SEP. 30, 2015 - VICTORIA, BC EMERGENCY RALLY RE SITE C

by posted by Janet (at Dialogue)
(Nanaimo)


Breaking News! We’ve just learned that Site C will be debated in the B.C. Legislature today! Sep. 30th, 2015.

Please join us for a lightning rally in front of the Legislature today, Wednesday, September 30 from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Last week B.C. mayors and councillors asked the B.C. government to hit “pause” on the Site C dam. They are concerned about Site C’s impact on families and communities across B.C. The dam would destroy agricultural land that can feed 1 million people, and leave us footing the $9 billion bill for power generation that we don’t need.

Please bring signs! Remind our MLA’s and the media that Site C would flood prime farmland at a time when food prices are rising. Site C is strongly opposed by Treaty 8 First Nations and is being challenged in court by West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations as well as Peace Valley landowners. The B.C. Government and Service Employees Union and Canadian Farmers’ Union also strongly oppose the project.

Join me today!
Where: B.C. Legislature (501 Belleville St, Victoria)
When: 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Who: You, your friends, and your family!

I hope to see you there!
Sincerely,
Ana Simeon, Peace Valley campaigner
Sierra Club BC
&
Andrea Morison
Peace Valley Environment Association

QUOTES

"The civilized have created the wretched, quite coldly and deliberately, and do not intend to change the status quo; are responsible for their slaughter and enslavement; rain down bombs on defenseless children whenever and wherever they decide that their "vital interests" are menaced, and think nothing of torturing a man to death: these people are not to be taken seriously when they speak of the 'sanctity' of human life, or the 'conscience' of the civilized world." - James Baldwin, Source: page 489 of COLLECTED ESSAYS (1998), from chapter one of "The Devil Finds Work" (orig. pub. 1976)

"Since world war two we've managed to create history's first truly global empire. This has been done by the corporatocracy, which are a few men and women who run our major corporations and in doing so also run the U.S. government and many other governments around the world." - John Perkins, 2005, author of the book titled 'Confessions of and Economic Hit Man' 

In the struggle of Good against Evil, it's always the people who get killed. - Eduardo Galeano  

"It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely." - Leo Buscaglia, author and university professor (1924-1998)
