Memorial Day isn’t generally a celebrated holiday on the Earth First! calendar, but in light of the unprecedented mobilization of military veterans stepping up at Standing Rock to defend water protectors last year and the killing of pipeline saboteur and veteran James “Jim” Marker in Florida earlier this year, we think it’s appropriate to attend Memorial Day activities, or plan our own, to honor a fallen brother whose life was lost to police officers acting on behalf of corporations building the Sabal Trail pipeline.
Please consider downloading this poster to spread widely this weekend wherever you may live. [A higher resolution version for printing can be found here.]
Another way to honor Jim Marker is to mark your calendars for June 9, which has been called as a “Nationwide Mass Demonstration Against ALL Pipelines” by Sabal Trail Resistance.
