Photos from ShellNo Action Council's post in ShellNo Flotilla ~ Paddle in Seattle!
THANK YOU, thank you, thank you to the hundreds of you that responded to the call yesterday and showed up in force to the #PaddleinSeattle to send a very clear, powerful, and beautiful message:

DEFEND THE ARCTIC ~ CLIMATE JUSTICE NOW!

The word Flotilla has been redefined by yesterday's massive #ShellNoFlotilla

We also floated and paddled in solidarity with our indigenous brothers and sisters who led us and shared powerful words from the Duwamish and from Alaska and the Arctic region.

And an Orca whale was spotted right in front of the Water Taxi dock at 7:50pm last night. Someone was accompanying us under the water!

This battle is by no means over and we are already winning.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's #YouShellNotPass Day of Mass Nonviolent Direct Action! https://shellno.org
