminds us that to avoid the worst of climate catastrophe we need to break our addiction to fossil fuel intensive activities--like cruise ships. A big greenhouse gas footprint is just one toxic aspect of these massive ships.
From the smokestacks harming our health, to dumping garbage, human waste and even engine oil straight into waterways, noise pollution disrupting our underwater relatives, on board hospitality workers often underpaid and treated harshly, avoiding taxes while stressing local infrastructure, to bully tactics used on destination communities that push back against these harms--it’s time to envision a #CruiseFreeSalishSea!
We would love folks to come help hold art and signs, hand out fliers, wear dolphin costumes and more--Please fill out this form https://forms.gle/A6HkaHHj31XC4kH26 ahead of the event to check in for a role! People are also welcome to just show up :)
