Earth Day demos and other actions

This could go under "Environment" or here in activism, which I thought more appropriate.

Earth Day is actually tomorrow, but our demonstration is today here in Montréal. Last year it was utterly huge, and there were people from all over Québec, including Nunavik, the North Shore and Abitibi, which are all very, very far from Montréal. It was utterly huge. I doubt it will be as large this year, as last year we were in the midst of the Québec Spring, and there were important environmental contentions with respect to the Plan Nord and fracking here, and Harper's ecocide more generally.

Montréal 21 April 2pm (14h), Place des Festivals (métro Place des Arts or Place d'Armes).

In partnership with Idle No More.

Its Earth Week! What are your book/article/movie suggestions for all the issues surrounding environmentalism

It's Earth Week!

We thought a fun way to get the conversation going around the environmental issues and outlying factors presented by Earth Week would be to have babblers list their favourite books/movies/articles/websites that address these issues.

Earth Week, beginning today April 16 and ending with Earth Day on April 22, is supposed to be a time of positive action and results, and what better way to achieve awareness than for babblers to discuss what issues are important to them, and what mediums have affected and enriched their knowledge on those issues.

Seed libraries

Members of the Hudson Valley Seed Library, who have grown from 60 at the start to nearly 700 now, pay a $20 annual fee for 10 seed packs of their choice. The library offers 130 heirloom plant varieties, 50 of which come from locally produced seeds like Hank’s X-tra Special Baking Bean. Mr. Greene has high hopes for replenishing those seed stocks this year. The long, dry summer provided ideal seed-saving weather, he said; last year, partly due to the wet, chilly summer, only 10 percent of members sent back seeds. He should know by the end of November if his hopes have been realized.

The Un-Natural Gas Boom: A Bridge to Nowhere

I'll admit I wasn't fully aware of the scale of the un-natural gas boom until I arrived at an indigenous-led blockade of seven proposed gas pipelines. The Unist'ot'en camp was built in the path of the proposed Pacific Trails Pipelines by a group of grassroots Wet'suwet'en people who oppose the incursion onto their unceded territory. Coincidently, the same pipeline right-of-way was originally planned to be used for the Enbridge pipeline, that is until the Unist'ot'en built their clan cabin on the banks of the Wedzin Kwa (colonial name: Morice River).
