Elsipogtog Solidarity Action in Victoria

Indigenous people of Elsipogtog and their allies have been shutting down the highways to stop fracking exploration trucks from entering their territory.  Oil industry executives have been quoted in news reports saying shale gas would provide a cheap source of energy for the firm to process  bitumen coming from Alberta.  Yesterday in downtown Victoria we marched to demonstrate our solidarity with their fight to stop extreme resource extraction that is damaging our planet beyond repair.  For more information please read reclaimturtleisland.com

Please share.  Spread the word.  Together, from coast to coast to coast, we will stop tar sands expansion and return to clean, fair and democratic living. 

this is a good thing?

Canada tar sands

No, it is not good that our governments are basing our future on the killing of the inhabitants of our planet in order for us to flourish. That is the tar sands.  That is Ecocide.  We are now living with climate change which will continue to gain momentum unless we stop fossil fuel extraction and the burning of that fuel.  Talk to someone today about the future our children deserve.

For the love of our planet we will show up!

Many thousands across our majestic country gathered to protest against the devastation of land, air and water. Canada is contributing to climate change on a massive scale.   With tar sands and pipeline expansion this destruction will only increase.

Yesterday was about saying NO.  We don’t want our economic prosperity to depend on genocide and ecocide.  There has to be a better way, a brighter future.  A positive, loving movement is growing.  Here are some photos.DSCN3135DSCN3157 IMG_3570

See you at the beach!

Decisions are made by those who show up. Today is the day Canadians will let our elected officials know, we know about climate change.  It seems they have no idea that burning fossil fuels is putting our future in peril.
