Line in the Sand project dissects Northern Gateway pipeline

Jean-Philippe Marquis and Tomas Borsa, co creators in St. James, B.C.

You can change the environmental conversation. Chip in to rabble's donation drive today!

You could say Tomas Borsa and his buddies have drawn a "line in the sand" between anger and activism. Spurred by what they saw as the lack of deeper public and community input into the environmental risks of a twin pipeline that would run 1,177 kilometres between Bruderheim, Alberta to Kitimat, B.C. the gang got their game on.

Documenting the ghosts in our industrial food machine

Please support our coverage of democratic movements and become a supporting member of rabble.ca.

With the aid of a local guide, Toronto photographer Jo-Anne McArthur climbs through the fence at a fox fur farm in an undisclosed location in the European countryside.

There, row after row of buildings cover cage after cage of frightened animals; the foxes are grey and black, beautiful -- and making unearthly cries and groans, like the sounds from a horror film. But these noises are very much part of the capitalistic, industrialized relationship between humans and animals.
