Thanks for protecting the rainforest, Friends! ✊
"The late 1980s were a time of burgeoning ecological awareness. In that global context, FOCS expanded its goal, from protecting Meares Island to protection of all of Clayoquot Sound. A series of logging blockades ensued, culminating in the mass protests of Clayoquot Summer 1993. In the iconic act of civil disobedience in Canadian history, 12,000 people attended our Peace Camp, and 856 people were arrested for peacefully blocking the road. This succeeded in drawing international attention, making protection of temperate rainforests a global priority." - Friends of Clayoquot Sound
Sweating it out for peace and healing - yesterday I had the honour of helping transform a small patch of garden in the DTES into a spiritual anchor point. Through the heat, darkness and steam we sent our love and prayers to women, men, children and ourselves and boy was it powerful. Tomorrow, on Valentines, we remember the MMIW lost to the violence of our society. We will never forget you and will continue to work to make things better for present and future generations 💙
Aren't we supposed to have pink blossom snow on the ground by now?
