Upcoming & Recent Events


Protect the Planet participates with members of the community, concerned environmental organizations and indigenous groups in non-violent direct action events to educate and inform the government and the public about the risks and costs associated with this project and ultimately, to stop the expansion of the pipeline.

There are many ways to take action. See Get Involved.
