Today will be the last day we will accept funds through the t-shirt fundraiser. Everyone has been bailed out, and due to rising postage costs on January 26th we need to get our order in now to not lose money on shipping. If you still wish to donate to the Tarsands blockade, do so at http://tarsansdblockade.com
****1/9/2013 3pm UPDATE****
We have raised enough for Mike’s bond thanks to your support!!! If you would like to donate to the general fund for the tar sands blockade and receive a free shirt (for donations $30 and over) we will keep this campaign going until January 18th
Audrey has been released! We are a mere couple hundred dollars away from getting Mike out today! In the first 5 days we raised over $1000 for legal support! This fundraiser will continue for the next 9 days and will go towards the Tarsands Blockade Bail fund / Legal Support. A sincere thank you to everyone who helped promote this fundraiser over social media & raise awareness for The Tarsands Blockade. And a “put your money where your mouth is” shout out and thank you goes out to everyone who donated. Solidarity!!!
Occupy Denver stands in solidarity with Idle No More and The Tar Sands Blockade in Texas, which for almost 40 days has successfully impeded the progress of the ecological nightmare known as the Keystone XL pipeline. To learn more about the blockade, and why it is so important click here.
2 of the 6 arrestees are facing $10,000 bonds. 3 arrestees are from the Occupy Denver community. Everyone has been released except for Mike & Audrey who were occupying the tree encampment. We extend the spirit of mutual aid to all the brave blockaders that have been imprisoned w/ trumped up charges for defending the people of North America from true eco-terrorists…. Transcanada.
We are holding an E-fundraiser, a “T- Shirt blockade-a-thon.” If you donate over $30 you will receive a t-shirt crafted from the banner that hung from the blockade trees bearing the phrase, “You shall not pass.” This fundraiser will end on January 18th, at which point we will tally the orders, have them manufactured and ship them out within 2 weeks from the 18th.
The T-shirts themselves are being printed on American Made Anvil cotton shirts and printed by P & L printing. The costs of the shirts will be about $5, and they will cost between $2-3 to ship via USPS. Everything beyond costs will go towards the Tar Sands Blockade legal fund. If you live outside of the United States please add an additional $5 for shipping. If you wish to donate an amount other than $10, $30, or $100, click the other button.
Please note, if you donate less then $30 you will not receive a t-shirt!
We know that no amount of “ethical consumerism” can turn back the destructive forces that have been unleashed on our planet. We also know that people like t-shirts and we want our comrades out of jail as soon as possible.
