Clayton Thomas Mueller, Global Justice Ecology Project board member and 350.org campaigner, was recently featured on the Democracy Now! television show after 99 people were detained by police at a demonstration on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Monday. The demonstration demanded that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reject the expansion of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline, as well as all new tar sands pipelines and infrastructure.

Democracy Now! provided a transcript of Mueller’s words:
Clayton Thomas-Muller: “We know that they’re just trying to test the waters for tar sands pipelines to get that controversial tar sands oil that’s been killing Dené, Cree and Métis people in Northern Alberta with cancer, poisoning their food systems, poisoning their water systems, spreading climate chaos across the planet. Justin Trudeau is not the Disney prince that the media has been painting him out to be. He is in collusion with Big Oil. And we’re here today to support these young people, these brave warriors, for the sacredness of Mother Earth, to let him know that he needs to reject the Kinder Morgan pipeline.”
