“We are in a kind of climate emergency now” 
We have to stay below 1.5°C of warming to avoid radical climate destabilization. No current policies keep us anywhere near this goal: we’re barreling towards double that, leaving us with a broken world. This has to change, and we have to lead. We have to Break Free from Fossil Fuels.
Break Free From Fossil Fuels is a global climate movement initiative to shut down the world’s most dangerous fossil fuel projects and support the most ambitious climate solutions.
In the Pacific Northwest, we’re breaking free by taking on the Pacific Northwest’s biggest carbon bomb: the Shell and Tesoro refineries at March Point in northern Washington. The Shell and Tesoro refineries combined are the largest unaddressed point source of carbon pollution in the Northwest and refine 47% of all the gas and diesel consumed in the region; they are an integral part of the system that we must change—within years, not decades.
By land and by sea, we’ll engage in creative and inspirational sit-ins, blockades, and kayaktivism. There will also be support roles and general opportunities for participation for people who do not want to engage in civil disobedience.
We hope you can be a part of this powerful movement moment. Plans are coming together quickly and we want you to be a part of it from the very beginning!

Break Free from Fossil Fuels is about more than one action. It’s about accelerating our movement to take on – and defeat – the fossil fuel industry and the political powers behind it. It’s time to shift the public narrative on what is possible and what is necessary for a rapid and just transition off of fossil fuels.
We hope you join us as we #breakfree.
