GLOBAL CLIMATE STRIKE DAY, SEPT 20: Waco Action at Exxon Mobile

When:  Friday, September 20, 2019,  3pm until 5pm (come when you can)

Where: Exxon Mobil Pipeline Co., 1501 Pecan Lane, Lacy-Lakeview 76705















Logistics:  This is a small Exxon building with adjacent pipeline structures.  The somewhat secluded street is a dead end and very quiet.  Spaces to protest are present alongside Pecan Lane.  Please be sure to bring your sign.  Suggestions:  Exxon Lies, the Planet Dies or Fries or People Die;  Keep it in the Ground; NO NEW Fossil Fuel Infrastructure;  Renewables are the Future;  Exxon: Climate Criminal; Exxon Knew; Fossil Fuels Kill

Why:  This action will be in solidarity with this global day of action.  Exxon Mobile is a huge reason we are in this climate emergency.  Exxon has understood the science for about 40 years and has funded lies and misinformation to delay climate action which would impact their bottom line.  One can view Exxon as essentially a criminal corporation.  No doubt word of this protest (in Waco, even) will reach the main Exxon offices.

We hope all of our members who are available at that time will join us.  The climate strategy is certainly multi-factorial, from renewable growth to divestment to government legislation.  And protests are important in building the movement, solidarity, and informing local citizens that we now LIVE WITHIN A GLOBAL CLIMATE EMERGENCY.  Please join us. 

Exxon Mobile Action

About ten activists mounted a protest at the Exxon Mobile Pipeline Co. on Friday, September 20th, in support of the global climate strike day.
