|When:||Sunday, May 27th|
|Where:||11:30am at Lincoln Park for bike ride + trash cleanup on way to action
2:00pm at 64th Avenue and York Street
On Sunday, May 27th, Occupy Denver will be teaming up again with groups such as Deep Green Resistance, 350.org, and families from local communities that are directly affected by the Commerce City Suncor refinery for a demonstration against Suncor and the oil seep contaminating the Sand Creek and South Platte River. You can visit us on Facebook for information about the benzene spill here. We are asking everyone concerned about our water, air, land and future to stand with us.
Over the last year, many people and various organizations have united to oppose the Alberta tar sands and the Keystone XL Pipeline, correctly recognizing these industrial projects as ecocidal insanity. Here in Colorado, oil from the tar sands is refined by Suncor Energy. By participating in the process of facilitating genocide against the aboriginal people of Alberta, Suncor Energy has toxified our air, land and water without end. By bringing together active members of the Colorado community in coalition, we will align to force Suncor to stop destroying and poisoning our world, both here in Colorado and in Canada.
On Sunday, May 27th, we will occupy the ‘hot zone’ on the shore of Sand Creek, where carcinogenic benzene from Suncor’s refinery has been seeping into the water. By occupying the hot zone, we hope to bring public attention to the fact that Suncor is killing Colorado communities, water and wildlife, and to force this industrial polluter to confront the effects of its actions. It is also our hope to form strong alliances with one another and begin to work in partnership so we can effectively move forward against Suncor’s unethical and irresponsible practices.
For this action, members of Occupy Denver will be hosting a bike ride and trash cleanup along the Platte River bike path to the Suncor Refinery (weather permitting). Anyone is welcome and everyone is encouraged to take part in this. We will meet between 11:30 AM and noon at Lincoln Park, in front of the State Capitol, to leave from there. Those who do not wish to take part in the bike ride can carpool to 64th Avenue and York Street, where we will all meet up at about 2:00 PM to eat and walk to the site of the action at the confluence of Sand Creek and South Platte River. Food will be provided by Denver Food Rescue (?), and representatives from various groups will be speaking. Be aware that fumes from the oil and the refinery can sometimes make the area uncomfortable for people with compromised respiratory systems. We encourage everyone to bring their theatrical ideas to dramatize this event (haz-mat suits, EPA inspector costumes, gas masks, “fracking fluid,” etc. would be quite appropriate here).
It is our hope to see as many of you as possible at this demonstration. Suncor is actively destroying our planet, and should be stopped. Suncor’s role in the tar sands is contributing to a devastated climate and is harming indigenous communities in Canada as well as people living in local communities in Colorado. Please join us on May 27th to stand against these injustices and degradation of our Earth.
UPDATE January 4 2010 With the autopsy report out today and final police report out , it appears the Lafayette Police department are minimalistic because the actions of Patrice Clark happened when she was incredibly drunk. They are now saying it could have been an accident?? Nonsense. That is the biggest bunch of police bullshit we have heard in a long long time. Oh How could the pretty mom with a beautiful daughter carry out a murder. ? right? Is that what they are thinking? Easy. Her drunken demise gave her the courage to murder her daughter and kill herself. That’s what the police in Laff alot won’t admit nor give as a possible scenario. To us it is the only scenario. Read below about her.
November 20, 2010 Lafayette Apparently Patrice Clark blackened the windows in her garage, started her car, and forced her nine year old daughter Nicole to breath the deadly fumes. Was Patrice drunk again? Probably. She had over a ten year history of domestic violence and alcoholism. She had been to jails and institutions repeatedly and finally death.
News reports from the Daily Camera and reporter John Aguilar show a long history of police calls, hospitalization, jail for child abuse, DUIs, and treatment for Alcoholism.
She had also been to the Addiction Recovery Center recently where she told her counselor “all I want to do is get out of here and drink”. Clark had been to the ARC numerous times; “She would always leave with some very sketch patient from the ARC and go off and get drunk”, the counselor told Boulder Channel 1 news on a condition of anonymity. ARC records are considered confidential . Police nor social services can access them. This proved to be a fatal policy. ”The ARC had knowledge of nearly a dozen DUI arrests for Clark, but this was not revealed to police nor courts.” the councelor said. The counclor also said of Clark” well she’s dead now and so is poor little Niciole. A lot of good confidentiality did her. I just hope her mother didn’t force Nicole to breath the fumes. Maybe she gave her a seditive first.”
That’s not likely considering Clark’s long history of violence and child abuse. One question remains. How could the Lafayette police and Boulder County social Services have ever left a child in that womens care.???
One alcoholism expert told Boulder Channel 1 news “Some people drink so much or mix alcohol with drugs that it actually causes brain damage and drives them violently insane.” This appears to be the case with Patricia Clark. Most alcoholics do go mad. Some just never recover. ‘Most do if they have the capacity to be honest and thorough from the very start.’
