PowerShift BC Day of Action!

Harper, Clark and big oil are ramping up their campaign to push pipelines and fracking through BC opposition. Let them know we won't back down.

 

This fall, we’ve seen the Federal and Provincial governments renew their push to turn BC into a Carbon Corridor. From tar sands pipelines like the Northern Gateway and Kinder Morgan, to Fracking, LNG and coal exports, we face a critical choice. Will we choose a just and sustainable future or to become a gateway to climate disaster?

 

Government and industry seem dedicated to pushing through pipelines, despite a resounding “No” that has been issued by First Nations and communities all across the province. If they build it, we will come together across generations and block it.

 

What: PowerShift BC March and Action. Hundreds of youth from across the province and beyond took to the streets to demand a just and sustainable future ending at the BC Legislature

 

The PowerShift October 7th Day of Action was organized in solidarity with Idle No More’s National Day of Action on the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Royal Proclamation. For more information please check out:
