On Sunday July 9th movements across NJ will unite to protect water and life from the Pilgrim Pipelines proposal, and call for an end to all forms of unsafe Bakken oil transport through our water sources and our communities.
A large coalition of organizations will unite on July 9th to say: 
Water Is Life!                                                             
No Pilgrim Pipelines, No Oil “bomb” Trains, and No Oil Barges through our communities and water sources! 
Just Transition to 100% Renewable Energy!
Sign up to join us at either the opening or closing ceremony (along the Ramapo River in Mahwah or at Saint Peter’s University in Englewood Cliffs) or come for the entire Water Is Life Caravan.

Here’s a few ways you can help promote this event.
  • Forward this e-mail and attached flyer to your contacts and to organizations.
  • Share our Facebook even on social media:
  • Make a commitment to arrive at Continental Soldiers Field at the Ramapo River with a vehicle full of people. Let us know how many people will be in your vehicle with you.
  • Make phone calls to help get people to sign up to participate!  Email msm… if you need a list of people to call.
  • Hand out and post flyers at libraries, schools, labor unions, farmers markets, meetings, events in your town, at parks, etc.
  • Go door to door to publicize the demonstration and sign people up participate.

All vehicles are welcome in the Caravan. Electric and hybrid cars will lead theway! Help us find people with electric or hybrid vehicles who will join. (If you have a great contact with an electric vehicle company, help us get their participation.) Each vehicle in the Caravan will receive a map of the Caravan route, a Water & Oil Don’t Mix or a No Oil Pipelines, Rails, or Barges window flag for their car, and a caravan brochure. The educational brochure will detail the specific risks of transport of Bakken crude oil and other fossil fuels along the Caravan route, the importance of keeping Bakken crude and other fossil fuels in the ground, and  the urgency of a just and rapid transition to 100% renewable energy.
