This May the global climate movement will be rallying at critical climate justice sites, in massive peaceful resistance designed to slow the extraction of fossil fuels. In Western Canada this site is Burnaby Mountain and the Kinder Morgan pipeline.
In preparation, Fossil Free Faith is part of hosting a non-violent direct-action training rooted in spirit and faith. The goal is for folks to get a sense of what participating in civil disobedience might look like, the many roles for supporting peaceful acts of resistance (many of which are support roles that don’t involve risking arrest), and hold space to ask questions and do some moral/theological discernment around the risks that the climate crisis presents.
Please join us. April 30th, 2-5pm at Canadian Memorial United Church in Vancouver.
RSVP to Laurel Dykstra at: salalandcedar@vancouver.
