Rising Tide Seattle is a grassroots, all-volunteer collective taking direct action to confront the root causes of climate change and support communities on the frontlines of extractive industries. Rising Tide Seattle was born amidst a flurry of fossil fuel development that threatens both the climate and communities across the Pacific Northwest. From coal export terminals to tar sands tankers, exploding oil trains, pipelines and refineries – fossil fuel infrastructure is threatening the Salish Sea. Rising Tide Seattle challenges the political and economic systems that prioritize profit, infinite growth, and white settler dominance over indigenous peoples, community health, and a livable planet. We are committed to stopping the extraction of fossil fuels and preventing the construction of new fossil fuel infrastructure. While doing so we work toward a just transition to sustainable livelihoods. We challenge corporate power, colonialism, and all forms of racism, sexism, and other structural oppression. We promote social justice, biocentrism, local autonomy, self-sufficiency, and the rights of indigenous peoples. We see the answer to the climate crisis in community-based solutions, not corporate megaprojects. Want to work with us? You can get in touch at risingtideseattle (at) riseup (dot) net.
